This poem was written by Edgar Allen Poe and what a great poem it is! It's
a romantic, loving, mournful love poem. I love it, and its very sentimental
to what critics believe was his 16 year old lover he wished to marry, but
died before the could. I love this poem and encourage others ages young and
old to read it!

After reading all your theories I would like to add my own thoughts about
this poem.


Most of Poes work is about death, agony and sorrow. but he transforms death
into something beautiful, something magical, death get's romantizised. But
then again, he lived under the horrorromance era (ca 1800~1840). "Annabel
lee" is surely about his cousin, it came out two years after her death, and
the same year that poe died (1849). You can see lots of resemblences to his
other poems, "the raven" and "Lenore" for example, both of them are also
centered around a beloved, beautiful woman that have died. He's a true
genius, that's for sure.

I have read everyone's thoughts on this poem and I am quite puzzled because
my thoughts are so different. When I read this poem, immediately I thought
of a stalker. The love that the narrator speaks of is not love at all but
obesession. I personally would be afraid of someone professing to love me
in the manner that the narrator describes his love for Annabel Lee. Some
women think that a little jealousy is cute, but these are the women that
find themselves in abusive relationships. Now maybe I am way off the
marker on this one, but this is what this poem means to me.

This a poem about a two lovers that were torn apart, by death.'Annabel
Lee'talks about Poe's never ending love that he had for her.Even though she
was no longer there he loved her probably till the day he himself died.This
poem shows the true meaning of the word love which we use so lightly
today.-Andrea 13yrs old

Whom ever typed this poem, made a mistake. In Edgar Allan Poe's original
version of this masterpeice, instead of "And the stars never rise, but I
see the bright eyes" he wrote, "And the stars never rise, but I FEEL the
bright eyes". Other than this flaw, I believe that this website is perfect
with the other peoms of his.

I just love this poem. Even if it is about death, I feel that it is more
about love. Just because someone is gone does not mean the love is not
there. I also think it was for Virginia. You can tell that he really cared
and loved her. This poem always makes me feel good when I read it.
