Annabel Lee
by Edgar Allan Poe


We’ve got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you’ll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(3) Base Camp

The main pieces of this poem are simple and timeless. Love and death. Poe can't resist throwing in a few tough words (most people don't go around talking about sepulchres every day), and there is definitely some strange imagery in this poem. Still we think the classic story and the clear, direct language should make for an easy climb.
