Poe No More

Today's Quote of the Day on my Google page is from "Ligeia."

In beauty of face no maiden ever equaled her. It was the radiance of an opium-dream – an airy and spirit-lifting vision more wildly divine than the phantasies which hovered about the slumbering souls of the daughters of Delos.

God, I detest Poe. Take a red pencil to this, and all that would remain would be "of," "an," and "the."
