El Dorado by Edgar Allen Poe was short, easy to read, but difficult to understand. Maybe someone can share their insights.
Back in the 1980s I watched a TV show called Airwolf. In one episode someone kidnapped Hawke and Santini's friend Caitlin. They left a note with a clue as to where she was taken. Archangel deciphered it as El Dorado by Edgar Allen Poe where it said:
"Over the mountains, of the moon, down the valley of the shadow,
Ride, boldly, ride, the shade replied, if you see for El Dorado"
Was the "shade" a ghost?
the "shade" is indeed a phantom or ghost. is also one of my favorite poems.
i first heard it watching the movie "el dorado" with robert mitchum, john wayne and james caan way back before i was a teenager i think. 1965 i believe is when the movie was made.
poe is one of my favorite poets.
