    So very Gothic and so very Edgar Allan Poe. Although not a poem I am drawn to, he describes his childhood traumas and anguish in a very powerful way that builds recognition and empathy in the reader. (Report) Reply

    No demon was ever in my view, nor did I remain with 'that aloneness feeling for more than a season of my life. I did identify with this poem 'to a point', but by the grace of God, I overcame whatever silenced and rendered me lonely for the first several years of my life. I am no longer lonely and have an energetic and happy life. (Report) Reply

    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
