    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

    Sometimes, it's good to revisit the works of the masters. I've enjoyed this poem ever since I first read it. It's among Poe's best works. (Report) Reply

    Annabel Lee, a classic, deepest in its thoughts, even with eyes closed, and mind dark, can see and feel its meaning. (Report) Reply

    one of my favorite poems, the poem conveys a profound meaning as well the language is just too good to be recreated.the poem is of 6 paras, but it's so well written that is flows with beauty, i feel like I've only read 3-4 paras.
    it truly deserves to be in the top 10 list. (Report) Reply

    Well.. I really love this poem. I love how macabre it sounds by repeating those sentences and words. I love the way he's trying to tell us that his beloved died. At first it seems like he's not brave enough to use some strong word, so he says A wind blew out of a cloud chilling my beautiful Annabe Lee... It sounds so scary, but still so calming. Personally, my favourite lines are:
    And neither the angels in haven above,
    Nor the demons down under the sea,
    Can ever dissever my sould from the soul
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
    I can feel the power of words while saying ever dissever.
    E.A.Poe is and will ever be my favourite poet. (Report) Reply

    For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
    And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
    Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride
    What an amazing poem & love to the wife! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I first heard of this poem in my band class. A piece of music was written about this poem, with the same sadness and intensity of the poem inside the piece of music. (Report) Reply

    Oh my gosh oh my gosh; i loved it some people think that i am too young to like things like this poem, but they don't understand that u are never too young to love something that Edgar Allen Poe wrote (and matthew gray gubler put on his website) because they don't understand what we children know and what adults don't.

    Edgar Allan Poe is by far one of my favourite poets. This poem is one of the first I heard of, and the one that sat into my head the fastest. It's just lovely. (Report) Reply
