I have a rare prayer for the irrevocable fame and study of this man. Whose forceful ability to survive his tortured life,rose out his need to still the provocations of the dagger voices.By outsmarting their dire tiresome cruelties with the one care taken for coping...
For one thing, we share the same birthday. If it weren't for Poe who knows how the detective story genre might have developed? Poe is noted as the first author to have a detective story published (The Tell-Tale Heart).
Also, I love his other works - the first master of the...
Hands down one of the greatest poets that ever lived.
Hez help'd me through some rough times.
Just a quick share of my favorite poem from him.
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I...
I have received a notification that I Like Edgar Allen Poe 9 minutes ago.
That was not my premise or prayer.
Just want to say...The power and impact of his works as great writing
.I do not minimize
I pray for a healing (if ever one is needed) that his gripping works of...
The first time I read poe was when i was 12. I had to choose a book to read off of a list for school and idk why the summary attracted me to his stories so i made everyone in my group pick a book of some of his stories lol and I immediately fell in love with his writing. The...
Ok so about a week ago a few of my friends cornered me, you see we had all been trying out new hair colors for a while trying to find one we liked. Unfortunately this meant that we all suffered a similar fate- dry hair that was a bit damaged and the colors washed out too quickly...
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee--
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom...
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
One of my favorite progressive rock albums is "Tales of Mystery and Imagination Edgar Allan Poe" by The Alan Parsons Project, which was originally released in 1976 and remastered in 1987. It's well worth listening to if you're an Edgar Allan Poe fan, or even if you're not. Here...
Love Edgar Alan Poe, I must say. So morbid and twisted right up my alley. His writings remind me alot of my own, although regrettably, the novel I'm currently working on is nowhere near his twisted greatness. But yes, I love his style. I love the morbid, twisted, deliciousness...
AND SO STARTS ( IN MY OPINION ) ONE OF THE GREATEST POEMS FROM A TORTURED , ARTISTIC MAN
The Raven is dark , haunting and mysterious .
And like all his other works , you get a glimpse into madness
and are left to wonder what is reality , and what is the...
Once in the 11th grade I did a report on him. Then I realised..he's not a weird'o with creepy poems. He's a man who eventually lost every woman he loved. I can't imagine everybody I possibly love, end up dying-as if I was a curse....
