From the encyclopedic series AMERICAN WRITERS, p. 418 "His [Poe's] ethereal heroines are mere reflections of his beloved mother too soon taken from him. These...lucid and translucid women, lucid like himself and translucid like his mother, inspire his heroes with intellectual rather than sensual passions, with passionate friendship rther than desire...He and his heroes could only love sick or dying women like his own mother. Love and death are indissolubly merged both in his works and in his life."

Hope this helps. Are you doing a paper or teaching Poe?

Maybe but I'm not sure, I think it's got to do with everyone who died in his life. Like as you said his parents, miss.poe, his first love and some other chiks who died, most of them were girls. And he loved them very much.
