The GHOULs sit right in the middle of the poem, with a short (3 syllable
equivalent) pause afterwards, perhaps to strengthen dramatic effect (they
are corpse-eating, scary undead monsters after all), acting as a climax &
turning point (note the symmetric design of the lines & stanzas).
Learn german & start reading Arno Schmidt if you want to know more about
E.A.Poe. Seems like americans need Germans to explain the greatest writer
their country ever produced to them, hark, hark.

The entire poem has rithms I can quite fiugre out, only this line;
- By the dismal tarns and pools
- Where dwell the Ghouls,-

How does fit "Where dwell the Ghouls,-" in the rest of the poem? It's so
short and stops so abruptly... The only thing I can't quite get figured out

I absolutely loved this poem. Some of the vivid descriptions ("Mountains
toppling evermore / Into seas without a shore / Seas that restlessly
aspire, / surging, unto skies of fire") are amazing, and the delicious
darkness of the poem is incredible. I really like most of Poe's stuff in

This poem is absolutely TERRIFYING! Edgar Allen Poe writes scary stuff. Not
something you want to read before bedtime.
