ABSTRACT. The answer to the question of whether objects are real or whether they become real only due to the fact that a mind “thinks” reality into them might be found in the language of poetry. Poe dealt with the dilemma of the relationship between thinker and object, mind and matter, body and soul. His theory of the fusion between mind and reality is an attempt at solving the problem of the split between the inner self and the outer world. Poe’s theory of art, argued in “The Philosophy of Composition” and “The Poetic Principle” elaborates on the idea that the Good, the True and the Beautiful, although approached differently are identical in the eyes of eternity and are after all aspects of one divine Unity.

Keywords: the Good; the True; the Beautiful; thinker/object; mind/matter; body/soul
