Storyboard Text

  • Exposition 
  • Tis some visitor tapping at my chamber door
  • Conflict
  • 
  • Sir 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
  • Rising Action
  • As the old man is reading something is tapping at his chamber door. He thinks it is only that and nothing more. 
  • Climax
  • Nevermore
  • Right now, the character is thinking of Lenore and how she is gone. He misses her. The character is full of sorrow as he thinks of her.
  • Falling Action
  • As the curtains are rustling, someone is knocking on his chamber door, so he tells them he was napping and that he was sorry he didn't answer the door.
  • Resolution
  • He is talking to the bird. He asked if he would ever see Lenore again. 
  • "prophet!" said I, "thing of evil-prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us-by that God we both adore-Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore- Clasp a rare and radien maiden whom the angels name Lenore." 
  • He started yelling at the raven after it said he would not see Lenore again. He also told it to leave him alone. 
  • "Be that word our sign in parting, bird or fiend," I shrieked, upstarting- "Get 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 from off my door!"
  • After he told the Raven to leave the top of his chamber door it stayed were it was. It sat there staring at him with eyes of a demon. 
  • And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamplight O'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted- nevermore!
