Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)Edgar Allen Poe
Poe stayed in Baltimore from 1831-35 and began writing more seriously. In 1836 he married his 13 year old cousin, Virginia. He had been working as a journalist since 1831, earning a bare minimum to survive, and from 1835-37 edited the Southern Literary Messenger.
His short stories reveal a fascination with emotional extremes, particularly fear, though his essays show that he was capable of being objective and critical.
“Annabel Lee” was written shortly before Poe’s death. It is probably the last poem he wrote.
It is a simple poem, yet it deals with the effect of a woman’s death on the persona just as the death of a loved one affected Poe in real life.
Repeating sounds usually at the ends of poetic lines creates rhyme. Rhyme usually occurs at the end of lines that are close together in a poem.
When a word in the middle of a line rhymes with a word at the end of a line, it is called internal rhyme. This type of rhyme occurs in this poem several times in the last stanza.
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other
Than to love and be loved by me.
And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful ANNABEL LEE;
So that her high-born kinsmen cameAnd bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchreIn this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven, Went envying her and me –
Yes! -that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my ANNABEL LEE,
Of those who were older than we –Of many far wiser than we –
And neither the angels in heaven above, Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful ANNABEL LEE:
For 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;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side Of my darling - my darling - my life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea, In her tomb by the sounding sea.
