Edgar Allan Poe – On The Darker Side of Poetry

Edgar Allan Poe has always been seen as the weird and dark one in the poetry department. Although he has gloomy metaphors and musky themes, Edgar Allan Poe made a mark on the world for the allegorical meaning of his poetry.

Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, editor, and literary critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre.

Here are some quotes from this notable author;

“The true genius shudders at incompleteness — imperfection — and usually prefers silence to saying the something which is not everything that should be said.”
― Edgar Allan PoeMarginalia

“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.”
― Edgar Allan PoeComplete Tales and Poems

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
― Edgar Allan Poe

The theme should never be a hindrance in writing. People can call you names and say anything but the truth of the matter is – the pen is mightier than the mouths of those who cannot express through writing. The true essence of a certain piece of literature or letter comes from what the writer manifests through his organized yet jumbled thoughts that only appear on paper.
