4 From the beginning of Poe’s life, he has always been a mysterious mad man. January 19, 1809 he was born in Boston, Massachusetts. There were four children. After the death of his parents, Poe was taken in by John and Frances Allan in Virginia. Edgar went to England with the Allan's in 1815. his first book was Tamerlane and other poems, published in 1827. He moved to Baltimore and published a second book in 1831. He married his cousin when she was but 13. After getting married the two ran to new york 1836, he published another book called the narrative of Gordon Pym. BIOGRAPHY OF POE

5 Their last place of residence, Fordham, Virginia had past away in 1847. Alcohol, he more frequently ingested made him have more erratic behavior. After a year, he went to get his “teenage-sweetheart” Elmira Royster. PART 2

6 The alcohol theory to me seems most accurate. In 1847, when Virginia died, he turned to alcohol. I feel Poe had to get some type of kidney failure or poisoning. For me the alcohol theory is best. YOUR THEORY ON POE’S DEATH

7 Annabel Lee, a love affair. Poe wrote the poem to show his love for the “fair maiden” to show what love they had shared and what feeling he had when she had past. A lively affair this poem is, a woman with Poe “in this kingdom by the sea”. They loved with a passion to be separated not. Poe's rage when she died, and subtly when she was living. Using the moon as a metaphor of her beauty. He uses insanity as well as talented poetic skills to bring out what him and his love had shared. ANNABEL LEE

8 Poe is known to be the father of horror stories from his demented and crudeness. I make connections with his stories because of his depressive nature and sorrowful writing. He is and artist with words and he speaks not only to my ears, but to my soul. Many not understanding Poe’s meaning, but also he had issues with his life. Not many understand what he is meaning. CONCLUSION (5+ SENTENCES)

9 In lively detail he shares how she died, quoting “That the wind came out of a cloud, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.” He explains what he saw, what he felt. He tells how the kinsmen took her away and put her corpse in a tomb. Poe left with sorrowful thought of his passing maiden. Over all I believe the poem was for his love, for what his beloved and himself had for each other. FINISH PARAGRAPHS ON YOUR FAVORITE STORY
