"A Dream Within a Dream" by Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented...

“And who is Richmond’s most celebrated literary son? Why, none other than Edgar Allan Poe himself. Where did Poe spend the last few months of his life before he mysteriously died? Some say he was murdered, and if he was indeed targeted, his killers were to be found in, yes, Richmond, the RVA.”

“A calm and collected killer would abscond to a foreign land where it’s far easier to live under an assumed name. Who would be foolish enough to hide in plain sight? To act as if nothing untoward has happened? To follow established routines and then feign surprise when the handcuffs are clapped on? Such an audacious plan sounds like it comes directly from the pen of Edgar Allan Poe…so is this...

"Nothing is more clear than that every plot, worth the name, must be elaborated to its dénouement before any thing be attempted with the pen. It is only with the dénouement constantly in view that we can give a plot its indispensable air of consequence, or causation, by making the incidents, and especially the tone at all points, tend to the development of the intention."

"On the other hand, it is clear that a poem may be improperly brief. Undue brevity degenerates into mere epigrammatism. A very short poem, while now and then producing a brilliant or vivid, never produces a profound or enduring, effect. There must be the steady pressing down of the stamp upon the wax."

“At some point I’ve embraced what Poe called ‘the spirit of PERVERSENESS,’ when one is drawn to behavior known to be wrong, repugnant, possibly criminal, simply because it’s wrong, repugnant, and possibly criminal. As Poe put it, “It is this unfathomable longing of the soul to vex itself.”
