Bone chilling and keep you up all night tales of the creepy

I would use this in English classes. I would want to show that not all form of loved poetry has to be all fluffy and lovely. You can show your dark side, embrace it and it can be cherished as well.
Students in this era are having to deal with a lot more then adults realize. If a teacher would offer a different venue for expression, one never knows what would save a life or spark a discussion of deeper topics. ( )

Poe, not only a noted author but also poet, is not only the author of The Raven - the quintessential American gothic poem, but also the author of numerous other poems worthy of recognition.

This book collects of Poe's poetry from "To Helen" and "Annabel Lee" to "Ulalume" and of course "The Raven". ( )

Some poems were extraordinary, but the majority of the poems were dull. ( )
