A Tribute Blog - On The Magnificent Poet, Edgar Allan Poe

A Tribute Blog - On The Magnificent Poet,

Edgar Allan Poe- a name that no credible

top ten list of history's  greatest  poets can omit.

One of my - recent- tribute poems - started in 1979-

finally finished on -  7/12/2021

 

The Bloodstone, The Raven And Master Poe

(I.)

The ancient stone, here Raven bled

Cursed and flew away alone

To follow the dark and make its night-bed

Unholy accursed path, bloody the stone

From the abyss, into light of the earth

With Fate and anger, its darkest of hands

A beast reborn - shadow of devil's worth

A repugnant new plague upon this land.

 

Woe! To the unsuspecting that are blind

Wading through life, unaware of the beast

A heart slayer, infester of the mind

Ravenous for innocence, its great feast

Invisible to most, a curse to few

Relentless in darkest of wicked guile

Ever seeking the cries of victims new

Witty its bold actions, patience its style.

 

For centuries it search to he then meet

And with the cleverness of its black wit

At his house uninvited take a seat

Torment nightly, drive insane- bit by bit

Blind to the ghastly creature was young Poe

He that life and love had been so tragic

Raven decided, put on a fine show

By showcasing its best evil magic.

 

First to wake its victim at midnight hour

An ungodly screech a soft tapping sound

From the walls, using its wicked powers

Then whisper, to further its victim hound

For years Poe pretended not to such hear

He was busy, with writing his great verse

No time for such nonsense, no time for fear

Deny the truth of this tiresome new curse

 

In so doing, shut out this bothersome beast

Pen sweeter words of love and write, write, write

Enjoy fame, his being toast of the East

Phantom ignore, that newborn curse of night

Yet to Raven, this was but the new game

Had it not, its greatest victim now found

And in glee, flew aloft screaming that name

Swearing an oath to one day have Poe bound.

(II.)

For seven years it had been wickedly clever

Doing just enough to sate its wicked desires

When begged to stop. Alas it cried, never

Not until your soul rests on the burning pyres

Yet Poe now keenly aware this was no dream

And with accursed fever, praying it to cease

Sought help from a young friend to form a team

Anything, anything to gain his release.

 

Raven now knew it was time to a truth real

That soon, very soon, it would make Poe cry

And with fiendish delight his true love kill

And forever all of his happiness deny

That night Poe lost it, flew into a rage

Scribing vows that few men would dare to utter

His blood was ink splashing onto each page

Gnashing teeth as each word he would mutter.

 

Raven too had hatched a brilliant new plan

A week he invisibly watched -showing no sign

Having realized Poe that was no ordinary man

Watching with hellish glee, as Poe scribed each line

This great battle was to be a battle of wits

Spread from night skies down to Plutonian shores

Beneath burning rocks into dark putrid pits

Two warriors set about to even the scores.

 

Poe rose each morn, a new fire in his steady eyes

For he could not Raven's dreaded threat forget

He must never blink- always seek to true prize

For nothing like this beast had he ever met

Raven each night, flew up from far below

With only inflicting pain on its hellish mind

That its hate was immense and each night grows

Could not see, that such would soon make it blind.

 

Thinking, smiling with time, time was on its side

And had not Fate to its evil demands agreed

Raven wings stretched for a victory ride

So very content to watch Poe's heart bleed

Yet Fate and Poe both decried its dark heart

Determination thus born by a man

One sure to upset Raven's applecart

Must be executed as a long range plan.

 

It would use Raven's immense vanity

As well rely on a couple old traps

Twist or two to test Raven's sanity

And have Raven running few hundred laps

Poe who had never depended on Fate

Was all in as it was sure to go well

Raven would discover it  far too late

And wake to again find itself in Hell.

 

First to inform about the game, Poe's friend

A young lad most clever and truly bright

He would have to hate Poe, only pretend

And make Raven believe it that dark night

Now to get the dagger and blood-red ink

Rehearse the scene while Raven was away

Water down the whiskey Poe was to drink

And in its success each sincerely pray.

