    Poe has a way of making you feel the pain of his very soul, making you forget who you are. (Report) Reply

    Poe is a great poet, but he is also very depressing at times. (Report) Reply

    Most of Edgar Allan Poe's poems are about loved ones dying and being killed because of what happened to him in his own life. He lost his wife whom he was madly in love with, and he's been going crazy over the loss of his wife. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful and mysterious. The language, again, carries the poem. (Report) Reply

    Death lays its icy hands many times on the ones we cherish most. Why won't you take us with them too? Thank you poet. This is for all my Annabel Lees. You may be gone but are never over. (Report) Reply

    I never believed I could have a favorite poem until I came across this one a couple months back by complete incident.

    Needless to say, it stole my heart and wound my soul. There will be no other poem for me. (Report) Reply

    Poe's works are always breath-taking! They speak of so much of his life. If only there were others like him, but that is what makes him a legend! (Report) Reply

    All of his poems have such a wonderful FEEL to them. No matter how morbid, they're so... moving. And truly, truly beautiful. He chose his words so masterfully, and put together perfect rhythms. What an inspirational poet. (Report) Reply

    I quite like this poem, it is, as one would say, 'romantic', but ends in a deliciously Poe fashion, with a twist, implying the persona either killed himself to be with this Annabel Lee, or simply sleeps next to her dead form in her tomb. Either way, the ending makes the poem much more than a love story. (Report) Reply

    I read in a Poem, of love so strong, that even as he mourns, he sees his love in everything. His love he'll never forget, no one or thing, can seperate them, from their one and only true love. (Report) Reply
