Poe saw women as "angels of mercy" and men as cold, aloof observers of human suffering. Unfortunately, most of these "angels of mercy" were snatched away from Poe, usually by death: his mother, Eliza Arnold Poe; Jane Stanard, the mother of Poe's childhood friend; Poe's youthful fiancee, Elmira Royster; his foster-mother, Frances Allen; and eventually his wife, Virginia Clemm Poe. Thus, nearly everything Poe writes deals with the loss or impending loss of an angelic woman, leaving a tortured male lover behind to mourn. Only Poe's aunt/mother-in-law, Maria Clemm, did not desert him.
