The supreme love and the supreme tragedy of Poe's life IN his hauntingly beautiful poem "Annabel Lee," Ed gar Allan Poe immortalized his love for his child wife, the gentle, delicate creature whose devotion furnished the one bright chapter in his ill starred life. And even in this, the tragedy which seemed to dog his every step came to rob him of his happi ness. . . "the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee."
