“To Helen” is the first of two poems to carry that name written by Edgar Allan Poe. The 15-line poem was written in honor of Jane Stanard, the mother of a childhood friend.
This one was pretty basic poem from Edgar Allan Poe which wasn’t that great as some other poems and short stories written by Edgar Allan Poe.
This poem however needs to get points for the part of being sort of oozed with the dark, moody melancholy and gothic vibe to it.
This poem feels also like it is sort of related to Greece and Rome.
The main problem with this poem is that it is stereotypical “love” poem which I am not a fan of. I would rather watch Twilight on repeat for a week than read a stereotypical “love” poetry. And Twilight in my opinion is one of the worst movies ever created.
I give this poem 1 / 5
