What is one commonality in all of Poe's short stories?

Death is probably Poe's most recurrent theme in fiction, treated in various manners for various effects (terror, humour, philosophy, irony, metaphysic, pure grotesque, literary satire, &c..., &c...), but not at all Poe's own "obsession". Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).
