Eulalie Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story, and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Below is Eulalie Poem by Edgar Allan Poe, which is one of his finest works.

Eulalie poem by Edgar Allan Poe was first published in the July 1845 issue of The American Review and reprinted shortly thereafter in the August 9, 1845 issue of the Broadway Journal. The poem is a bridal song about a man who overcomes his sadness by marrying the beautiful Eulalie. The woman’s love here has a transformative effect on the narrator, taking him from a “world of moan” to one of happiness.

Below is Eulalie Poem by Edgar Allan Poe, which is a love poem. Let us know if you love it or not.

I dwelt alone
In a world of moan,
And my soul was a stagnant tide,
Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride-
Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.

Ah, less- less bright
The stars of the night
Than the eyes of the radiant girl!
That the vapor can make
With the moon-tints of purple and pearl,
Can vie with the modest Eulalie’s most unregarded curl-
Can compare with the bright-eyed Eulalie’s most humble and careless
curl.

Now Doubt- now Pain
Come never again,
For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,
And all day long
Shines, bright and strong,
Astarte within the sky,
While ever to her dear Eulalie upturns her matron eye-
While ever to her young Eulalie upturns her violet eye.

  1. Can’t agree with you about this one. I think Edgar Allan should have stuck to prose. (though “The Raven” isn’t bad).

  2. I don’t know.
    The emotion appears genuine, but some of rhyme seems a little forced. I had high expectations, having already read “The Raven” (I agree with gertloveday). Overall though, I do admire the poem.
