  • Exposition
  • Climax
  • Resolution
  • In the exposition, the poet introduces the speaker. He is in love with a woman named Lenore. Lenore has been missing, and the speaker misses her and is really sad. The setting of midnight December also adds on to the sad mood. The conflict is when the speaker hears a knock on the door. 
  •   I believe that the climax is when the speaker asks the Raven if he will ever see his love, Lenore, ever again and the Raven says "Nevermore". This means that the speaker will never see Lenore again. This is the point in the story where the turning point happens and the speaker realizes that Lenore is gone forever. "Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore! Quoth the Raven 'Nevermore'" (Poe, 14).
  • The resolution is when the Raven tells the speaker that he will never leave. Also, the speaker states that his soul has left him because of the horrible news. "And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throwshis shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted- nevermore!" (Poe, 18). In this text evidence, I found figurative language; metaphor (comparing the Raven to a demon).
