For poet Stephen Murabito, artichokes are a food of regret. Laura Brown prepares them a little differently, with Murabito 8767 s poem 8775 Alone with Artichokes. 8776
Marriage was important to the Puritans, who felt that the procreation and proper training of children were necessary for building God's commonwealth. However, the love between wife and husband was not supposed to distract from devotion to God. In Bradstreet's sonnets, her erotic attraction to her husband is central, and these poems are more secular than religious:
The Story Behind the Poem:
Don&rsquo t eat cheeseburgers immediately before going on amusement park rides when I was a kid I found this out the hard way.
Long ago, in a kingdom by the sea, lived Annabel Lee , who loved the narrator. Both she and the narrator were children but knew love more powerful than that of the angels, who envied them. A wind chilled and killed Annabel, but their love was too strong to be defeated by angels or demons. The narrator is reminded of Annabel Lee by everything, including the moon and the stars, and at night, he lies by her tomb by the sea.
There is not a particular setting but we do know that it al takes place after the sun goes down. Everything about this poem is dark. I got the sense we are in some small town in the black of night.
The key to a strong introduction for an essay is the hook or attention grabber. The hook comes at the very beginning of the essay, and its job is to draw the reader in and get them interested in what you have to say. For an essay about poetry you may choose to start with a line or two from the poem, but make sure you refer to the lines at some point in the essay. Another option is to write an interesting statement about the poem’s place in culture or history. Alternately, you could write a rhetorical question that gets the reader thinking about the context of the poem.

The name Annabel Lee continues the pattern of a number of Poe s names for his dead women in that it contains the lulling but melancholy L sound. Furthermore, Annabel Lee has a peaceful, musical rhythm which reflects the overall musicality of the poem, which makes heavy use of the refrain phrases in this kingdom by the sea and of the beautiful Annabel Lee, as well as of the repetition of other words. In particular, although the poem s stanzas have a somewhat irregular length and structure, the rhyme scheme continually emphasizes the three words me, Lee, and sea, enforcing the linked nature of these concepts within the poem while giving the poem a song-like sound.
The poem specifically mentions the youth of the unnamed narrator and especially of Annabel Lee, and it celebrates child-like emotions in a way consistent with the ideals of the Romantic era. Many Romantics from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries viewed adulthood as a corruption of the purer instincts of childhood, and they preferred nature to society because they considered it to be a better and more instinctive state. Accordingly, Poe treats the narrator s childhood love for Annabel Lee as fuller and more eternal than the love of adults. Annabel Lee is gentle and persistent in her love, and she has no complex emotions that may darken or complicate her love.
