Storyboard Text

  • Introduction: Poe hears something tapping and he thinks it's the spirit of his wife. When he whispers her name, he hears an echo of it, but chooses to ignore it. He checks his window and there's a raven!!!!
  • Conflict & Rising Action: Poe discovers that the raven will only respond with "nevermore", when he asks it several questions about basically every topic.
  • Climax: He believes the raven is a prophet, a "thing of evil". He becomes angry when he asks if Lenore is an angel, and the raven responds with "nevermore".
  • Falling action & resolution: "Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!" Poe is angry because the raven answered "nevermore" to his question about Lenore, so he tells it to leave. In the end, he talks about how the raven is still there, and how his soul "shall be lifted nevermore".
