Storyboard Text

  • In “The Raven,” Edgar Allan Poe creates a ghastly mood through his choice of tone, setting, and figurative language.
  • setting: early-mid 1800s, in December, in a quiet gloomy town at midnight, happens in the narrator's house in his chamber
  • “Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor."
  • The Narrator is and old man who is grievingHe is not reliable, he is somewhat dreary and very distraught. In the text it says, “While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,” which shows that he is not fully conscious of his surroundings at the time of this story
  • Nevermore
  • The Ravens quotes “nevermore” multiple times in the poem.
  • There are many similes in the poem, but one that stands out is "That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.”
  • Because Poe had a rough life, his tone is dark and uncanny
