Storyboard Text

  • Fall of the House of Usher
  • Mood: Dark and Depressing 
  • Annabel Lee
  • Eldorado
  • 
  • "Upon the mere house, and the simple landscape features of the domain — upon the bleak walls — upon the vacant eye-like windows — upon a few rank sedges — and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees — with an utter depression of soul which I can compare to no earthly sensation more properly than to the after-dream of the reveller upon opium — the bitter lapse into every-day life — the hideous dropping off of the veil."
  • The Raven
  • “Nevermore.”
  • "The angels, not half so happy in heaven, Went envying her and me- Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know, In this kingdom by the sea) That the wind came out of the cloud by night, Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee."
  • 
  • Mood: Heartbroken
  • "Gaily bedight, A gallant knight, In sunshine and in shadow, Had journeyed long, Singing a song, In search of Eldorado."
  • 
  • Mood:  determined then followed by hopelessness
  • "Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;  Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he; ravens in wilderness But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door— Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door— Perched, and sat, and nothing more."
  • Mood: Gloomy and Superstitious 
  • “Other friends have flown before— On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before.”
