That a maiden there lived whom you may know

    I will never forget this poem. I was in high school when I first read this poem. We were tasked to analyze it. Though I could not really fully understand the meaning, the words were imprinted in my mind. It was beautiful then. It is still beautiful now. (Report) Reply

    This is one of the classics that seems to be derived from so many alternate things, that fit so perfectly together, like a puzzle, that truly almost every different viewer could extract a different meaning. Yet each meaning still as right as the last, and filled with the same personal experiences. (Report) Reply

    Why oh why doesn't this poem by the master poet Poe have a 5 rating? 5 doesn't have to mean perfect- -we all know that perfection is not within man's capacity to attain- - but 5 should mean that someone came as close to perfection as humanly possible. (Report) Reply

    Quietly majestic in its haunting tones. I believe this to be one of the most beautiful lines in the literature of love:

    Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

    As an aside, I am always intrigued by the personalization of individual tragedy as an anthropomorphism of the cosmos antagonizing the individual from some humanized derivation of motive, such as jealousy. To visualize the loss of a loved one because the angels in heaven or the demons in hell took offense at a some quality of a human relationship is an extensive and intriguing discourse throughout literature. Overall, one of my favourites.

    edger has a way of idolising his poet personae. this shows us a profound understanding of love for in this poem it is described as something that is endless. (Report) Reply

    my fav. one

    But our love it was stronger by far than the love
    Of those who were older than we-
    Of many far wiser than we-
    And neither the angels in heaven above,
    Nor the demons down under the sea,
    Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
