Interesting poem, I enjoyed it - though it took me a while to understand it
fully. It speaks about a beautiful subject; lost love, and the
acknowledgement of having to face the truth.

I find it hard to believe that this is a poem since its like 2 pages. But i
find it interesting how he gives a lot of details when the raven "speaks"
to him and how he sees the raven's actions.

The way the speaker sets the mood in the begining is essential.Sorrow,loss,
obssesion. I like how he discribes how this little bird is breaking his
loneliness and gets so upset about it's word: Nevermore, and calls it a
lie. Very interesting.

It is not a very interesting poem according to me - however it is not
boring. One of the things I like is the main theme of the poem, which is
undying devotion. It seems as if he would never stop thinking about her.

I found this poem a bit too long. While the ideas behind it were
interesting I found that it's length made me feel tired of reading very
quickly. It was a tad too repetitive and even non sensical.

In my opinion, this poem is good. His style is something remarkable, and is
a trademark in each of his poems. His ways of writing poems are

Poe's poems are very creepy and exciting.

I'm tired of arguing with people about what they feel or think. Most of the
people in the world are narrow minded and have nothing to offer anyone.
People are self serving greedy fools. This is a poem. It is a gift to the
world. Either be grateful or shut up.

I think this poem is absolutely awesome. I like the gloomy atmosphere, and
the rythm is catching.
P.S. This homepage sucks because it deleted my friend's wonderful comment.
