This is a very deep poem. I first heard it in a song by Wunderkammer that
I really liked. Normally, I don't like Poe poetry, but this poem is really
thought-provoking.

Jonathan Ross is dubbed "risque" by Ofcom but not in breach of rules over

(After doing an essay on transcendentalism) I kind of get the feeling that
this isn't so much about just mortality, as it is about reality itself.
Popular thinking at the time, at least among poets and such, was that we as
humans aren't really capable of perceiving "reality"... rather we each have
our own view of it, although no two people can have the same exact view of
any one thing. I think this poem is what happened when the beloved and
depressing Poe thought too much on that, and realized that maybe there
isn't even a reality... but either way, does it matter? The first stanza
is like his accepting the concept, but the second is like he's realizing
that its a little creepy in nature and leaves us without any substance or
anything solid or secure.
