Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Should I open the door?
  • Climax
  • On a gloomy midnight in December in his chamber a man was reading a book trying to get the thoughts of his dearest love Lenore out of his head and nearly dosing off as something came a tapping on his door.
  • Falling Action
  • He hesitated to open the door, but his thoughts wouldn't let him wait any longer, so he opened the door to see darkness and nothing more. He closed the door and turned around to go read as someone came tapping on his door louder than the first time.
  • Resolution
  • He slung open the shutter to see a raven sitting there and nothing more. The raven welcomed himself in and perched himself right above the chamber door. The man examined the ugly little bird as it said "Nevermore".
  • Personification
  • The man burst into saying "You thing of evil, bird of the devil. Leave my house." As the bird keeps saying "Nevermore".
  • The raven is still perched above the man's chamber door as his eyes look like a demon is dreaming, the man still misses his dearest Lenore.
  • A type of personification in "The Raven" is when the raven is talking.
