“The Power of Words” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

This poem focuses on someone who’s exhausted after a long day’s work in an apple orchard. Drifting between wakefulness and sleep, the poem’s speaker replays the day’s events while feeling anxious about all the apples left unpicked.

So today we are talking about Edgar Allan Poe and one of his short stories.This short story is only 2 pages long. 

It didn’t quit speak to me but I had fun time reading this short story. 

This short story needs to get some extra points for having some biblical reference to God creating the universe. Im very far from being a religious person but I appreciate references to history and what humans have created. 

This short story also has another reference to religion which is God needed to use “algebraic analysis” to create the universe and the mathematicians in this poem might be interested in the logical paradox that apparently keeps God happy according to Edgar Allan Poe. 

The writing style was pretty okay, but Edgar Allan Poe was Abe to write better poems and short stories than this one.

This poem offers us a very lovely debate about the spiritual philosophy and how it might relate to the inner workings of the world. Which this poem need to get extra points for.

However I had hard time connecting with this story which translates into a low rating with me.

There isn’t a lots of action in this one which may lead some people to not liking it. But I think that many if you will like it. 

I give this poem 1 / 5
