Edgar Allan Poe's poems are often considered "gateway" works. What do you think accounts for this introductory value? Poe’s poems are often...


If you use the term "gateway" in its defined sense--as a "structure framing an opening"--then I would agree that many of Poe's poems fit this description. Surely, his poems, particularly "Annabel Lee," "The Raven," and "The Bells," are among the most popular in American literature, and those poems have been taught for decades in public school English classes. They are among the most popularly recited and discussed in school classrooms and beautifully illustrate various forms of poetic structure, including rhyme schemes, meter, rhythm, alliteration and assonance, and tone, among others. All three create a specific mood, and Poe unveils the stories in a relatively straightforward manner--additional reasons for their initial interest to many students as well as to the enduring popularity of his work.