 

Night again came, Raven was there with glee

Raven sat with its happy evil soul

Poe's room was dark almost too dark to see

Was necessary to achieve the goal

Poe began by decrying his sad plight

The constant torment was driving him mad

Complaining this agony was not right

What had he ever done that was so bad?

 

Muttering how his life he would soon end

And join his beloved in that dark place

Death take me, Poe called- this poor soul send

That again I may see her pretty face

Raven watching, thought this is what I need

Poe destroyed dying in deep disgrace

Beg I true evil let me see him bleed

No other joy could ever this replace!

(III.)

There came hammer knocking on the back door

As Poe was acting out pitiful moans

Raven thought, could this be from Hell's dark shore

Another beast hearing anguishing groans

Then a sweet young  voice, from a mortal man

Asking entry from his friend Master Poe

Raven mused, more fish for frying pan

Tonight shall be a most delightful show!

 

Poe look startled but said, "enter young lord"

I was merely rehearsing for a play

Pray tell me what news for I am bored

And this has been a truly dreadful day

Young Luke crossed the room and bowed low

Rising gave Poe the dagger as a gift

Asking, Master Poe why this strange request

And your odd message, bring it and be swift.

 

Poe took the weapon with a sad, sad look

In a wailing voice said- "this is my Fate"

As he did so his entire body shook

He in soft voice moaned, you are not too late

Young Luke was startled and a bit confused

Have you such sorrows as to death invite

Asking, for this you would not have used

A dear friend, to bring this sharp blade tonight!

 

No sooner said, than Raven cried, "no not yet"

Poe you must not, I need far more than this

Too soon, dark master and I have a bet

And next blood moon is to be your death kiss

Poe and Luke pretended to not such hear

As Luke moved and blocked Raven's view

Raven almost exploded from the fear

When Luke that loud cry gave, Raven then knew!

 

Alas! Raven thought such must never be

This calamity that has foiled my plan

Was never what Fate and I did agree

Not for this hideous and loathsome man

Fate, have you our agreement now went back on

Did not our sworn oath -we in hot-blood swear

And both splash our venom on the bloodstone

This, after my accursed soul I bare!

 

As Luke stepped back, there Poe in blood lay

That dagger to the hilt stick in his chest

Luke fell to his knees, God forgive I pray

May our brother Poe now have peaceful rest

Raven beside itself, at thus being cheated

Cursed sky, cursed even louder Fate

As Luke into far corner retreated

Raven came forward to eat from that plate.

 

As Raven neared, his invisible cloak fell

Approaching were Master Poe had died

And from distant hill the midnight church bell

Rang in tune with those tears Raven cried

Leaning closer to whisper in Poe's ear

Raven over dead master hovered

Saying, this fresh blood my soul now so cheers

I shall taste it and my face now smother!

 

With its ghastly black tongue it licked

As it got that first bloody red-ink taste

Would know it had been cleverly  tricked

Poe acted swiftly, with no time to waste

The dagger plunged into Raven's chest

Raven felt its razor sharp silver blade

Poe said, I send thee to your hellish nest

And to the death that your evil hath made!

 

Then Raven vanished into thin air

Room suddenly lit up with golden light

A glowing angel then appeared there

Allowing Poe and Luke to see its sight

With a joyful shout it sang right on out

You shall both be truly, deeply  blessed

And with deep pride walk this world all about

Raven now this failure has confessed.

 

Luke spoke first, saying but Raven is dead

How can it, such confession ever speak

Poe, did you hear what this angel has said

Raven can again into our world sneak

Poe addressed the angel, is this true

That foul beast can innocent souls aggrieve

Did it not receive the death it was due

Or has Fate-  Luke and I now so deceived?

