Storyboard Text

  • In ¨The Raven¨ by Edgar Allen Poe he creates an eerie and creepy tone through the use of figurative language theme and key words.
  • The Raven is a symbol of death and sinister omen, Poe makes this clear through the terrorizing view the protagonist has of the bird.
  • Edgar Allan Poe uses imagery from words like weary, dreary, bleak, dying, sorrow, darkness, stillness, mystery, ebony, grave, to prove his point that the theme is eerie and creepy.
  • The main character in the poem is a m man who has lost his beloved Lenore, he is depressed and lonely; he shifts from being in control to on edge, this makes the reader question the reliability of the story telling. The depressed character adds a creepy feeling in the poem.
  • Poe uses lots of personification in "The Raven" because it shows the mental state of the main character. For example in the text it says" lamplight gloated." We know that a lamplight cannot actually gloat, so because of this we can tell that something is wrong with the speaker. The mental state of the character adds a confusing eerie feeling to the poem.
