The speaker of this poem asks the addressee, “Thou wouldst be loved?” and suggest she stay on her current path to achieve that goal.
So another not so good poem written by Edgar Allan Poe. I read a lots of poems and tales written Edgar Allan Poe, and I know that he was able to do much better than this one.
The writing is good as you can expect from Edgar Allan Poe.
However I need to give this poem points for being short and pretty enough poem, which makes this poem to a worth read. But not a must read.
The whole point of this story didn’t appeal to me as I was expecting.
I give this poem 1 / 5
