Most are short stories with varying qualities. Many of the stories seem incomplete, as in they start upon a story but rather than a next event, the story ends. Some stories crave an ending, while others are not so desiring. Poe is great at creating different worlds, different stories ranging from fantasy and science-fiction, to different realistic portrays of life such as being on a journey. The problem is that Poe is not good at continuing the stories, as they end abruptly. Many of the short stories have complex narrative but are too short be properly engaged with or understood. Many of the stories do have a dark narrative, where as the main character dies or has many what seem as insurmountable problems.
Most poems contain a description of what the poem is describing or a belief in why it was written.
