Annabel Lee (Annabel Lee) Annabel Lee is the title character of Edgar Allan Poe’s 1849 poem of the same name, published shortly after his death that very year, and is widely believed to have been based on his wife, Virginia. The subject matter of the poem is one of Poe’s most maudlin and favorite – the death of a beautiful young woman. Annabel was the life love of the narrator from childhood; her union with him resulted in so much happiness that it made the angels envious, and they caused her death. Death is no competition to this young man, however, as his love for Annabel will last until the end of time and they shall be reunited when the time is right. Until that moment comes, however, the poet lies by her side every night “… in her tomb by the sounding sea”. Morbid, perhaps, but also hauntingly beautiful, as is the name, Annabel.
Annabel Williams (Annabel: A Novel for Young Folk) Annabel Williams is the title character in L. Frank Baum’s juvenile novel of 1906, Annabel: A Novel for Young Folk. The famous writer of the Oz series published it under the pseudonym of Suzanne Metcalf. Annabel is an heiress who falls in love with Will Carden (the real lead character), a boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Will pursues a Horatio Alger-type path of hard work from rags to riches, while the beautiful and honorable Annabel stands beside him. Will has one great advantage in addition to his sterling character and Annabel’s loyalty – his father is really rich, and a twisty plot that bumps into international spy rings will reveal that convenient truth. Oh, well, we are sure that young Annabel would have been the doting young champion of Will even if he really were only a “vegetable boy”. Miss “Suzanne Metcalf, alas, brought us no more such stories.
