    the poem speaks of his being how different he was from everyone else how he view things differently than others even in the common simple joys that most people enjoyed in creation his passion and views were dark and gloomily, I think this poem gives a little en-site into Poe's life and how he viewed it, (Report) Reply

    This poem still resonates with me just as it did the first time I read it. Rhyme like rock-n-roll will never die, as long as we have masters like Poe to read. (Report) Reply

    I can relate to this easily. The written pain and thought of abyss is clear, and that is how it feels. Just a complete and utter master piece. (Report) Reply

    Gorgeous poem with a great meaning... uniqueness can alienate a person to the point of being so different that you don't understand people in general; it can turn you into a sociopath.

    A chilling portrait of what alienation and loneliness can do to a person, that is alien from everyone else, painful but beautiful. (Report) Reply

    I heard, mostly on here, that Poe wanted to discard this poem and scratch it from his records.
    Not sure why, it might not be The Conqueror Worm but Alone gives me goose bumps every time I read it…Isn’t that the idea? (Report) Reply
