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

    My dear mother introduced me to this wonderful poem. Never could thank her enough.
    Stayed with me, all my life, as did her love (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

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
