Throughout the poem, Poe describes every detail of Annabel Lee, as angelical, with an eternal love, is captured in this poem. As I read this poem, I immediately captured the strong emotion he had of his wife Virginia. In the poem, Poe quoted “But we loved with a love that has more than love, I and my Annabel Lee,” this let us know that Annabel was actually married, in the poem a reflection of Poe’s marriage. The poem, is consider a ballad of a fairytale. Despite, of his gloomy darkness writing, and mysterious ways, he was able to capture a beautiful loving story.

However, it turned for the worst when she died. Because he had a lot of love for her, he was devastated and one can argue a bit of himself died along with her. This resulted in his naiveness “Of those who were older than we- / Of many far wiser than we-” saying nothing can separate them, not even death “And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side.” This poem was a remembrance of the Poe’s wife, Virginia Clemm, and how much it tore Poe apart.
The poem "Annabel Lee" best exemplifies the author's dark past with love, death, and drug abuse. Due to Edgar past, love influenced his writing drastically. The painful death of Poe's wife and cousin, inspired him to write "Annabel Lee". "In a kingdom by the sea" Poe describes the kingdom to be lonely and mysterious, but Poe also mentions Virginia being in the kingdom and filling it with pure love. Annabel Lee is known to be gentle, kind and persistent in love, throughout the poem, Annabel Lee's love has no complex emotion that may be dark or complicated.
David speaks of his love for God in songs and poetry. Love poetry will never cease as love is a constant feeling people have every day of their life, and no matter how long the world is around, love poetry will still be in existence. Love is continual, and will never die, because if it did, the world would not survive and chaos would strike the world as we know it. No matter how long poetry has been around for, you can tell that poets still have the same feelings you feel in today’s present day, and it helps you develop a better understanding of the pain love can cause, and the effect it has on everyday people. Love can be a wonderful warm feeling when shared.
Edgar was sent to the best boarding schools and later on attended the University of Virginia where he was successfully academic. He was forced to leave due to refusement to pay his gambling debts. In 1827, he moved back to Boston and enlisted in the United States Army where his first poems titled Tamerlane, and Other Poems were published. In 1835 he began to sell short stories to magazines and became the editor of the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond. His brother Leonard Poe was a poet before his death, and Poe was thought as being morbid and mysterious.
After we analyze some of Poe’s stories, we will come to know that Poe is a master of suspense because of the various techniques he uses in his writing, such as sound effects,ironies,figurative language, different sights, detailed description, unreliable narrator and repetition to create suspense. Born to a family of actors, Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1809. Within a year after his birth, his father abandoned their family. A year later, his mother passed away of tuberculosis. Edgar Poe changed his name to Edgar Allan Poe when the Allan family from Virginia took him in but he was never officially adopted.
He was never formally adopted, however, Edgar Poe was renamed Edgar Allan Poe when the John Allan family took him in after his mother deceased and his father forsook the family. The purpose of this paper is to examine the disheartening life of such an amazing poet, critic, editor and author and show how influential his success even after death can inspire us to try our hardest despite the circumstances. Considered to be a member of the American Romantic Movement, and best known for his mysterious tales and symbols of death, Edgar Allan Poe was the first notable American writer to try to support oneself through only writing, unfortunately, this caused him to experience a financially difficult life because his works weren't truly appreciated until after his death. Poe attended grammar school in Irvine, a boarding school in Chelsea, Reverend John Bransby’s Manor House School, and at the age of 17 he registered at the University of Virginia. However, this was short-lived as well as him working as a clerk and newspaper writer, because at 18 Poe enlisted in the United States Army under the false name Edgar A. Perry, but failed at being a and shortly thereafter, Poe began his writing career by anonymously publishing a collection of his poems, Tamerla... ... middle of paper ... ... his work lives on, so does the mystery of his death.
He portrayed her as if she had no ambition for life, other than to stand by Ernest. He painted a picture of Hadley as if she was nothing without him, and she continually reminded herself that. Later on towards the end of the book it seems to me he held her on a very high pedestal, regardless of how boring or lame he made her out to be; he really didn’t feel that way about her he loved her. The whole theme of the book is a recurring of his broken heart and that Hadley was the angel and he was the devil of their past relationship. Some may say that this book is fiction, but I don’t think it literally is.
Edgar Allan Poe’s fascination with the ideal beautiful woman, love, and loss is a resounding theme that is amplified in the works of his that see direct influence from his wife, Virginia. Of all Poe’s works, three contain consistent parallels between his life and the events of the works. The poem “Ulalume” tells the tale of a man walking a path in October in his “…most immemorial year…” when the man, who has forgotten the importance of the path he walks, remembers that he walked this same path one year ago to lay his wife to rest (Poe, Ulalume 101). Poe’s poem “Annabel Lee”, published in 1849-just after his death, breathes life into Poe’s ideal beautiful woman and the unending bond created by true love (Poe, Annabel Lee). While the previous two poems draw parallels through allusion and symbolism, “Elanore” presents influences in a more straightforward manner.
Something Unexpected Poe has written a several different stories relating to being buried alive, “The Premature Burial” and “The Cask of Amontillado” being the most popular. Edgar Allan Poe “was one of the seminal American poets and short story writers of the nineteenth century” he was an influencer for writers like Charles Baudelaire and Jules Verne. Poe lost both of his parents as a child and was raised with a foster family and lost his foster mom early, too. He lost many of his loved ones throughout his life including his wife shortly after he was married. All of these losses had a significant effect on him and influenced his stories ("Edgar Allan Poe - Biography").
