What Are Some Examples of Alliteration Poems Written by Famous Poets?

Some examples of famous poems that make use of alliteration are Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" and the epic poem "Beowulf." In "The Raven," Poe uses alliteration within the sentence, "Once upon a midnight dreary while I pondered weak and weary." In this example, the alliteration is created through the repetition of the sound formed by the "W" in "once," "while," "weak" and "weary."
