    I enjoyed this poem immensely! Edgar Allan Poe really inspired many with his maniacal ways and demented style. He certainly inspired me. I only wish I could thank him for bringing a new style all his own into the world of literature. (Report) Reply

    I LOVE this poem. I began my interest of Poe and his poems from an album actually, called The Emptiness by a GREAT band, Alesana. The album is based on this poem. I'm doing an English paper on him too. (Report) Reply

    Poe has created inspiration that flows through the best of us as writers. Anything can be possible as Poe has demonstrated.

    It's funny how you can love someone so much, and still feel relieved when they're gone, becuase you know you will see them again. It is even funnier when you love that person even more when they are dead. But the truest love is the one that is not changed by death. You do not love the person more because they died. Because you simply cannot love them anymore than they do. Surely some people agree (Report) Reply

    Poetry in itself doesn't get much better than this. (Report) Reply

    The poem is sheer despair and romance. Despair and romance make Edgar Allan Poe who he is. Of course, this poem is nothing less of perfection. (Report) Reply

    pretty good poem. i found this because i wanted to do something for my English project based off of the new alesana cd 'the emptiness'. then found out the whole album was based off of this poem. But the album is AMAZING! and even if you don't like they're music it is worth picking up just to read the lyric booklet and the short story booklet based off of this poem. it is INCREDIBLE! :) (Report) Reply

    '...The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, / Went envying her and me...'

    Somehow, the A in 'angels' just fits with the alliteration on H. Maybe it's because the Hs are all followed by vowels and two of those vowels are As?
    No matter; 'not half so happy in Heaven' is a lovely alliterative line, but it's very much improved by 'the angels' in preceding it. (Report) Reply
