"Spirits Of The Dead"
Explication by Justin Waddell
"Spirits Of The Dead" is a original Edgar Allen Poe poem. This poem is a narrative and appears to tell a story of a depressed man or dark soul who is suffering with the thoughts of death and things that relate to it. In the first 3 stanzas the speaker tells a story of a man deep in his thoughts being disturbed by dark spirits. In the last two stanzas the man whom the speaker is talking about is standing by a hill with no light but only darkness while multiple thoughts run through his head while all is silent, not even a gust of wind.
