Halloween is coming, and I would like to post something about one of the greatest writers of horror tales.
Edgar Allan Poe wrote lots of horror short stories. He was great both at prose and verse. Today I'd like to tell you about one of his wonderful poems: Annabel Lee.
Many critics believe this poem was based upon his life. Poe married his thirteen-year-old cousin, Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe. She died very young, after suffering from tuberculosis for five years.
Be it as it may, my point is that Annabel Lee's story is both about love and death. It's quite a nice tale for Halloween, isn't it?
