Storyboard Text

  • Title
  • Paraphrase
  • Connotation
  • This poem's title: Eldorado symbolizes a utopia or a paradise. The story is about the long and perilous journey in search of the unattainable paradise: Eldorado. 
  • Attitude
  • gallant, sunshine, journey, singing
  • A gallant knight begins his search for "Eldorado," but he starts growing old, still not having found this rich utopia. He starts losing not only hope but his life. nearing death, he finds this unearthly shadow who tells him that such a paradise may only exist after death.  
  • Shift
  • While in search for Eldorado, this knight's story starts off hopeful and joyous, but then soon starts losing hope and becoming weary and dreadful. this is expressed through terms such as gallant, sunshine, singing, then old, weary, weak, and failed. 
  • Theme
  • Edgar Allan Poe demonstrated the attitude of the story through his extraordinary word choice. words such as gallant, sunshine, journey, and singing demonstrate the hopeful tone. words such a failed, death, fell, shadow, old, dreary demonstrate his loss of hope. 
  • failed, death, shadow, old, dreary
  • The shift in the tone of the story occurs throughout two scenes: when he realizes he hasn't yet found his paradise and knows its too late, and when he met the pilgrim shadow who told him that his dream is foolish and unachievable.
  • Such a paradise like Eldorado may only exist in/after death, because the best things in life are, in fact, not things.
