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.

I was assigned to write an essay paper in my English class on one of the
many poets that we've learned about. First of all I was never attracted to
learn about any poet authors. But when I the my english teacher first
talked about him I was amazed about his life and his poems. And the poem
that really catched my attention and went deep me was "Annabel Lee".I just
love the way he exppresses himself with all that love for Annabel Lee. I
can tell he really loved her. I got very sentimental when I read this poem
because is sad to loose the "love of your life" I would never want to be in
his shoes.

This poem had such a great impact on me that I named my child Anabelle Lee
( I changed the spelling) it is bittersweet, as was much of poe's work and
