    I m a way too big of a fan of Edgar Allan Poe to rate it differently Out out are the lights out all And, over each quivering form, The curtain, a funeral pall, Comes down with the rush of a storm, While the angels, all pallid and wan, Uprising, unveiling, affirm That the play is the tragedy, Man, And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.But even I have to say that there are some of his poem that I do not particularly like, such as Al Aaraaf and The Bells However, my all time favourite remains unchanged You cannot do better than The Raven Prophet said I, thing of evil prophet still, if bird or devil And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted never

    All that we see or seemIs but a dream within a dream The Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe will give you a fascinating glimpse into his tragic life The majority of his poems are interpreted autobiographically his achievements, his beloved wives, his losses, and ultimately, his unbecoming Reviewing a fictional collection of poems that were inspired by Mr Poe s life was a bit of a daunting task seriously, how does one successfully go about reviewing the deepest and darkest moments of someone else s real life I am sure it is agreeable to say that poetry is extremely subjective, especially when one is writing about the death of not only one wife but two Personally, I admire Mr Poe s work All of it Even the poems that I struggled to fully comprehend You will find it difficult to read Mr Poe s work aloud and not weep along with him His writing is hauntingly stunning and mentally stimulating These poems were able to provoke such a deep and profound emotion out of me whether I could relate to them or not My Top 3 Edgar Allan Poe Poems 1 Annabel Lee2 A Dream Within a Dream3 The Raven

    Em vis es do breu nocturno e incerto Sonhei com o prazer de outroraMas um sonho desperto, pela aurora,Deixou me o cora o deserto.Que faz sen o sonhar sempre acordado Aquele que olha de soslaio As coisas em redor, e com um raioApontado para o passado Aquele sonho santo vision rio,Enquanto o mundo escarnecia,Me acalentou, tal chama que irradia Guiando uma alma solit ria.E embora aquela luz, na tempestade E breu, tremesse l distanteQue mais podia haver de t o brilhante No astro claro da Verdade ____________________ Embora eu gire, n o posso voarN o consigo partir.Quero tentar, mas n o ouso deixarMeu cora o fugir.E sofrem meus anseios tal quebrantoE a arte, em sonhos presa, entretanto, Me enleva em seu encanto.Assim, a cobra que reluzOculta sob a rvore da floresta Encanta a ave e a seduzA descer e espreitar pela giesta Como essa ave, o amanteEm torno do seu fado h de pairarAt findar o m gico instanteE como eu tombar ____________________The Raven Gustave Dore Perched Upon A Bust Of Pallas Annabel Lee James McNeill Whistler Annabel Lee

    Aprovech que una amiga me lo presto para leerlo ahora que le di la oportunidad a los cuentos completos de Edgar y la verdad es que este hombre no para de sorprenderme.Fue un placer poder leer sus poes as completas de una vez por todas.Alg n d a espero poder tener un tomo propio con todas sus poes as.Como era de esperarse algunos poemas me han gustado m s que otros No es lo mismo poder leerlos en su idioma original que traducidos pero ya les dar una oportunidad.A pesar de que no me gusta mucho la poes a ni el romance creo que Poe si me ha agradado m s de lo que pensaba.

    When I was younger I was under the impression Poe was just a sort of mad man writer who seemed fixated on creepy imagery, death, shadows, fear, etc either because he was some mad genius, had a mental disorder, or was unduly affected by his fondness for alcohol In reading his poems one gets a less distorted and shallow sense of the man he was, essentially, lonely He craved companionship and love like most humans However, it appears he felt that Fate, God, and the Universe were unspeakably cruel to have taken his young bride barely 14 when he married her and a cousin t boot away from him so early on this seems to have triggered a grieving and sorrow in him he did not know how to dispel other than with the numbing effects of copious booze He does not seem to have drowned himself in drink in order to create and write, but to self medicate a deep pain Poe was a very romantic man His weakness for beauty and his romantic heart were what haunted his soul He was very intimate with darkness, the moon, the blackness of his personal sense of loss, and a profound, tormenting grief This theme of love sadly lost is woven throughout a good many of the poems in this collection Even his best known poems such as The Raven are suffused with his sorrow and sense of his own life as accursed His very portrait on the front of this collection is very telling if one but covers his forehead and chin and looks at his eyes A few of the poems are upbeat and hopeful, but even in these he seems to be celebrating a joy that was much too ephemeral to allow him much genuine solace His poetry is rarely obscure and difficult to read, unlike that of some poets who just leave me shaking my head in bewilderment as to the meaning As a whole, this book is one very clear, soul rattling shriek back at life, the life of a very talented man unable to wrestle himself from his aching sorrow I recommend you read this if you think he was just a dark, trippy writer of stories about a pit and pendulum, a tell tale heart, a black cat in his poetry he reveals the sad, all too human man he was beyond the dark tales and creepy shadows his pen took us to He consoled himself with that most human of visions that his lost love one was in paradise, a paradise he was unable to even approach in his all too short life.

    It took me awhile to finish this poetry book like 3 months yes three months Not because it s bad, nope I found myself drowned with work and the desire to read such a classic almost evaporated, but I was really patient and determined to resume reading these poems.I found many poems beautifully done and yes I found one to be a favorite, too.I struggled a bit with some poems, but I survived, at last.I relish Edgar Allan Poe s writing and I can t contain myself of buying anything for him, so this can tell you something I would definitely go back and reread these poems once again

  9. Jelena Milenković says:

    Perhaps the most appealing poems to be read out loud.Some I like than others.Some I struggled to understand.Some needed my concentration and devotion to be felt.All in all, an enjoyable collection, if Poe can be ever called enjoyable.
