  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. ' 'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, 'tapping at my chamber door - Only this, and nothing more.
  • Falling Action
  • Presently my heart grew stronger; hesitating then no longer, 'Sir,' said I, 'or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore; But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping, And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door, That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -Darkness there, and nothing more.
  • Resolution
  • Prophet!' said I, 'thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! - On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore, Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted - On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore!' Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
  • Setting
  • 'Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting - 'Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore! Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!' Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
