“The Sleeper” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

The theme is transcendental love–that is, love for a woman so powerful that it extends into the afterlife in its concern for the well-being of the deceased woman’s soul.

So this one is another eerie and delightfully dark poem from Edgar Allan Poe. This poem is also mixed with a little bit of beauty. But still I once again were missing the gothic part in this poem.

The writing style wasn’t that great as in some other poems from Edgar Allan Poe. But I guess that it was for the most part pretty decent. 

There were a lots of times where I personally had a real hard time with trying to understand what was happening. 

This poem is far from Edgar Allan Poe best work but it is worth reading if you are a hardcore Edgar Allan Poe fan.

I give this poem 2 / 5
