The poem, El Dorado by Edgar Allen Poe, is about searching for one’s dreams.
The speaker has searched the world his whole life for El Dorado but dies without finding it.
EXAMPLE (TEXT EVIDENCE)
El Dorado is a metaphor for searching. The whole poem is a metaphor for what one searches for throughout life instead of being content with what one has.
The sad poem shows a wasted life of searching
for an unfound Utopia.
