    The Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite story by Poe but Annabel Lee is my favorite poem. I cherish all his writings. Nobody has ever written just like Poe and nobody ever will. (Report) Reply

    I agree with you. But I like his short stories more than his poems.

    This is a poem of how one can resurrect the beloved each night in the dream, and written with such simplicity of an
    aching heart, which so many of us have experienced - it echoes my two lines: Love is never wasted, even when it doesn't last. Panmelys (Report) Reply

    Edgar Allan Poe is the most underrated poet of the last two Centuries. His poetic genius was unprecedented and he still possesses the most gilded diadems in the crown of poetic achievement. His verse speaks to the heart because Poe not only wrote poetry - he lived poetry.

    I agree with you John...Poe was a national treasure and still bearing gifts to us all.

    The pain and brokenness of the languishing Mr. Poe produced a poetic jewel. Intriguingly beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Well, as somebody said sometime ago:
    The beautiful yet dark mind of Edgar Allan Poe
    This poem makes me sad and happy at the same time,
    He lost his precious love, but at least he had someone to love.
    Now his Annabel Lee lives forever by his side. (Report) Reply

    Poe immortalizes here in Annabel Lee his first love that he could not translate into earthly reality. Once again, no poet can overcome the personal impressions in poetry. Here in this poem -the unrequited love revives, and the poet treasures it as unearthly bliss. (Report) Reply
