The Maven Once, in summer, weary, I wanted to discuss a theory, And so walked up to the classroom of my teacher, Lenore. All his stories make me weary, And my theory is that he was morbid to the core. Yes, I think Poe was a man morbid to the core!
How could you ask for more? How could a little, stupid high school student ask for more? His stories are all the same, they all concern the insane And the bane of life and love—I mean, what a chore! Getting through a single story is a great big chore! And with a roar, she attacked, and I hastily went back And with a whoosh and with a whack I quickly reached the door.
Yes—thank God! But, one day, when in my study, I heard something rather funny, Something funny coming suddenly from my chamber door. I opened it and, with a start, I felt a dagger in my heart, Which laid me down, inert, upon my chamber floor. Over me stood the brooding figure of Lenore. View all 6 comments.

Feb 06, Shelby rated it it was amazing. This has taken me years to finish. I found Poe to be a little to intense to read for weeks at a time. I started in in High School, forgot it for the first three years of College, and now I'm done.
One thing that I loved about Poe was the intensity and immersion he creates. I've never read a book or story before where I almost dreaded turning the page because I was afraid.
However, last story of this book was what nearly stopped me from finishing. The story was over 20 chapters long, and you would This has taken me years to finish.
The story was over 20 chapters long, and you would read page after page of how boats work and where they were in the ocean, and then suddenly something dreadful would happen with no foreshadowing or warning.
Still, I especially enjoyed the poetry, and may look it over again before I pack this away onto my shelves. Oct 16, Trish rated it liked it Shelves: classics. He is October personified. Jan 09, Stephanie rated it really liked it Shelves: I KNOW.
I decided to write notes and give stars to each and every poem and story contained within this book. Those will be typed up later. It's later. Literally minutes later. That obviously didn't work so well as I completely abandoned Edgar Allan Poe to finish the story of the Baudelaires.
Yeah, if I can help it, I prefer to read one book at a time. I don't know what that says about me. That I can't split my focus? I'm glad I took notes. I'm bad at remembering things, even if I did focus on it. That to me is scary. I'm sure I liked a lot of passages and quotes and characters that I have no idea I like. Also, since it's been a long time, maybe my thoughts changed, surely my thoughts changed on every poem and story contained within this collections.
Okay, let me just get on with it. This is going to be quite long. Whatever is in quotes are my thoughts on that day that I read whatever I read. The rest are any comments now. I love how everyone sees something different in whatever they read. Still, two stars. Another quick search refreshed my memory about science v. The Enlightenment v.
That I remember learning about in high school. And I've also read about a year ago Robert K. Massie's Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman , and of course that was filled with Enlightenment principles which I kind of forgot about quick search: ah, yes, the movement away from the spiritual and towards reason, advances in mathematics and science, democracy, individualism, in-born rights, s, Marie Antoinette, Catherine the Great, Voltaire, deism, separation of power, Johannes Kepler, astronomy - Yeah, that Age was cool.
And the Romantic?? Of which I know less about?? Quick search: reason can not explain everything, Victor Hugo oh shit, the coolness of the Enlightenment may have lost me , Frankenstein I have to reread that one , questions of absolute good and absolute evil, okay - got it. So Poe wasn't really a fan of the Scientific Revolution? Oh Poe, the more we discover the more we can wonder!!
It means I liked this one and to pay attention. I also liked the last two stanzas. I like it. Quick search: Regrets. Read that someone read that Poe was arrogant and talking about himself. But, no!

Совершенно. Будет очень глупо, если вы этого не сделаете. На этот раз Стратмор позволил себе расхохотаться во весь голос.

Как они этого сразу не заметили. Северная Дакота - вовсе не отсылка к названию американского штата, это соль, которой он посыпал их раны. Он даже предупредил АНБ, подбросив ключ, что NDAKOTA - он. Это имя так просто превращается в Танкадо. И лучшие в мире специалисты-криптографы этого не поняли, прошли мимо, на что он и рассчитывал.
