We have one vision of love that is experienced by people who live in this world. Poe describes a love that is so idealized that it exceeds the bounds of human love. The feeling of the narrator for Annabel Lee is far beyond anything that humans can imagine, so that it is "more" than love and perhaps more than any human could have imagined.
