The Raven and Other Favorite Poems – Summary

The quote is from one of the poems in this book of poems. Here is the book summary:

“With me poetry has been not a purpose, but a passion.”-Edgar Allan Poe.

Containing such famous works as “The Raven”, “Lenore”, “Annabel Lee”, and “To Helen”, this complete collection of poetry by Edgar Allan Poe encapsulates the career of one of the best-known and most read American writers. Laden with tones of loneliness, melancholy and despair, the poetry contained in this volume exerted great influence on the American Romantic and the French Symbolist Movements of the nineteenth century. Today, Poe’s poetry is appreciated for its literary genius, not only because of his command of language, rhythms and dramatic imagery, but also because of its emotional insight into a beautiful and tormented mind. His propensity towards the mysterious and the macabre, as well as an ardent preoccupation with death, has led centuries of scholars and readers to enjoy these poems of love, death, and loneliness.
