    I remember this poem from when I was in school!
    Poe died young, but he was certainly a master of the macabre. He stands alone in that regard.

    There always is a time when we explore dark side of life but talking about is remains forbidden and against social norms. One who wants to talk about it seems to collect the impression of being secluded from social environment hence feels alone. Poe has capitalized on this emotion wonderfully. (Report) Reply

    This for me describes the amazing dichotomy of our perceptions which are always between passion and the darker side. To accentuate optimism is perhaps in Edgar's eyes unrealistic. (Report) Reply

    The mystery binds still. Common man feels spring through love. Passions from a common spring are witnessed. An interesting and brilliant poem beautifully penned....10 (Report) Reply

    This poem should be introduced to the acadmic level.
    The introduction of the problem and and the recognition of the demon is greatly depicted.

    This man was a true, yet troubled genius. His ability to transform normal imagery into subjective perspective is certainly a masterful art. (Report) Reply
