According to today’s categorisation the poem written by Edgar Allan Poe entitled “The Raven” is a gothic novel. This poem is indeed more like a short story. Let’s dive into this dark poem where a raven has a conversation with a man, about his lost love.
Dark Romanticism. That is a good description of the category in which the work Edgar Allan Poe (1809 – 1849) belongs. “The valley of unrest” is a poem with one stanza, that is about a place where you normally wouldn’t find bustle or noise (unrest): a cemetery.
A magical place or landscape, where fairies live. With a sense of drama. That is the setting that Edgar Allan Poe offered in the poem “Fairy-land.”
Never for a moment believe that all the poetry that Edgar Allan Poe left us is about mystery or mystical occurrences. The poem “Romance” proofs that Poe was a versatile writer. But altogether, it’s still Poe and there is a twist to this poem.
