Annabel Lee

Annabel Lee


by Edgar Allan Poe

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


We're not sure we want to think too hard about this one. There's a lot of passion in this poem, but Annabel Lee starts out as a little girl and then she's dead. Still, it might be a little intense for the kids, especially with that creepy ending.
