The Complete Poetry by Edgar Allan PoeIm a way too big of a fan of Edgar Allan Poe to rate it differently.
Out—out are the lights—out all!
And, over each quivering form,
The curtain, a funeral pall,
Comes down with the rush of a storm,
While the angels, all pallid and wan,
Uprising, unveiling, affirm
That the play is the tragedy, “Man,”
And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.
But even I have to say that there are some of his poem that I do not particularly like, such as Al Aaraaf and The Bells.
However, my all-time favourite remains unchanged. You cannot do better than The Raven.
“Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil!—
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted—nevermore!

In his own work, he demonstrated a brilliant command of language and technique as well as an inspired and original imagination. At the time of his birth in , they were members of a repertory company in Boston. Before Poe was three years old both of his parents died, and he was raised in the home of John Allan, a prosperous exporter from Richmond, Virginia, who never legally adopted his foster son. As a boy, Poe attended the best schools available, and was admitted to the University of Virginia at Charlottesville in While there he distinguished himself academically but was forced to leave after less than a year because of bad debts and inadequate financial support from Allan. That same year Poe was honorably discharged from the army, having attained the rank of regimental sergeant major, and was then admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point. However, because Allan would neither provide his foster son with sufficient funds to maintain himself as a cadet nor give the consent necessary to resign from the Academy, Poe gained a dismissal by ignoring his duties and violating regulations.
