I am stuck on these two questions(can you check #1 one over for me?)! For the poem Annabel Lee;
1. What romanticized explanation does the speaker give for the death of his love, Annabel Lee?
He tells us that angels from heaven were jealous of their love relationship, and took his lover away into the clouds, killing her. (Can I add more to my answer?)

2. In line 15, what might the "wind" represent in Poe's life? How does the fact that Annabel Lee does not die until line 26 represent the reality of Virginia Poe's death?
(Stuck on this one- help please)

Here is the poem for your convenience:

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love¡ª
I and my Annabel Lee¡ª
With a love that the wing¨¨d seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
Went envying her and me¡ª
Yes!¡ªthat was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we¡ª
Of many far wiser than we¡ª
And neither the angels in Heaven above
Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling¡ªmy darling¡ªmy life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea¡ª
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

  1. The wind seems to represent the illness that caused Annabelle's death. You take it from there.

    I think your answer to question 1 is okay. Taking her away is a romanticized metaphor for her death.

  2. The wind seems to represent the illness that caused Annabelle's death.The reality of Virgina's death is reflected by Annabel Lee's death in line 26 as her and Poe have been sweethearts for a long time, before suddenly succumbing to illness. (Does that work? What is your response?)

  9. #2 In the poem, the wind is responsible for Annabel Lee's death. In Poe's real life, his wife, Virginia, began to hemorrhage from her lungs while she was singing at the age of 19. She was later a "tubercular invalid" for 5 years before she died. Therefore, the tuberculosis issue in her lungs robbed her of her breath ("wind"), which caused her death.
