Review of "Sonnet--To Science" by Edgar Allan Poe
"Sonnet--To Science" by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) (pictured) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on September 29, 2013. In this traditional rhyming sonnet, Poe laments that science has taken the romance out of life--the poetry out of life--by disproving myths. He asks how these two disparate forces--reason and romance--might be reconciled.
