Lianna is absolutely correct. Following up on Edgar Allan Poe's thesis,
how can anyone any longer wax poetic about Selene when Apollo 11 showed her
to be a mere huge, lifeless lump of rock enslaved to the "dull reality" of
the Force of Gravity?

Edgar is saying in this peom that science is taking the mystery and beauty
of out life. He doesn't know how these scientists could be loved or
considered wise when they ruin everything for poets and writers. He uses
classical allusions to mythology. Edgar is not referring to Princess Diana
in this peom... he is using an allusion to Diana in mythology and how she
is no longer riding her chariot because scientist have proven that wrong
and ripped her out, just like the mermaids of the ocean. Edgar is trying to
say how could anyone think science is wonderful when it takes all the
beauty and imagination out of the world.

Lianna from United States
