That a maiden there lived whom you may know

    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

    No matter how many times I read this poem of everlasting love, it still goes through me like dagger (Report) Reply

    My dear mother introduced me to this wonderful poem. Never could thank her enough.

    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

    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

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
