“Israfel” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

This poem is about the angel Israfel who is mentioned in the Qua’rn as having the sweetest voice of all God’s creatures. Edgar Allan Poe ends this poem by stating if he and the angel switched places, he would be the one with the sweetest voice and Israfel wouldn’t sing as well.

This poem is far from a good poem but it also is not a super bad poem. I personally would call it a decent poem, but I know that Edgar Allan Poe was able to do a much better work than this one.

This poem is quick and easy to read. It also involves some great lines in it but that isn’t enough to make this poem to a good poem.

I would say that this poem is worth reading, but it is far away from a must read if you are interested in reading some Edgar Allan Poe if you haven’t so far.

This poem is for the most part written about the angel from the Koran person named Israfel. 

The writing style is far from great, it’s not even okay. Which is surprising because we are talking about something which was written by Edgar Allan Poe.

I give this poem 1 / 5
