Ulalume

by Edgar Allan Poe

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

The sounds and the sights in this poem are pretty gripping. The main story is direct and exciting too. There are a few spots where you're bound to feel a little lost (we know we did), especially due to strange vocab. But we think that's part of the effect Poe is trying to achieve. With Shmoop on your side to help with the tricky spots, this should be an easy climb.
