Lucien Douglas Performs "Alone"

Lucien Douglas, Professor of Theatre and Dance at The University of Texas at Austin, performs an excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe's "Alone."

Excerpt from "Alone" by Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
