The Cypress Alley

Symbol Analysis

There's more spooky, dark imagery here. On a dark night full of shadows, we bet these tall cypress trees would be really creepy.

  • Line 12: There's some really great alliteration in this line. Check out the three main words in this line: Cypress, Psyche, soul. Although they start with different letters, they share the same sound – s, s, s. This is just one of the many cool sound effects Poe has woven into this poem.
