This poem is about finding love and how Edgar Allan Poe thinks that he didn’t have the time to care for romance or love. He thinks that it might even be a bad thing if he did, but he couldn’t stop his heart if it trembled.
I need to be honest with you and say that this one is actually one of the few poems that I found enjoying while reading.
This poem is a nice easy and quick read, which is definitely worth reading. But it is not in the classic Edgar Allan Poe style as you might expect.
However this poem isn’t bad nor good. It’s for the most part a decent poem.
The easiest way to explain this poem is that it basically an ode to romance in a personified form with a little gothic vibe to it.
The writing style is pretty good, but as a die hard Edgar Allan Poe fan I know that he was able to do much better than what he did in this poem.
However in this poem Edgar Allan Poe is able to contemplate the contrast between the world as perceived in his childhood to the world as viewed “of late” in his adulthood.
I give this poem 1 / 5
