“For Annie” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

This one describes the role of “Annie” or Nancy Heywood in the poet’s life when he was struggling with the fever called “Living”. This long poem written in the praise of “Annie” presents how the poet felt before his recovery from his mental agony.

For this one I really had mixed feelings about this one but also to the entire poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. 

I enjoyed read this poem but it wasn’t that good as you might expect. 

However I need to give this poem points for pulling you into the poem and leaving it lingering in your mind once you finished. 

This one is a perplexing love poem that sort of makes you think. 

The writing style was pretty decent but as someone who have read almost every short story and poem by Edgar Allan Poe I need to say that he was able to do a better job.

But as someone who calls himself “Edgar Allan Poe fan” it is a must read as any other poem and short story.

I give this poem 2 / 5
