Description:

The paper looks at the theme of death in the poetry of one of America's great storytellers and argues that his poetry was a means of exploring his own apparent fatalism. Furthermore, the paper argues that Poe uses poetic devices like apostrophe, rhyme scheme and graphic metaphors to express his own philosophical musings on death and his own desire for egress and transcendence. The paper demonstrates how the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe was the one means by which he could probe the dark recesses of his own psyche and articulate his own morbid sadness.
