THE POWER OF WORDS

First Publication:

Democratic Review. June, 1845.

Subsequent Publication History:

Broadway Journal. October 25, 1845.

Works II. 1850.

Genre:

The Power of Words is a prose poem.

Summary:

The Power of Words is considered by Mabbott to be the best of "Poe's three imaginary dialogues of blessed spirits in heaven." The story is composed of a dialogue between Oinos and Agathos. According to Mabbott, "Oinos here means 'One' and Agathos means 'Good.' The conversation between the two takes place in the future, after the destruction of the World. In The Power of Words, Poe discusses the creation of the universe and develops the idea that God only created in the beginning. Poe expresses the belief that a spirit's willingness to gain knowledge is the direct cause of happiness for the spirit and spearheads a neverending quest for more information. "As no thought can perish, so no act is without infinite result. Since every vibration once set in motion is eternal, the power of the word once spoken is also everlasting."

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now
whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.

Is there a means you can remove me from that service?

Kudos!

I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

Hi there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to
find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very
