Poe was sitting on his chair by the fire. Thinking about his lenore while looking at his books. He then heard knocking on his door. He was feared by the noise of the purple curtains.
He went walking to the door frightened. He was scared and nervous. Meanwhile he was still thinking about his love, lenore. He thinks it is just a visitor by the noise of knocking. He was not scared anymore and opened the door.
There was nobody at the door. Meanwhile he is whispering the word leonore, over and over again. He goes back into his room scared and nervous. Then suddenly hears the knocking even louder, but this time its coming from his window. Then he says '' surely that is something at my window'' then he goes to check it out.
He had to calm his nerves down before he went to open the window. later then, he goes and opens the window. Then a raven comes out of the window and stands on the bust on top of his chamber door. He talks to the bird and the bird replies with ''nevermore''. He is confused on why the bird talks
He looks at the bird and says he sees him. Then the bird sits on the bust and says ''NeverMore''. He says the birds eyes are staring into his soul. Then he thinks that there is a type of drug filling into the room to help him forget his lost lenore.
He starts to get furious at the bird and yells at him to go back where he came from. Then the bird replies with ''NeverMore''. Then he starts to scream at the bird even louder to never return again. Then the raven turns into a statue, he stood perfectly still. Then the raven casts out a shadow over him. This symbolizes that the man is forever being trapped in the shadows of darkness.
