A Ghostly Sanity


Kristin Cowden, Managing Editor

This is just a collage of Edgar Allan Poe’s poems/short stories, and how it all ties together.I did make a couple changes as well

O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
“Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the part! — tear up the floor! — here is the beating of his hideous heart!”
And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
            Shall be lifted. Quoth the Raven: “nevermore!”
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken!—quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!”
Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
