"Eleonora" is a short story that draws heavily from E. A. Poe's own life and marriage. Surprisingly optimistic and devoid of any real terrors, the tale, though dealing with similar topics from Poe's previous works, abounds in examples of madness, love, and paradisiacal existence. Once again, the female character is at the centre of Poe's world, structuring the rest around herself and navigating the other characters' lives. One can almost read the story as a poetic work, blending romance, sentimentality, and his all-time favourite: the return of the loved one. -
