Let’s Learn About Poe
What did you learn about Poe? (In your writer’s notebook list at least 30 facts that you learned.)
Share with me three interesting things you learned about Edgar Allan Poe that you found interesting.
Poe’s tough life and his style of writing are connected. His writing may stem from his life experiences, just as we usually write about what we know.
Read the lyrics to the music. See if you can make a connection from the song to the clip you are about to see.
See if you notice the connection between the loss of Poe's wife and mother to Lenore in "The Raven?“ (Next slide)
Homer Simpson Recites “The Raven”
Did you notice?
"Once upon a midnight, dearie,"- which is very similar to the first line of Poe's "The Raven:" "Once upon a midnight dreary . . ."
The tune proceeds to describe the singer's longing for a woman who has left him, just as Poe pined (longed/wished) for his lost Lenore.