 

Angel replied, that was Raven's first death

Evil beast has six more deaths to endure

Before that savage thing takes its last breath

Earth not see it's like, of that I assure

Poe said, of this night I shall  set in verse

We must ever be on guard and alert

And remember this beast is a dark curse

That lives to get revenge and mankind hurt!

The Bloodstone, The Raven And Master Poe

Part Three of Three

Note_

Total of three parts, composed in a total of 200

rhyming verses....This is part three- the conclusion.

A dark tale, in rhyme and with the epic struggle

between Raven and Master Poe.

Raven with yet six more lives to infest earth

and thus plague Poe and whomever it chooses.

I myself have heard the late night knocking but

but laughed it off and set mousetraps -knowing

that disbelief is a stout shield…. Admitting that

such is a reality may bring in an unwanted guest….

 From The Tree Of Evil Into Earth Its Broken Bough

 

From the tree of evil into earth its broken bough

Power and pain such fertile seed for its black-plow

And the evil fruit consumed by all of mankind

Hunger that sets the dark into the human mind

Flies so deftly with demon spawn upon its wings

Defies logic, presented as mere stranger things

Woe to those that see not the brilliancy of Poe

Not seeing,  his dark verses were not just for show!

 

We mortals that think we are far above it all

Walk in our blindness, hearing not such monsters call

Master Poe warns of Raven, we think it so cute

Our disbelief lies at evil tree's longest root

And repugnant plaguing shadows born from its fruit

Those that enter victim's homes to life so disrupt

Such as is that deep blindness that truth so corrupts

And may in some way bring life's end far too abrupt!

 

Master Poe of such a plaguing  curse had to fight

He that despite his knowledge-had no peace at night

Man, a prisoner to the beast in his own home

Malevolent menace there,  Raven free to roam.

 

From the tree of evil into earth its broken bough

Power and pain such fertile seed for its black-plow

And the evil fruit consumed by all of mankind

Hunger that sets the dark into the human mind.

Edgar Allan Poe, (born January 19, 1809, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.—died October 7, 1849, Baltimore, Maryland), American short-story writer, poet, critic, and editor who is famous for his cultivation of mystery and the macabre. His tale “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” (1841) initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction. His “The Raven” (1845) numbers among the best-known poems in the national literature.

Life

Poe was the son of the English-born actress Elizabeth Arnold Poe and David Poe, Jr., an actor from Baltimore. After his mother died in Richmond, Virginia, in 1811, he was taken into the home of John Allan, a Richmond merchant (presumably his godfather), and of his childless wife. He was later taken to Scotland and England (1815–20), where he was given a classical education that was continued in Richmond. For 11 months in 1826 he attended the University of Virginia, but his gambling losses at the university so incensed his guardian that he refused to let him continue, and Poe returned to Richmond to find his sweetheart, (Sarah) Elmira Royster, engaged. He went to Boston, where in 1827 he published a pamphlet of youthful Byronic poems, Tamerlane, and Other Poems. Poverty forced him to join the army under the name of Edgar A. Perry, but, on the death of Poe’s foster mother, John Allan purchased his release from the army and helped him get an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Before going, Poe published a new volume at Baltimore, Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane, and Minor Poems (1829). He successfully sought expulsion from the academy, where he was absent from all drills and classes for a week. He proceeded to New York City and brought out a volume of Poems, containing several masterpieces, some showing the influence of John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. He then returned to Baltimore, where he began to write stories. In 1833 his “MS. Found in a Bottle” won $50 from a Baltimore weekly, and by 1835 he was in Richmond as editor of the Southern Literary Messenger. There he made a name as a critical reviewer and married his young cousin Virginia Clemm, who was only 13. Poe seems to have been an affectionate husband and son-in-law.

Bradbury compares the screenplay with the written work and discusses both the Gothic tradition and Poe's influence on contemporary science fiction.

