It's Poefect (Sorry, couldn't help myself)

| | Comments (0)

Yeah... This was supposed to be the very first blog entry for my American Lit. class. I FORGOT. This is about Poe's poem "Sonnet: To Science."

"Why preyest thou thus upon the poet's heart"

In the poem, Poe laments how science is changing the way people look at things. At the time he wrote it, some common knowledge that we know today was just being discovered. Instead of using imagination to explain things, science has to find an answer for everthing. Poe claims that it's destroying the poet's way of life.
