"Annabel Lee"--Virginia and the impact of her in his life

"To My Mother"--Mrs. Maria Clemm and how she was a mother to him

"Eleonora"--Poe, Virginia, and Mrs. Clemm and how they were together

I think he used his life to put real feeling into his works. He ussed differnt names to represent people in his life and how they impacted him.

the symbolic maeanings of poe's poems and stories are about how he has created love,lost love through out his life. but he stills remains in love whether it be dead or alive. he also talks about his ideal beauty for women. he also has these obesstions of writing about this love that he has for someone that is dead. he see love in everything. his horror tales and poems can be linked to the loss of love he has aquired through out his life.
