Poet tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore". The poem makes use of a number of folk and classical references.

    This poem is good for a short story, that allows for quite a bit of optional thinking. When reading poems, I think of what they mean to me, and what the poem could have meant to the poet.

    I love this piece by Edgar Poe. How he was able to portray someone he loved that is dying in the next room while a bird is telling him he will never see her again...what an amazing mind.
