Poe Art

On this day in hisotry Edgar Allan poe was born.  Poe was an artist with words, and even though some of his works could be considered controversial and often confusing, he made us think.  And any artist that makes you think is a great artist in my book.

Can you name the poem that the following work of art was based on?



Can you name this other famous story by Poe?



Poe inspired dark works of art.  Can you name the two works?

  1. This is pretty dark. It looks scary sometimes. with the black colors, skelatons, and black birds. Pretty interesting really. I don't understand some of it but a lot of people probably like it.

  2. Edgar Allan Poe writes some pretty dark poetry. The raven that is made up of the words "never more" is from the poem The Raven. The second picture Im not sure what poem that is from!

  12. This is pretty unique. Has alot of shading that is added on both of the pictures. I thought it was really cool to have letters and make it into an object, person or animal.

  26. Dark work means alot of shading. Im not that well at shading but when its done right, it is so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  27. i love some of Poes work even thought alot of them are kinda sad i still think that they are cool. Also i think its cool how his work inspired other peopel even though its "dark" some people can relate and understand his work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Poe's art scares me. Poe's art is questionable just like his poems. I dont like how they dont have any color.

    ReplyDelete
  29. this is pretty neat. the way they put words together to make a animal is really neat. this couldn't be neater.

  32. I love the first one, i seen a shirt with that picture on it, and i thought about getting it. Edgar Allan Poe is getting a lot of attention nowadays. He really made history, and he deserves as much attention as any one could give him.
