As you probably already know, Annabel Lee was written by Poe around the time of his death. Poe wrote this masterpiece as a way of saying that everyone he loved died, before he did.

Poe married his cousin, who was 13 at the time, but she had a serious illness after a few years and became an invalid. She died of TB quite young. The poem is usually interpreted as a fantasy on the early death of the young and beautiful.