Poe was dismissed from his job in Richmond, apparently for drinking, and went to New York City. Drinking was in fact to be the bane of his life. To talk well in a large company he needed a slight stimulant, but a glass of sherry might start him on a spree; and, although he rarely succumbed to intoxication, he was often seen in public when he did. This gave rise to the conjecture that Poe was a drug addict, but according to medical testimony he had a brain lesion. While in New York City in 1838 he published a long prose narrative, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, combining (as so often in his tales) much factual material with the wildest fancies. It is considered one inspiration of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. In 1839 he became coeditor of Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazine in Philadelphia. There a contract for a monthly feature stimulated him to write “William Wilson” and “The Fall of the House of Usher,” stories of supernatural horror. The latter contains a study of a neurotic now known to have been an acquaintance of Poe, not Poe himself.

 

Later in 1839 Poe’s Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque appeared (dated 1840). He resigned from Burton’s about June 1840 but returned in 1841 to edit its successor, Graham’s Lady’s and Gentleman’s Magazine, in which he printed “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”—the first detective story. In 1843 his “The Gold Bug” won a prize of $100 from the Philadelphia Dollar Newspaper, which gave him great publicity. In 1844 he returned to New York, wrote “The Balloon Hoax” for the Sun, and became subeditor of the New York Mirror under N.P. Willis, thereafter a lifelong friend. In the New York Mirror of January 29, 1845, appeared, from advance sheets of the American Review, his most famous poem, “The Raven,” which gave him national fame at once. Poe then became editor of the Broadway Journal, a short-lived weekly, in which he republished most of his short stories, in 1845. During this last year the now-forgotten poet Frances Sargent Locke Osgood pursued Poe. Virginia did not object, but “Fanny’s” indiscreet writings about her literary love caused great scandal. His The Raven and Other Poems and a selection of his Tales came out in 1845, and in 1846 Poe moved to a cottage at Fordham (now part of New York City), where he wrote for Godey’s Lady’s Book (May–October 1846) “The Literati of New York City”—gossipy sketches on personalities of the day, which led to a libel suit.

 

On the other side, Poe is conspicuous for a close observation of minute details, as in the long narratives and in many of the descriptions that introduce the tales or constitute their settings. Closely connected with this is his power of ratiocination. He prided himself on his logic and carefully handled this real accomplishment so as to impress the public with his possessing still more of it than he had; hence the would-be feats of thought reading, problem unraveling, and cryptography that he attributed to his characters William Legrand and C. Auguste Dupin. This suggested to him the analytical tales, which created the detective story, and his science fiction tales.

 

The same duality is evinced in his art. He was capable of writing angelic or weird poetry, with a supreme sense of rhythm and word appeal, or prose of sumptuous beauty and suggestiveness, with the apparent abandon of compelling inspiration; yet he would write down a problem of morbid psychology or the outlines of an unrelenting plot in a hard and dry style. In Poe’s masterpieces the double contents of his temper, of his mind, and of his art are fused into a oneness of tone, structure, and movement, the more effective, perhaps, as it is compounded of various elements.

 

As a critic, Poe laid great stress upon correctness of language, metre, and structure. He formulated rules for the short story, in which he sought the ancient unities: i.e., the short story should relate a complete action and take place within one day in one place. To these unities he added that of mood or effect. He was not extreme in these views, however. He praised longer works and sometimes thought allegories and morals admirable if not crudely presented. Poe admired originality, often in work very different from his own, and was sometimes an unexpectedly generous critic of decidedly minor writers.

 

Poe’s genius was early recognized abroad. No one did more to persuade the world and, in the long run, the United States, of Poe’s greatness than the French poets Charles Baudelaire and Stéphane Mallarmé. Indeed his role in French literature was that of a poetic master model and guide to criticism. French Symbolism relied on his “The Philosophy of Composition,” borrowed from his imagery, and used his examples to generate the theory of pure poetry.

