    ' Highborn kinsman ' I think he means death himself a beautiful phrase. It is interesting that Poe married his first cousin when she was only thirteen and he was twenty seven. We do not know if the marriage was consecrated.
    I wonder if she was the childhood innocent love in this poem. She died at the young age of twenty four of tuberculosis.

    The most tragically beautiful love poem ever written in the English language
    or maybe in any language.
    A poetic masterpiece.

    ...........honestly and seriously and with all due respect, on this complete list of top 500 poems of Poemhunter this poem should be listed as number 1....I'm certain Poe invested a great deal of time into this beautiful narrative poem...and I'm also certain this poem would be more challenging, than any other poem listed...honestly, who can write a poem such as this, anyone? ★ (Report) Reply
