Blog 8: Poem Analysis – “Bridal Ballad” – Leah's Blog

She realizes how unhappy she is and deeply regrets what she has done. She realizes she had abandoned the memory of her true love which died in battle. My opinion of the poem is that I thought it was written very well, and it was written about something that many brides may endure before they go and get married. I think Poe was trying to express the idea that not even a ring or a wedding can really bind two people together. Love is what truly gives a wedding band its meaning, it has nothing to do with the materialistic aspect of that.

I thought this was a very good poem and I mostly choose it because its applicable to scenarios there are today in life.

She makes the perfect picture of a happy bride. In the second stanza, she starts s h owing signs of unexplained guilt. Now, I originally thought this meant she was thrilled by his declaration of love. It can be assumed that the dead lover is happy because the bride is feeling guilty for marrying another man, thus he is not forgotten in her heart. This line, thought by the bride, could mean she sees her new groom as her dead lover, or, it could mean that she is leaving the dead to the past.

Looking at stanza four, it is my best guess to say that the second interpretation is the true one.
