Storyboard Text

  • In "The Raven", Edgar Allen Poe creates a suspenseful mood through his choice of tone, figurative language, and setting description.
  • Mood - Sorrofwful
  • Poe uses descriptive words to establish a suspenseful and sorrowful tone. “While I pondered, weak and weary…” “Sorrow- sorrow for the lost Lenore” “Silken, sad, uncertain…” “Darkness there, and nothing more.” These examples show the sorrowful, aching tone of the poem.
  • Figurative Language
  • Another element that contributed to the suspense of The Raven was figurative language. Among these are anthropomorphism: “Quoth the Raven: Nevermore.” And imagery: “Swung by Seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor…” “And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming… and my soul from out that shadow shall be lifted… Nevermore!” These descriptions add to the suspense and horror of the poem.
  • Setting Description
  • Another element used is setting description. Poe goes into detail about the setting, which creates horror and suspense. “Once upon a midnight dreary…” “I distinctly remember it was in the bleak December and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.” 
  • In "The Raven", Edgar Allen Poe creates a suspenseful mood through his choice of tone, figurative language, and setting description.
  • These elements combined create the perfect blend of Poe-style horror: sorrow, paranoia, and uncertainty blending in a cocktail of suspense. Poe deftly uses these elements to paint a horrific and heart-rending tale of the sorrows of his lost Lenore.
