The story is told by an anonymous narrator, who chances upon a “profusely verdured” islet and fancies that a fairy is present on the island.
This was another pretty decent and lovely story from none other than Edgar Allan Poe.
But as someone who have read almost every poem and story from Edgar Allan Poe I need to say that he was able to do a much better work than he did on this one. But it also could be me being to harsh to this short story.
The writing style has some beautiful moments but for the most part the writing style is pretty boring and uninteresting.
However the take which Edgar Allan Poe is taking on the the fair folk is very enjoyable and interesting. But he didn’t use the full potential of this story which it could very easily have.
The first part of this short story is more or less a dull and not what Ive expected but it sort of gets better when the ending comes closer and closer. And the imagery at the end which Edgar Allan Poe is giving us was beautiful.
This one didn’t quite work for me. I really wanted to like it but there are a lots of short stories and poems from Edgar Allan Poe which simply doesn’t work for me for some reason.
I give this poem 1 / 5
