Analysis and comments on Israfel by Edgar Allan Poe

Comment 5 of 5, added on June 26th, 2009 at 12:20 PM.

Is it correct that "Poe" connotes in his poem to change his place with
Israfel?if so, Allan Poe has really undergone tough experiences during his
life-time. accordingly, he seems he has been bored from the new
generation(our generation)so he wants some change which is, in his opinion,
replacing Israfel so as to see the beautiful women(old generation)thinking
that Israfel is his solution to reach his dream.

Israfel,angel of the fiery sword,Ignis Dei! I think Poe plays with the
possibility of changing dwelling places,could any one of us in Heaven do
things as good as an Angel of God?

i know that the angel israfel well blow the trumpet on judgement day.the
first blow of his trumpet will shater the world and the second will awaken
the dead and summon them to judgement.i know this idea from the holy quran.

I think that the angel Israfel is mentioned in the holy Quran, and may be
more sacred to the muslim faith.
