It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know

    If you want a very honest opinion, I love this poem. But I interpret the message as a man who loved this 'Annabel Lee' but with a 'love more than love' - an obsession. The narrator of the poem seems very possessive and obsessive of the girl, and seems sort of crazy if you ask me. Edgar Allan Poe is famous for his darker literature, so it wouldn't really be surprising if the theme of the poem isn't just an 'everlasting love'. (Report) Reply

    So the narrator's crazy, right? This is the beautiful love story of a crazy man, poignant because it's a sad story, but also because he's nuts and doesn't realize it. Right? (Report) Reply

    In my opinion Poe was the greatest poet of all time, Annabel Lee like so many of his poems came from first hand experiance. he led a terribly tortured life and the evidence he put forth in his poetry. Anabel Lee has got to bethe most beautiful soul stirring poem of lost love, barr none. (Report) Reply

    Now we know why Poe drank, first love, true love, clash of families (shakespeare?) you bet. After that, what would be his only purpose to go on? (Report) Reply

    Such language of jewel like beauty to depict the power of love. Poe shines like a star amongst the pantheon of poets (Report) Reply

    This is a great full-circled poem indeed. Love is not a ticking bomb with an expiration date, but lives on past death, hence the long-lived poet and poem. View Blind Beauty. (Report) Reply

    One of my all time favorites. My 9th grade English teacher introduced me to Poe's poetry, and I've loved it ever-since. (Report) Reply

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
