Edgar Allan Poe Poems

Gelesen von Shurtagal

Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) is widely famed as one of the greatest writers of all time. He is best known for his works of horror, such as "The Tell Tale Heart." However, and this is less known, Poe also wrote many love poems. In this collection of forty-eight poems by Edgar Allan Poe we will go through a wide variety of themes, from horror and raw creepiness in "The Raven" to pure love in "A Valentine" to depression in "Alone." Throughout all of his poems Poe kept a very strong meter and rhyme scheme. This is most obvious in "The Bells." (Summary by Shurtagal) (1 hr 21 min)

This is not the narrator for Poe. It feels like I'm back in the eleventh grade with some pseudointellectual reading out of a textbook. The material is more powerful than his voice allows. It's like getting Justin Beiber when you want James Earl Jones.

hmmm....

I agree with the guy that didn't rate this but seeing as I have to I'll put a 1 1/2 because of the voice but for the poems itself I would give a 4 1/2. I love Poe and his poems and there are some I can listen to for hours on end and others once in a while. The reason I wanted to write this is because I was listening to my favorite poem (Annabel Lee) and the narrator's voice was killing my vibe!!! I don't think this narrator has the right voice for this. Their is depth and emotion in these poems but the person reading them sounds like of mix of unimpressed, distant, and slightly high.

SOME CAN READ POETRY! SOME CANNOT!

Poetry is more than a mass of words rrad with some attention to meter. It should not be read with grade school effort, and it certainly requires good diction. The continual dismissing of ending letters (especially "t") when going to words beginning with vowel sounds completely destroys any reading, but especially poetry. This reader would probably be ok for prose fiction, but not for poetry.

I loved the reading of the book. Yes, the reader sometimes stutters, but the voice and the manner of reading is perfect. Especially I fell in love with the reading of Raven. He has tragedy in his voice, which I have never found in other readers, but which is so essential for the poem.

not the Edgar Allan Poe i kno ((anh anh ahn ahn)) no no no no
