Yes, truly Poe says the present trend in poetry writing in the past itself! Only trash, trivial and nonsense are taking a large portion of poetry making it impossible to say even an half profound idea ever! Indeed it is an enigma now!
I love to read Poe's work but, this poem is ity's title: 'An Enigma'in that its inexplicable. 'Seldom we find, ' says Solomon Don Dunce, ' Half an ides in the profondest sonnet says it all... I'll just leave it as that.
Poe was a Master of cryptic-code.....undelying messages, tale-telling, a many poetic heart....Acrostical diagramming names, places, incuding his own home address, in Boston, Mass, is one of many facets that define E.A. Poe, as arguably the most talented literary mind, of anytime.
