    ...........honestly and seriously and with all due respect, on this complete list of top 500 poems of Poemhunter this poem should be listed as number 1....I'm certain Poe invested a great deal of time into this beautiful narrative poem...and I'm also certain this poem would be more challenging, than any other poem listed...honestly, who can write a poem such as this, anyone? ★ (Report) Reply
