Death had a great toll on his writing. when his wife died he wrote a poem about Annabel Lee. Also when she died he wrote a poem that (Dream Within a Dream) he was serverly disturbed of the deaths of his wife. That is just some of the motivation that he had for the poems. it also made him write some of the phycological thrillers that he had written about. He wrote alot about hardships of life and losing. Valorie GOOD LUCK!!
