I am not qualified to judge genius. He loved women ( a women ) very much.
But he was not comfortable with women. It is because he loved and adored
them that the result was always tragic. The man was a genius out of his
element. Genuises are especially susceptible to women because they worship
the ideal. You can feel the love and the heartbreak in Poe's life, which is
the work he has teased and challenged and captivated us with. Lenore -
Forever More.

This is a great poem. Here he's saying that everyone loved her for her
possessions and wealth while he loved her for her beauty and personality.
They wanted her dead and now she is. The name Lenore appears occassionally
throughout Poe's poems. The Raven was the last one it appeared in, as Poe
died soon after it's relase to the papers. You can't dislike him for
repeating the name, you have to understand he's in great distress and
grief. Not to mention depression. He was married once, and after his wife
died, he fell into great sadness and sorrow. From which his works emerge.
He's not making this stuff up. It's coming from experience. So you really
have to understand what you're reading when you're reading his works. Put
yourself in his shoes, feel what he feels. You'll come to understand it
alot better and more fully.
