You must be aware that there are two poems titled (at one time or another) "Alone". The first (1828) began with the line, "Oh, I care not... " and the second (1829) begins, "From Childhood's hour...". I have sent you a summary by e-mail of the second (1829) poem. I hope you find it useful.

Hey, I had to analyze this poem for a class...this is what i got from it:

He's saying that ever since he was born, he saw and took the world in differently than everyone else. Not badly, just differently. he found beauty in the uncommon things, not the typical. and he felt that he was the only one who did "and all i lov'd - i lov'd alone -" and what everyone else found was beautiful, he thought the opposite "of a demon in my view" have you seen American Beauty? well the guy with the camera, he had the same idea i think. i hope that helps
