Gothic Conventions Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
'Once upon a midnight dreary' 'I remember it was in the bleak December' the poem opens saying what the time is and in the second stanza he says it is winter time.
'Suddenly there came a tapping, rapping at my chamber door' He heard a knocking at his door, so he went to open it 'here I open wide the door' he opens the door and nothing is there.
As he opened the door there was nothing there, he closes the door and the tapping starts again 'soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before,' he realises that it isn't at his door 'surely that is something at my window lattice'
He opens it thinking that it is just the wind 'tis the wind and nothing more' however, a raven flies in 'with many flirt and flutter in there stepped a statley raven of the saintly days of yore.'
'Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door- perched, and sat, and nothing more.' The man starts to talk to the bird asking what he is doing here and why but the bird only replies with 'Nevermore.' He starts to go mad and tries to attack the bird and get it to leave, he also hears his dead wife's name being whispered 'Lenore?!'
I think that the raven stands as an sign of loneliness, grief and separation. He stands as the loss of the narrators Lenore, this means that the bird stands for death, the devil and evil.
