once, in midnight dreary, the man pondered so weak and weary
then a sudden tap emerged from his chamber door and with fright and confusion, he open the door, but no one was there. he then heard "Leonore" being whispered but convinced himself that it was all in his head.
moments later, he then hears tapping on his window. a raven makes a great appearance and states itself as "nevermore"
with his great lonesomeness, he starts to speak to the raven and asks to know who sent him and what was its purpose
he proceeds to ask the raven if he'd see Leonore again. he then grows furious since the bird wouldn't answer him and would only reply with "nevermore"
in the end, he is left hopeless and asks the raven to leave him all alone as he proceeds to mourn over Leonore
