It's the end of an era.


I've had this book on my currently-reading shelf since October 25, 2008. I've been "currently reading" this book longer than two of my children have existed.

I have some rules when it comes to goodreads - if I don't finish a book, I don't review it. I often see one-star reviews that say, "Uggg... I couldn't make it through the first paragraph." I think that means the reviewer is giving the first paragraph one star... not the entire book.

If I stop reading a book, I take it o

I want to be Honest as I can about Poetry I enjoy them but I and like a lot of readers out there I dont read enough of them the only Poem I know about Edgar Allan Poe is his creepy Poem the Raven as that is the Poem most used and qouted and I enjoyed rereading it. I must confess I struggle in reading and understanding poetry at the best of times and I thought that this collection of Poems were pretty dark and creepy I wouldnt recomend to start with this collection if you are starting out as his ...more

I tried listening to an Audible download of an Edgar Allan Poe poetry collection several years ago and almost completely failed to get into his writing. When this similar poetry collection was offered as the free daily ForgottenBooks download in September, I thought I should give Poe another chance. His work is so popular worldwide that there must be some essence I had missed.

I am pleased that I did get on better with written Poe poetry than spoken. Being able to revisit lines and ideas definite

Molt bona edició ja que ens exposa el poema en idioma original a la plana esquerra i la traducció a la derta. Hi ha rimes i aritmètiques molt difícls d'aconseguir en traduccions, inclús impossibles segons explica Carlos Obligado traductor dels poemes. En aquest llibre a més podem trobar anàlisis i demés explicacions de com l'autor va desenvolupar el poema i/o moment històric. "The Raven" és el més famós del poeta americà, i deu ser perquè l'entramat de rimes i armònics que amaga el poema fa que ...more

Muchos poemas no los entendí, pero otros son increíbles...

It's sad, it's macabre, it's tragic, it's morosely romantic, it's Poe.

This was a re-read for me of an illustrated version of the author's poetry works, which contain two of my favorite all-time poems, The Raven and especially Alone. How do you critique poetry? I dunno. It's not my favored form of communication, but when I like it, I really like it. And I do I like Poe's stuff, although I'm not always in the mood for it, especially the overly dramatic, romanticized parts. Still, I recommend reading at least a few of his poems if you've never done so.

I believe my extent of reading Poe, was required reading in college English. I loved many of the poems in this collection, including but not limited to The Raven & The Village Street.
