    Its a wonderful poem is not it? Its full of imagery to suggest the subconscious and nightmares of the unhappy subject.He is irresistably drawn back to that in the past which has caused him guilt or unhappiness.This resonates strongly with me because I have the same personality trait myself.

    This is my favourite poem of all time. It has everything! Enchantment, mystery, chivallry, courage, daring, youth, magic...
    Apparently, I am not the only one to rate this poem (and Poet!) in the highest regard - one of the Masters of writing, Steven King wrote his whole 'Dark Tower' series because of this very poem! !
