  • It was many and many a year ago,
    In a kingdom by the sea,
    That a maiden there lived whom you may know
    By the name of Annabel Lee;
    And this maiden she lived with no other thought
    Than to love and be loved by me.

    I was a child and she was a child,
    In this kingdom by the sea;
    But we loved with a love that was more than love —
    I and my Annabel Lee;
    With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
    Coveted her and me.

    – Edgar Allan Poe, the opening stanzas of "Annabel Lee"

    This poem serves as an important backdrop to Nabokov's novel Lolita.
