    This poem is widely regarded as being his most revealing piece written when he was all of nineteen. Ironically this brilliant verse proves those of us who feel so keenly are not alone. (Report) Reply

    I just love when a poem send shivers down my spine.
    That's what I think poetry is: make you feel what the poet was feeling when he wrote. (Report) Reply

    I've kept trying to find a Poe poem that I could genuinely say I liked. This almost makes it. This time his bouncy rhythms and punchy rhymes are tempered by enjambment. If one reads this aloud - as sentences, not as lines - then the sounds are subtler and the rhymes are subjugated to sense. The theme, it seems to me, is the despondency of the child who is a loner, an outsider in his family/school/community, alienated from his peers. I had similar childhood experiences. Fortunately - providentially I am brought to say -, I found friends who helped me and mentors who guided me, so that I escaped the poet's most stormy life. I am thankful to my God. (Report) Reply

    The theme, to me, is less about a child who was excluded from normal child festivities and more about about a child who was inverted and could not enjoy normal in any form.

    Hauntingly conveyed. Many of us poets and writers deeply comprehend Alone. Thank goodness for poetry and literature, to give us a realm in which we can feel connected. (Report) Reply
