I have just read this poem for the first time, and I am in a comp 2 class
in college. I have always been told that Poe was a dark angry man that only
wrote about negatives, and while this poem is in a way about death, I feel
the main point in the poem is the love that they share. Because their love
is still there after she is gone. Brilliant poem!

I personaly think that this poem is about Edgar Allen missing one of his
many women that he has lodt over the years and het thinks that the hevans
above are punishing him in some way for taking the women he has loved and
every time he gets one that he loves she always dies and he thinks the
hevans are jealous of his love that he can never seem to keep do to his
deathly curse

I vividly remember that day in 1969 when I delivered Annabel Lee, the
poem,in my first year high school English class. I was a student then.
Now, I have secured a copy of it for my Englsih class again but this time,
I am already an English professor.

I thank God for writers like Edgar Allan Poe. May we have more writers as
brilliant as him. His style, passion and choices of words surely add
colors and interest in English poetry.

Sorry - I commented on this poem and thought the lengthy comment was from
Genrthy, but it was actually from Stevan Fallon Dunn.

Thank you for talking about the Virginia-Annabelle Lee-Lenore connection.
When I read "The Raven" in school, I couldn't help but assume Lenore was
based upon Poe's wife/cousin, Virginia Clemms, and likewise, that Annabel
Lee was also based upon Virginia. I was taught in school, both when reading
"Annabel Lee" and "the Raven," that the female characters in both stories
were written with Virginia in mind. I hold true to that statement. I don't
know who wouldn't think Poe would write about Virginia after her death, so
it only makes sense he created female characters based on her; from what I
understand, for the most part such female characters die, as the actual
Virginia did. I don't see how Virginia could be unrelated to Lenore and
Annabel Lee.
