Do the poems Annabel Lee, To My Mother, To Helen, and To F---- have anything in common? If so, what?

The short answer is that these are a representative group of poems to the main women in Poe's life: Virginia his wife, his mother-in-law Mrs. Clemm, Mrs. Stannard(or Sarah Whitman in the second "To Helen")and Fanny Osgood. Different relationships, different ideals. Read a biography to find their names. has some bakground.
