Storyboard Text

  • Right then my soul grew stronger; waiting no longer, “Sir,” said I, “or Madam, I ask for your forgiveness ; But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came hitting,And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,I was barely sure I heard you”—then I opened the door widely ;— Only darkness was there and nothing else.
  • PARAPHRASE
  • The story continues steadily while this certain part gives the first start of reaching to the climatic point in the story, which is when the "new guest"; the Raven. The speaker is only aware of a visitor at his door, however the visitor is a special one who will give the speaker a new feeling towards sorrow.
  • CONNOTATION
  • The tone is still relaxed and calm so far. It may feel a little anxious at first because of the new found curiosity of whom may be waiting at the door at this time of the night. As he simply walks over being merciful to his slumber's obstructor.
  • TONE
  • His mood while acknowledging a stranger was curiosity with confidence as he got up fearing nothing. His mood while opening the door and finding no one however, we can assume implied disappointment and wonder as any normal human being would.
  • SHIFTS
  • TITLE
  • The Raven being observed and interpreted as a object of darkness, trouble, and haunting evil. So that type of view gives that same influence on the reader giving them the feeling of the expectance of eventual doom and further troubles that would come about to the speaker. So the title brings all this drag.
  • THEME
  • The poem "The Raven" is a poem written in the tone setting of agony. The Gothic author Edgar Allan Poe usually writes with a scary dark mood, so we can assume that this story/poem will end with that certain outcome. The story is written in the perspective of a distraught man who is mourning over the loss of his love, Lenore. The man is sitting at home while a spooky bird who has the ability to speak, pays him a visit. No matter the words the man utters, the bird chooses to remain stubborn with his words and only utters "Nevermore". The man then thinks the bird is present to haunt and mock him, and that he is of satanic descent. As the man shoos, the bird stays. It's a little bit like the Edgar Allan Poe quote "The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?"
