Summary

A long time ago in a kingdom by the sea, there was a young and beautiful girl named Annabel Lee. She loved the narrator very much. The angels in heaven were jealous of and envied the narrator and Annabel Lee's relationship. That is the reason that a wind blew out of the clouds, killing Annabel Lee. Her relatives came to bury her in a tomb, but the narrator believes nothing can ever separate their souls. Every night, all night, he lays beside Annabel Lee in her tomb.

Characterization

In Annabel Lee, there is really only one main character. The other is the narrator, but he tells you nothing about himself. The narrator only uses one adjective to describe Annabel Lee—beautiful. An example of this in the story is, "For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams, of the beautiful Annabel Lee." Another example could be, "A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling, my beautiful Annabel Lee." He also calls her a maiden twice, in the beginning, which could be showing how innocent she is, that it was unfair for her to die so young.
