    Everytime I read it, I cry. Can sadness be this beautiful? (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

    Chills! Poe had such a deft touch with the macabre. His love poems were beautifully creepy. (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

    One of the saddest but most beautiful love poems ever written,
    Painfully Poetic

    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

    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
