I am a person that loves science and poetry, I also believe that Edger
Allen Poe was suggesting that science is or can begin as a poem. Think
about it science is a hipothetical situation the only diffrence is that it
is later disproven or prooved true, insted of letting others like ourself
put our own meanings behind things. then I also agree with Arch

isn't the poem referring to science disproving myths and taking out the
romanticism in life views? Deeper still, since myth permeates much of who
we are as people? No longer gods and godesses, nymphs and centaurs,
Diana's or Zeus's and Neptunes, we are instead "ugly bags of salty water."
Love is reduced to hormones by science--and Poe is asking how can he, as a
poet, can love science and "deem them wise." Maybe he found the world a
lesser kind of place without the old gods.
