Poem-a-Day: El Dorado

A poem selected by Ahren Jensch, English 348:

"El Dorado," by Edgar Allan Poe.

Read or watch a video interpretation:

Edgar Allen Poe is one of the greatest poets of all time. His ability to create a flow of words is unparalleled. Poe's poem "El Dorado" is a poem that many people can relate to. It seems everyone is searching for his or her own version of "El Dorado" whether that be fame or wealth, but it seems "El Dorado" is a sense of happiness.
~Ahren Jensch, UW-Eau Claire student, English 348
