This week in class, we’re reading "Annabel Lee" by Edgar Allan Poe.

Poe's poem, “Annabel Lee” was published in 1849 and is the last complete poem published by Poe before his death. It recounts the early romance of the speaker’s now-dead lover.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Death and Love as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How are we changed by love?" and "How do people face death?"
