Description:

This paper takes a look at the elements of spiritualism and the supernatural found in two of Edgar Allen Poe's most famous poems, "The Raven" and "The Tell Tale Heart". The paper suggests that these poems are a reflection of the author's morbid preoccupation with sorrow and death and the dark side of the human spirit.

From the Paper:

"Poe scored an enormous success with "The Raven," and its reception has been compared to the success of some highly popular hit song of today. "everybody reads the Poem (sic) and praises it," said a review in New World; "justly, we think, for it seems to us full or originality and power." Although the work is recognized today for its craftsmanship, rhythms and lavish alliteration, some critics of the time thought the poem vulgar with a commonplace subject and an excess of "rhythmical tricks.""
