It seemes to me, after reading much of his work, that Poe was obsessed with death. This might have been brought on by his depression, I am not sure. But it also seemes to be that he was obsessed with his dead wife also. When you read his work like " Anabelle Lee " he is mourning over his dead wife. I hope this helps answer your question.

I'm currently doing a report on Poe too. My report his about how his personal life influenced his stories. When he was only like 2 or 3 both his parents died. when he was 20 his stepmother dies, and only a few years later his wife died. he saw death as such a normal thing because he was surrounded by it. because of this he was very depressed. for him it was sort of a "death in life" well, i hope that helped at least a little.
