What are the two poems saying?

I was just wondering if someone can explain in full detail, what Poe's "Sleeper" and "Lenor" mean. So it would be easier for me to explain. i would be greatful if i could have a response as soon as possible. Thankyou, Rachel

I dunno what he means by Sleeper, but Lenor was his little sister's name who, as the rest of Edgar's family, died of tuberculosis

Why do people insist on answering questions even when they have no valid information? Edgar Allan Poe had one sister. Her name was Rosalie, not Lenore (and certainly not Lenor). Rosalie M. Poe did not die of TB, and indeed outlived Edgar by almost 25 years.
