After the death of the beautiful Annabel Lee, a young man contemplates their love story—the passionate love in their youth, and the love that continues even after her passing.
Despite the fact that his first published works were books of poetry, during his lifetime Edgar Allan Poe was recognized more for his literary criticism and prose than his poetry. However, Poe’s poetic works have since become as well-known as his famous stories, and reflect similar themes of mystery and the macabre. “Annabel Lee” was the last complete poem composed by Poe, and was most likely inspired by his wife, Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe.
