  • Climax
  • Nevermore
  • Will I ever see Lenore again?
  • The narrator is in his chamber on a gloomy December night at midnight reading a book because he is trying to forget the death of Lenore. He is half asleep and then hears a tapping at his door.
  • Falling Action
  • Nevermore
  • Go back from which you came.
  • He is suddenly frightened and scared by the tapping. He gains up his courage and opens his door to only find darkness. He dismisses it and then hears tapping at his window. When he opens it, a black raven flies in.
  • Resolution
  • He questions the bird. He asks the raven why it was there, its name, and if he was sent by God. The bird just says "nevermore" every time. So the narrator asks the bird if he will ever see Lenore when he dies. The raven says '"nevermore." He is enraged by this.
  • One Literary Element
  • After throwing stuff around, he gets himself together. He asks the raven to return from where it came from but it only replies "nevermore."
  • The raven just sits still, perched on the statue above the narrator's door. Still where it was when it first flew in. It doesn't move and the narrator contemplates the raven's purpose. All he knows is "nevermore."
  • The statue above the chamber door was of the Greek goddess of wisdom. Which can also symbolize the raven.
