Review of "Sonnet--To Science" by Edgar Allan Poe

"Sonnet--To Science" by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) (pictured) was offered by'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.
