“Evening Star” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

In this poem, the narrator looks twoards the sky and sees coldness, except one “Proud Evening Star” which has a “distant fire” which the other stars lack. The lyric poem was influenced by Thomas Moore’s “While Gazing on the Moon’s Light”.

This one is very short and very easy to understand. And for the most part it is an enjoyable read.

This poem had some good lines but the lines which didn’t go so well with me takes the cake here.

This poem needs to get points for the gothic master turning his eyes onto stars and writes a poem about stars.

The writing style was pretty much the worst part about this poem because there times where i felt like the lines where put together randomly.

I give this poem 2 / 5
