"Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe is a narrative poem written over a hundred fifty years ago. The poem was most likely written about his wife, who had died the same way the title character in the poem does. Poe tells the story in first person, which makes it feel even more biographical. The poem also shows last glimpses of Poe as a romantic writer, which he left behind for his now famous yet darker pieces of literature.

Poe begins his story by painting a picture of a young couple of in love by the ocean. His tone is almost wistful as he explains the relationship with his wife before her death. He describes their relationship as being a true and deep love, despite how young they were. He claims that their love was so great, that even the higher angels of heaven, a place of perfection and beauty, were jealous of the love they shared. It is at this point of the story that Edgar's love turns to anger. He is angry that for a second time the woman he loves has died and his anger seems to be towards God and his angels.
