In a kingdom by the sea, (B)
That a maiden there lived whom you may know (A)
By the name of Annabel Lee; (B)
And this maiden she lived with no other thought (C)
Than to love and be loved by me. (B) I was a child and she was a child, (D)
In this kingdom by the sea; (B)
But we loved with a love that was more than love- (E)
I and my Annabel Lee; (B)
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven (F)
Coveted her and me. (B) And this was the reason that, long ago, (A)
In this kingdom by the sea, (B)
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling (G)
My beautiful Annabel Lee; (B)
So that her highborn kinsman came (H)
And bore her away from me, (B)
To shut her up in a sepulchre (I)
In this kingdom by the sea. (B) The angels, not half so happy in heaven, (F)
Went envying her and me- (B)
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know, (A)
In this kingdom by the sea) (B)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night, (J)
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. (B) But our love it was stronger by far than the love (E)
Of those who were older than we- (B)
Of many far wiser than we- (B)
And neither the angels in heaven above, (E)
Nor the demons down under the sea, (B)
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul (K)
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee: (B) For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams (L)
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; (B)
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes (M)
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; (B)
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side (M)
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride, (M)
In the sepulchre there by the sea, (B)
In her tomb by the sounding sea. (B) Poem Analysis The speaker is bringing up a painful memory of a girl he loves named Annabel Lee. They loved each other since they were young, so much that even the angels in heaven were jealous. A wind comes and makes Annabel Lee sick, then her older relatives take her away and put her in a tomb away from him to die. The speaker blames the angels' jealousy for the death of his loved one. He then says that not even the angels or demons can keep them apart and he goes every night to her tomb and lays with her body by the sea. Classification Annabel Lee can be classified as Romantic because it has the 5 classifications in it. First strong senses, emotions, and feelings plays a role because the reader gets a strong sense of his love you Annabel Lee. He describes her beauty and how he never wants her to leave. The reader also feel grief when Annabel Lee dies because it takes a toll on him and the reader can sense that. The poem shows celebration of the individual by talking about Annabel Lee over and over again. He constantly talks about her beauty and he captures her beauty through the poem my using metaphors such as "My beautiful Annabel Lee; so that he highborn kinsman came and bore her away from me". Which his metaphor ties into the awe of nature. He talks about how the angels and heaven are jealous of her beauty so they send a cold wind to kill Annabel Lee. The cold wind that killed Annabel Lee is the important imagination. A cold wind can't really kill someone. In the poem he says "i was a child and she was a child" he is saying this to capture that they were young and in love. This shows interest in the common man and childhood because he is saying that there love was so strong and care free it was as if they were two young carefree people in love. Simile: Simile: “A love that was more than love”. The comparison that the attraction and devotion between Annabel Lee and the Narrator was even greater than the normal love between two people.
Metaphor: “The kingdom by the sea” is a metaphor for the joy they shared in life.
Imagery: “But I feel the bright eyes”, “A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling my beautiful Annabel Lee”, “The wind came out of the cloud by night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee”, and “I lie down by the side” are all examples of imagery. Alliteration: “Chilling and killing”, “Happy in heaven”, and “Demons down under”
Personification: “That the wind came out of the cloud by night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee” Wind can’t kill people.
Allusion: Alludes to Poe’s dead wife, Virginia. Poe married her when she was just 13 years old, so the poem might be alluding to this in saying that the speaker met Annabel Lee when they were children.
Hyperbole: “With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven coveted her and me”. Suggests that the angels in heaven do not love as intensely as he and Annabel Lee. How the literary devices contribute to the overall effect/success of the poem.
Similes such as “a love that was more than love” show that the attraction between the narrator and Annabel Lee was far greater than that of a normal couples love. “The kingdom by the sea” is a metaphor for the joy that they shared in life. The wind from “A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling my beautiful Annabel Lee”, helps the reader imagine the scene. Alliteration examples like “chilling and killing”, “happy in heaven”, and “demons down under”, help stress that these parts are important. Personification adds to the poem with parts like “That the wind came out by night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee” adds a mysterious or unrealistic feel to the poem. Allusion helps connect the poem to Poe’s life with Virginia. Hyperbole examples, like “with a love that the winged seraphs in heaven coveted her and me”, suggests that the angels in heaven do not love as intensely as he and Annabel Lee love.
