Storyboard Text

  • Annabel Lee
  • Title: The poem under the title of 'Annabel Lee' follows a young man, and the untimely death of his lover. At first, the story seems to be a simply about one's man tragedy, though after reading, it appears it may be about his madness over his lover's death. 
  • Connotation: "She was a child, and I was a child." could not only be referring to how they might literally children, but how they are young and have inexperience with true love. This is very similar to Romeo and Juliet.
  • Shift/Structure: The poem starts out by having a happy and pleasant feeling; it's a story about a man and the love of his life. Though one stanza later, the mood shifts into a sad and depressing one since the man's lover has died. Then, the mood shifts again, this time taking on a eerie and sickly sort of vibe, since the man continues to lie by his lover's grave and blames imaginary forces for his lover's death.
  • Paraphrase: This poem follows a young man and his lover, whom he loves very much. Then, the love of his life is suddenly taken away from him by death, and the man decides to blame er death on those who were jealous of them and their love, namely angels. But, the man grows happy again, as he realized nothing can prevent him from loving her, not even death. And so he sleeps by her grave every night. 
  • Attitude and Tone : The poem takes on a very solemn and eerie tone. It has a feeling of distortion, like something isn't quite right. It isn't that sad, yet it isn't happy either, and is more of a creepy kind of happy instead. 
  • Theme: I believe that the theme is Love, Death, and obsessing over what has already passed, or basically insanity. The poem is about the man's love and his lover's death, and the insanity he falls into because of it.
