    Other than at the very end, this could've been one of Poe's many Greek and Roman mythology poems, this time walking among the gods. However, upon a second reading I suppose the narrator is, except the gods lead him to the grave of a lost love on a dreary October night just like like when she died. Still, like Poe's other mythology poems, much of the words are dedicated to names I'm only vaguely familiar with, vocabulary I had to look up (not that I mind to a point), and so the poem just didn't read smoothly for me. The content isn't among my favorite of Poe's either.

    I know some people want to put this poem in the categories of "The Raven", "Annabel Lee" and "Lenore", but it's not even in their class.

    I think this is the first time that I have read this poem by Poe. If that is not the case, then it must have been unmemorable the first time around.I read this a couple of times, back to back and then went about my day, letting the poem swirl around in my brain for a bit, before coming back to read over it again.This reads like classic Poe to me. Lost love, death, etc. Not my favorite of his but worth the time spent reading it.
