    This poem is so magnificent and sad. I wish he was still alive. I totally love the part that reads:

    but our love it was stronger 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. (Report) Reply

    I have performed this work as a declamation when I was in high school, I won the championship. Thank you Sir Edgar Allan Poe.

    As I play the main character in the poem... I felt his love and sorrow for his beloved Annabel Lee. I felt how much the separation costs both Annabel and the guy. How much the guy will sacrifice just to get where Annabel is. He will slay demons and such creatures, even sail the turbulent sea just to reach her. However, in the end, is still a tragedy for he lost his beloved to fate. I felt his broken soul trying as it might to deny what happened, but has nothing left for everything starts and ends with his love. (Report) Reply

    Edgar Allan Poe was one of the greatest literary figures of all times. I have been an avid fan of his work since middle school. I enjoy many of his short stories and poems, but Annabel Lee is a particular favorite of mine. It is a hauntingly beautiful, but sad poem in which Poe expresses his love and grief for his wife Virginia. It is in my opinion that this poem is a poetic masterpiece! (Report) Reply

    I knew AEP as a writer of stories of suspense and mystery. Only now I came to know that he is a poet of a high calibre. This is a very delicate tragic romantic poem which is more pronounced in its mysticism towards the end. (Report) Reply
