Alone

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring

    Totally agree with Milica. A poem is how one expresses himself at the time he wrote it. Ergo, your statement was already telling the fact that this is a great poem.

  • Milica Franchi De Luri (3/9/2010 4:47:00 AM)

    I disagree with Justin and Rob V. This is beautiful poem that clearly explains Edgar's filing of not belonging and loneliness

  • Valya Lio (2/25/2010 2:21:00 PM)

    LOVE THIS POEM...............(THANKZ MR.EDGAR.ALLAN.POE.)

    I agree with Justin: this is probably Poe's worst poem, likely why he never published it.

    It was written when he was a teenage orphan, living with a foster-father who didn't care much for him. Everyone in their mid-teens feels this way to the point of being cliche. Does that make them all 'disturbed'? Definitely read 'The Conqueror Worm.' Then read 'Epigram for Wall Street.' Then tell me you know all about Poe's writing.

    The title kind of gives the wrong impression. Though it does fit in some places. Sometimes that's how I feel. 'Even if someone is surrounded by people, they are alone.' is one of my favorite quotes.

  • Justin Unanue (1/5/2010 8:47:00 PM)

    I love Edgar Allan Poe, but this is one of his worst poems. If you want the Real Edgar Allan Poe, read The Conqueror Worm.

    I love Edgar Allan Poe, but this is one of his worst poems. If you want the Real Edgar Allan Poe, read The Conqueror Worm.

    wew!

    I Could feel his loneliness! : -(thanks for sharing your poem Mr. Poe.: -)

  • Andrew Burant (12/6/2009 4:42:00 PM)

    Poe is a bad poet, a poor critic, and a dreadful prose stylist in his celebrated tales. Also he is a self-pitying and metrically maladroit. His litany of 'I's and 'my's is pathetic in the content of torrent and fountain, cliff and mountain, rolling sun and flying lightning, thunder and storm and cloud. By the time Poe sees a demon in the cloud, the reader is wearied.
