    What is really interesting is that Edgar wasn't really a drunkard. It was a myth perpetuated by his rival journalists. They tried to discredit him because of their jealousy over his sharp wit, amazing writing ability and quick rise in journalistic importance during his time. Plus he was quite charming with the ladies and some of those ladies happen to be the other writers wives.

    'A demon in my view'
    This poem is beautiful, and haunting. Surely Poe's feelings of indifference were not so severe that 'all (he) loved, (he) loved alone'?
    I read this poem at my high school graduation to a great reception. Apparently more people comprehend this lonliness than I thought.

    I'm getting
    'and all i loved, i loved alone'
    tatoo'd on me.
    I have always find an intrest and love that has allured me to edgar<3

    No writer such as this or any other yet to come should die in uncommon squalor stripped of ink and paper for lack of funds.

    Can't help but Cry when Reading it
    The words..
    The lines...
    The Emotions...

    love this poem as it expresses my feelings this very moment. brilliant piece from Poe once again as he always amazes me with his words, his poems, and his emotions. I applaud his works as it comes so effortlessly from his mind to his pen to the poem he produced. Bravo Poe!

    This is one of my favorite poems by Poe. It is so dark but written amazingly; the rhyming seems effortless.
