Annabel Lee


It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know

    Can ever, dissever my soul from the soul.............
    Pathetically poignant, transmission of feeling
    Goes through you like a poetic shock (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

    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

    Such language of jewel like beauty to depict the power of love. Poe shines like a star amongst the pantheon of poets (Report) Reply

    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

    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

    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
