My dad says that I'm too young to read this poem but one night we had spagetti and cheesy noodles and I used the computer quick and read the poem. I kind of thought it was about jealousy and deciet. Bluebeard was not a major part of this at all. sincerely, John Smith age 9

"Annabel Lee" is a sad poem describing the power of love. The man telling the poem describes his undying love for his wife, Annabel Lee. They loved each other since they were children. The angels up in the Heavens envy them so much that they send a chilling wind that kills Annabel Lee and take her away and place her in tomb. The husband still loves her and says that their souls are bonded together and can never be broken. Nothing could ever come between them. Even in death, their love still remains intact and this is shown when he decides to die next to his wife to be together forever.

Annabel Lee deals with horniness. The speaker is so damn horny that he remembers how good her wife was in bed. She did everything. Blowjobs, anal, 3somes and he love her for it. She was a hand full and she was a bitch too. :)

Written in 1849, "Annabel Lee" was published the same year, just two days after Poe's death on October 7. It appeared in two newspapers, the Richmond Examiner and the New York Tribune, and then in the 1850 edition of The Works of the Late Edgar Allan Poe. The poem has since become one of Poe's most popular works. Using a melodious narrative form, the speaker laments the death, many years ago, of his beloved young bride Annabel Lee. His loss moves him to state that envious angels caused the girl's death to "dissever" (separate) the young married couple. He tells briefly of her funeral and entombment "in her sepulchre ... by the sea." The narrator then reveals that he has been unable to accept their separation. Since her death, he has spent night after night at her tomb, an astonishing and perverse example of the immortality of young love.

"Annabel Lee" is a poem contributed to Poe's beloved wife. She died from a disease called tuberculosis(dont know if i spelled that right). The angels in heaven, and the deamons from hell were all jealous of the love that Annabel Lee and Poe shared. After her death, she was placed in a tomb above water, near land.

Annabel Lee and The speaker in the poem, Edgar allan Poe actually are both cousins and lovers. They married each other at very young age. The real name of "Annabel lee" was Virginia Clemm. Annebel died in her twenties beacause of the tuberculosis. And in the poem, the written cause of her death is the wind. Well, it can be associated with tuberculosis. Everyone is against the love story of Edgar and annabel for the reason that they are cousins. But still they got married. And when annebel died, her remains was taken by her relatives away from edgar. But because of love, edgar followed his wife at her tomb.

Edgar Allan Poe lived a rather melancholy life, which was reflected in his poems. He had to live through a number of deaths -- his parents before he was three and his wife when he was twenty-seven. He and his wife, Virginia, "loved with a love that was more than love," which was enough to make the "winged seraphs of heaven" envious. Because of this, they sent a wind that "blew out of a cloud," killing her. However, their love was so strong that even if their physical bodies could not be together, their souls could never be dissevered from each other's. He said, "The moon never beams without bringing me dreams of the beautiful Annabel Lee; and the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes of the beautiful Annabel Lee." They would always be together in spirit.

Memory and Reminiscing Readers are urged by the tone and setting of this poem to question how well the speaker actually remembers his relationship with his dead lover. From the very first line, the speaker admits that he is talking about things that happened "many and many years ago." Repeating the word "many" emphasizes the amount of time that has passed since Annabel Lee's death. This encourages readers' suspicions, since memories, especially extremely pleasant memories, are often idealized versions of reality.
