“The City in the Sea” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

The poem takes the reader through Death’s city. He rules this place from a throne and towers over it “gigantically”. The city is lit by nothing but the light from the sea.

So another pretty good poem from no other than Edgar Allan Poe.

The writing style is amazing as you can from Edgar Allan Poe. 

In this poem Edgar Allan Poe gives an elaborately grim picture by only using his words and writing style which is depicting a sinister atmospheric.

This poem needs to get points for being vivid and full of life and meaning.

This poem is one of very few poems which you can re-read dozen times without being bored of it.

This poem isn’t scary but it sort of gives you a chill. 

This poem much be one of Edgar Allan Poe’s much  dark and gloomy gothic poems.

I give this poem 3 / 5
