  • 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.
