It is about a beautiful but painful memory of a long-lost love named Annabel Lee (“Annabel Lee Summary”). She was known very long ago when she was younger even as a child the author still fell in love with Annabel (“Annabel Lee Summary”). The poem goes on to say that they were so in love that the angels above were very jealous and angry of their love. This is why the author blames them for killing Annabel Lee and taking her away from him. He believes that he is being treated wrong by the angels. All he wants is Annabel back because he is still deeply in love with her. The author would do anything to get his love back. He does not care what the price will be he just wants to be with her again and be able to feel her. The author still sees Annabel in his dreams when he goes to sleep. He will not be separated from her no matter the cost. He deeply wants us (the readers) to know his love for Annabel Lee and how much he truly loves her despite that they were only kids when they first fell in love.
