    Here avow means to acknowledge openly without shame,
    and deem means to judge or consider..

    Its difficult to part with someone be it dream or reality...
    After all, every thing is illusion..and we are perplexed... (Report) Reply

    I don't know the background of the poem yet definitely poe would have been in a great agony when he wrote this poem. This is such a great work of Poe as noone can escape its charm. Great poem with a lavish style of writing. (Report) Reply

    Gifted, imaginative, and true, Edgar Allan Poe knows how to bring a poem to life. The vigor of his words and their meaning reaches beyond the screen and touches the soul. (Report) Reply

  • Jason Bradley (5/23/2010 6:45:00 PM)

    In that a dream is fleeting and hard to remember, Poe seems to be relating his feeling of desperation and sadness at the passing of time, and comparing it to a dream. He wishes he could save just one moment of his life, or the life of another. 'Take this kiss upon the brow, and, in parting from you now-' (Report) Reply

    the darkness within poe only few can understand... the ones who have darkness within them too. he was so disturbed and his poems are haunting. he is my favorite poem of all time :) (Report) Reply

    a lot of people will never understand poe. that is a terrible thing. poe was tormented by numerous devils and his poems and stories were his escapism. poe actually wrote only 50 poems in his life, only 50. not volumes upon volumes. but every one was a work worthy of the effort of a genius.

    Edgar Allan Poe dreamed great poetic dreams and spun them into poems which may intrigue or sadden us, some of these poems attain haunting resonance within the mind, his poems are dreams within the dream of life. (Report) Reply
