    Poe felt defeated in this life, and believed he could not rise above his own weaknesses. In THE RAVEN, Poe reveals all-the key is in the last line. Note: Poe's subconscious is in fact the true author of THE RAVEN.

    Eldorado It appears to me is a vain search for Utopia. The beauty and sadness lies in the poets song.We spend our whole life searching for what may very well be in front of us.Chivalrous and sad

    To Edgar - whom I love in verse
    Whose soul has met a desperate curse
    Never to know his life's own worth

    To Edgar - whom I've longed to meet
    Whose purpose left him incomplete
    Whose very hand spelled out defeat

    To Edgar - who has come to fame
    Yet while he walked - it was in shame
    A haunted life - but not in vain

    To Edgar - whose shadow falls on my floor
    Whose unseen hands tap on my door
    Whose pen shall move.... ah.... NEVERMORE

    I don't know if E.A.P. was a believer in Christ Jesus, but I am and when I read a lot of his poems I take them to be speaking of t power of God... Anyone else get what I'm saying? If you do have a good understanding of God try reading them from a Christ-like perspective... Let me know what you think, my e-mail is rachelhargraves@netzero.com, I'm rally interested in hearing what others have to say about this :)

    This is one of my favorite poems of all time too! I'm sure it's about his wife (Virginia Clemm, his first cousin) who he married when he was 27 and she was 13. They lived together with her mother, brother and... I forget who... from the time she was 7 too so I'm sure they must have had a crush on each other long before they were married. History says they adored each other. So apparently, she was literally a child when they fell in love and he was a child at heart. The 'Kingdom by the Sea' was Baltimore. He wasted away and died 2 years after she did.

    You all are talking bout edgar allan poe. Some good and some bad. Yes in peoples eyes some poems is good and some are bad and even depressing. But no matter what kind of comment you make just remember this. Mr. Poe is and always will be a legend. He is a good poet. Everyone knows he is. He made a name for him self. He followed his dream and it payed off in the end. and he made alot of money with his poetry. So befor you bring the man down just listen and dont judge a book by its cover.
    Joe
    thank you

Best Poem of Edgar Allan Poe

Annabel Lee

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this...

To M.L.S.

Of all who hail thy presence as the morning-
Of all to whom thine absence is the night-
The blotting utterly from out high heaven
The sacred sun- of all who, weeping, bless thee
Hourly for hope- for life- ah! above all,
For the resurrection of deep-buried faith
In Truth- in Virtue- in Humanity-
Of all who, on Despair's unhallowed bed
Lying down to die, have suddenly arisen
