Poe is campy but affecting as always--whether you've had this feeling of young love in a kingdom by the sea or not, its loss or lack must bite--and the unusual and slightly melted faces in Tibo's art are weirdly effective in the first happy part, though a bit goofy and inappropriate after it all goes wrong and she dies and etc. ( )

In a kingdom by the sea.

Lindo poema de Poe, essencial pra quem quer ler/reler Lolita. ( )

A very haunting yet beautiful poetic work by Poe. It is chilling as he tells about love gained and lost. His grief is evident by his words that are everlasting as his love for Annabelle Lee was. ( )

Edgar Allan Poe’s dream poem is as close to music as words can ever come. First published on October 9, 1849 – two days after Poe’s death – this haunting, lyric poem is thought to have been written in memory of Poe’s young wife, Virginia, who died in 1847. Gilles Tibo has set the poem in his native Quebec, where the narrator and his childhood love Annabel Lee discover the beauty of the rugged, wind-swept Gaspé Peninsula. But when Annabel Lee dies and is borne away as mysteriously as she had come, the dream goes on, refreshed each time that the moon beams and the stars shine down upon the great rock of Percé that becomes her sepulcher.

"Annabel Lee" is the last complete poem composed by Edgar Allan Poe. Like many of Poe's poems, it explores the theme of the death of a beautiful woman.
