“To Helen” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

This poem is about an allusion-rich poem that depicts the poet’s love for an older woman through the image of Helen of Troy. The speaker compares the mother of a close friend, Jane Stanard, to Helen throughout the three stanzas of ‘To Helen’.

This one again is another beautiful love poem from Edgar Allan Poe.

This one has oozed with some dark mixed with moody melancholy which in the end is what Edgar Allan Poe is famous for.

I need to say that in this one there are definite hints and sparks of hope that love can bring.

This poem is a quick and easy small poem. 

The writing style is amazing which is pretty much the only good thing about this poem in my opinion.

I give this poem 1 / 5
