Annabel Lee

Edgar Poe was born in Boston on January 19, 1809. That makes him Capricorn, on the cusp of Aquarius. His parents were David and Elizabeth Poe. David was born in Baltimore on July 18, 1784. Elizabeth Arnold came to the U.S. from England in 1796 and married David Poe after her first husband died in 1805. They had three children, Henry, Edgar, and Rosalie. Annabel Lee' was the last poem Edgar Allan Poe wrote before his death in 1849. He sold the rights to it while he was still alive, but it was not published until after his death. Haunted as he was by the loss of many women in his life, including his young wife who died two years before him, Poe often wrote about women dying. 'Annabel Lee' is no exception. Since the poem was written after Poe's wife's death, it is believed that it was probably written for her. The poem is narrated by a young man who describes himself as a 'child.' The man falls in love with a young woman named Annabel Lee. They live in a kingdom by the sea. The narrator and Annabel Lee are very happy and very in love. Their love for each other is so intense, in fact, that the seraphim in Heaven become jealous and murder Annabel Lee, by sending a wind that chills her to death. The narrator is devastated but does not give up on their love. He believes that his soul is inseparable from Annabel Lee's. Every night he dreams of her and sleeps next to her in her tomb.
