This is a masterpiece. Simply the internal rhymes are enough to make it #1.
In my opinion, Edgar Allan Poe was the best poet ever and The Raven is one of his best works. I also really love his poem Annabelle Lee. That one is beautiful. - KilljoyWithAPen
I wish that a form of audio recording was available in Poe's time. His recital of The Raven was claimed to have been brilliant.
Pretty good poem, with a little horror in it, just one of Poe's great works.V 1 Comment
My second choice today: hard to resist. Good list. - Billyv
Great poem! I also enjoy the song based on this poem, by Iron Maiden.
Most beautiful poem I've ever read.
"You are not alone! We are here for you! We're the spirits of the children killed by robotic men like you! Show us all your strength, and your bravery, and save our people from living life in slavery! "
Elliot's poety, whilst slightly confusing (and very ambiguous) is nonetheless phenomenal. His use of melodies, music and strangeness in this poem make it an absolute masterpiece. Sensational poet that could encapsulate an entire being into one poem, which Eliot achieved with such finesse with Prufrock. Wonderful poem. - Pb206
