The poem is about Edgar Allan Poe and his hardships in his life currently. It was written in a time when he had a gambling and drinking problem at the military academy in the United States.
So another poem I didn’t really enjoy. But it was again better than other poems and stories from Edgar Allan Poe which was review on this blog in the past.
For me this poem was for the most part a way for Edgar Allan Poe to show off his prose without any real point to it.
The writing style was decent and the gothic and dark part was present in this poem. Which I’m very thankful for.
I give this poem 2 / 5
