This will be a three-page essay, excluding the works cited page, written in MLA format. You will answer the question, Why should Edgar Allan Poe and Ralph Waldo Emerson be compared, and what makes each distinctively their own? For Emerson, I recommend using his poems “Merlin”, “Brahma”, and “Bacchus”, and for Poe, I recommend using “The Raven”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and “Annabel Lee”. You must use at least three sources to cite from, only one of which may be from the Internet. The other sources you use must come from my colleges library database.
