“Ulalume” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

It is about a man who wanders unconsciously to his lover’s tomb, and it is noted for its Gothic imagery and hypnotic rhythm. In “Ulalume” the narrator, with the nighttime stars as his guide, wanders through an eerie woodland.

So this poem for the most part focuses on the narrator’s loss of his beloved. Which Edgar Allan Poe knows a lots about because he have written multiple poems and stories on this topic.

This one I need to say is a melodic poem which of course not everyone will like. This poem almost reads as a perfect song with even better theme to it. But I personally don’t am a fan of.

This one is another quick and short poem as you can expect from Edgar Allan Poe.

This poem sort of gives you a Greek and Roman mythology vibe while reading it which I personally liked a lot.

For the most part the writing style is pretty decent but still Edgar Allan Poe was able to do much better than this.

I give this poem 1 / 5
