Edgar Allan Poe
I chose this poem because it's different. not many people chose this. I like Edgar Allan Poe a lot. It's very mysterious.
- “mystic moon” line 2 (also alliteration) compares the moon to a mystic, or fortune teller.
- “Looking like Lethe,” in line 13 comparison to the lake to a river in Greek mythology.
I chose the Theme intentions because actions speak louder than words in The Sleeper.
- One of the piece I picked for imagery is "An opiate vapor, dewy, dim." I chose it because its describing a vapor as dewy and dim.
- The second piece I picked was "Far in the forest, dim and old." Its describing the forest.
Tone: Sad and Gloomy
Alliteration: "Steals drowsily and musically"
