I really liked this poem because we know that edgar allan poe really
suffers a lot in his life, just as he says he weeps and weeps, not
understanding with has all his life ruined.

i'm doing a report on dis poem n its confusing me...to me this poem is
about edgar allen poe saying good bye to a loved one. den he is
questioning/wondering if life is\ just a dream that comes and goes...next
he goes on about how he is surrounded by louds sounds and how he trys to
hold on to he's loved ones as well as he can..but still they leave.. so he
is standing there crying and crying wanting them to come bac.. wut i dont
get it the line "a dream within a dream"

i REALLY like this poem,it reaches out to me ALL the way.its well thought
out as in the fact that it can reach to ,lost lovers,and to life slipping
away.i think that he was writeing this in a time of grayness in his life.

I think everyone has his first love or first dream,but it didn't come to
you as expect.so we might sign of it and look for a new one.i think feeling
bad of loss means you can take good care of what you own and what you will
own.i don't think everything you want you can grasp,so treasure the things
you have,and you are rich.
