Edgar Allan Poe's Complete Poetical Works
This treasure book collects all of Poe's poetry in a single volume, some of the most evocative poetry in the English language.
"All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream."
The Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe will give you a fascinating glimpse into his tragic life. The majority of his poems are interpreted autobiographically: his achievements, his beloved wives, his losses, and ultimately, his unbecoming.
Reviewing a fictional collection of poems that were inspired by Mr. Poe's life was a bit of a daunting task--seriously, how does one successfully go about reviewing the deepest and darkest moments of s ...more
Out—out are the lights—out all!
And, over each quivering form,
The curtain, a funeral pall,
Comes down with the rush of a storm,
While the angels, all pallid and wan,
Uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy, “Man,”
And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.
But even I have to say that there are some of his poem that I do not particularly like. Such as Al Aaraaf and The Bells.
However, my all-time favourite remains unchan ...more
Sonhei com o prazer de outrora...
Mas um sonho desperto, pela aurora,
Deixou-me o coração deserto.
Que faz senão sonhar sempre acordado
Aquele que olha de soslaio
As coisas em redor, e com um raio
Apontado para o passado?
Aquele sonho santo... visionário,
Enquanto o mundo escarnecia,
Me acalentou, tal chama que irradia
Guiando uma alma solitária.
E embora aquela luz, na tempestade
E breu, tremesse lá distante...
Que mais podia haver de tão brilhante
No astro claro da ...more
Some I like more than others.
Some I struggled to understand.
Some needed my concentration and devotion to be felt.
All in all, an enjoyable collection, if Poe can be ever called enjoyable.
“I saw no heaven — but in her eyes.”
Let me just say that I adore Poe and his work. I find his stories and poems fascinating. I did not enjoy some of these poems though. The ones I loved I really did adore. This edition includes all 48 of his poems!!
The Happiest Day, the Happiest Hour.
The City in the Sea
The One in Paradise
Sonnet- To Science
Not because it's bad, nope!
I found myself drowned with work and the desire to read such a classic almost evaporated, but I was really patient and determined to resume reading these poems.
I found many poems beautifully done and yes I found one to be a favorite, too.
I struggled a bit with some poems, but I survived, at last.
I relish Edgar Allan Poe's writing and I can't contain myself of buying anything for him, so ...more
Kapak tasarımı (sert kapak, çarpıcı font ve renkler): Şahane
Kağıt: (Saman, sayfalar büyük, okuması zevkli): Şahane
İçerik: Hikayelerini daha çok sevsem de şiirlerini de seviyorum, Poe sonuçta!: Güzel.
Çeviri: Kötü. Maalesef.
Şiir çevirmek başka bir şey işte, içine ruh katmadan olmuyor bu iş, metin çevirmeye benzemiyor. Yani bir dili bilmek o dile ait şiirleri çevirmek için yeterli değil. Kelimelerle oynamak, farklı söylenişlerini bulmak, Türkçe'nin içine güzelce serpiştirmek gerekiyor bazen. Ben O ...more
BY EDGAR ALLAN POE
From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were—I have not seen
As others saw—I could not bring
My passions from a common spring—
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow—I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone—
And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone—
Then—in my childhood—in the dawn
Of a most stormy life— ...more
All of Poe's poem have an absorbing quality, but somehow the tale is always the same which might be the man's worst nightmare...feeling of being without a woman. Poe's poem reflect some of the pangs of his personal life, and the biggest grief for Poe was always the loss of his wife. Th ...more
God, how I love the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. It has some weird almost musical elements to it, rhytm, that cannot be found in most of modern poems... Also, It reeks of melancholy, which I love.
There is nothing like Edgar Allan Poe. I wish I could meet him. 5/5
Side note: Funny story, first time I have heard of the Raven was ...more
The book of poetry was divided into seven sections. These are: Poems of Later Life, Poems of Manhood, Scenes from 'Politian,' Poems of Youth, Doubtful Poems, Prose Poems, and Essays. The section titles explain themselves. My favorite poems were the doubtful poems. They seem very melancholy and make m ...more

Leaving aside his tour de force- The Raven (which doubtless has a well-deserved fame, albeit, in spite of its spell-binding cadence not devoid of weaknesses either, that is to say sporadic losses of momentum), and a couple of other poems, which are in one way or another intriguing or curious and stand out from the rest of the tedious bunch (Alone, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, The Bells etc.), Poe's poetry is, making no bones abou ...more
And mid-time of night;
And stars, in their orbits,
Shone pale, thro' the light
Of the brighter, cold moon,
'Mid planets her slaves,
Herself in the Heavens,
Her beam on the waves.
I gazed awhile
On her cold smile;
Too cold–too cold for me-
There pass'd, as a shroud,
A fleecy cloud,
And I turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star,
In thy glory afar,
And dearer thy beam shall be;
For joy to my heart
Is the proud part
Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
And more I admire
Thy distant fire,
Than that colder, lowly light.”
Roaming the forest, and the wild;
My breast her shield in wintry weather -
And, when the friendly sunshine smil'd,
And she would mark the opening skies,
I saw no Heaven - but in her eyes.”