An old fragment from decades ago , untitled,

and yet to be finished…

 

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And in the dark, the huge monster feverishly waited

For the young innocent child,  it had so cleverly baited

To be a delicious dish, a truly fine, magnificent meal

O' how wicked its dark and ravenous blackness must feel

Whilst this blinded world in its flowing fantasy exists

Thinking evil is made up of only men with their puny fists

Yet one poet in The House of Usher set the record straight

There from the dark beneath, far greater  than man's hate

Await those so fierce most are bound in unbreakable chains

That which when free, bringeth such agonizing and great pains

So was that dark hidden world that master Poe saw and knew

The untold tales of which Poe gave to this world just a few

And in that his rightful glory burst forth like a dark flower

For we that can see, evil watches from its invisible towers

And with eagerness, and its great savagery its carnage waits

For those that are to be its victims- so cast by dark hands of Fate..

RJL, July 25th  1973

Sad part about the blog is the information that I had to delete to get it to post. I tried 4 times to post it until finally I DELETED A LARGE part of the information text. The 5th time it posted. And that deleted part was a very important part of the blog, imho...

Thank you my friend. True there was that but in Poe's time marrying a cousin was a far more common thing than it is in these modern times. I had only this morn thought about finishing that poem fragment- but decided to put it off a bit. As need time to be in the right spirit/mood to do it proper service-as such will take a lot to get correct and stay in context and in flow with the original intent of that idealistic and rampaging young poet that started it centuries ago!

This is without a doubt, the greatest of tributes to our, "Gothic Prince," that I've ever read. This is so breathtaking, dear Robert. Your own writing is to be honored too, a genius blog, good friend. God's blessings to you, always. ~

I deleted a large section of information on Poe because for some reason the blog would not post until I shortened it. Such to me was indeed a most grievous act but seemed necessary... Still leaves a bad taste that such was necessary.. Almost makes we want to do another blog just to get that information in.. As I hate that this one was forced to be incomplete, imho..

Thank you my dear friend. As you so rightly named, Poe was a "Gothic Prince".. And in that marvelous and oft fevered brain spun such fantastic, delightful and entertaining tales as to truly astound the world in his time and well into this modern and very dark world that we ourselves must endeavor to wade through today! Delighted you found this tribute blog to be worthy. God bless..

As is evidenced by the comments made so far on this new blog. That poets here appreciate information, and learning of new things about poetry and this our chosen art form.. God bless..

Another informative blog Robert, like many on here I'd heard of Poe but didnt know his background or his other works. You've certainly shone the spotlight on him and us the readers have benefitted from your research and the hours you have put in. Tom

Thank you my friend. Always a joy for me to give back to poetry. Especially so in my blogs about the great poets that have so influenced, inspired and thus so affected so many tens of millions of us. Poe being one of those golden poets of old- that did so very much to shine light upon poetry-its gems, treasures and joys gifted to this too oft dark world. God bless..

A master talent Robert,(both you& him) ..my tribute a decade back was a 'list cinquain where L1 is a statement followed by rhymed L2-5 that amplify the statement with words introduced by 'in the' by the ' of the'.I labelledt this an eap after Edgar Allan Poe as it is inspired by soliloquy in this format in the conclusion of his essay Poetic Principle.

Thank you my very learned friend. One can do no better than that of studying the true poetic genius- Edgar Allan Poe. And not just his poetry but as well his short stories and his life. Such a talent that died a tragic death. And a poet that gave so much to poetry and to this dark world. He cast light upon the darkness and did so with magnificent style, flair, insight , courage, knowledge , talent and vision... God bless..

An amazing writer truly and one of my favorites, The Raven, being my best, along with The Tell-Tale Heart and The Fall of the House of Usher. A magnificent share of welcoming enlightenment upon your normal exposé of notable writers, Robert, for it dealt preciously through the rare overcast of this Hawaiian morn, Aloha!

Thank you my friend, your comment truly speaks so well about the greatness of Poe. And the poems you cited, both are fantastic examples of his poetic genius, and artistry. I agree with you completely- the Raven is to me the best. And to be the best in the many truly awesome poems he wrote is indeed to be in a lofty and stratospheric level. God bless my friend...
