Storyboard Text

  • Eldorado
  • Where is Eldorado? I cannot go on, I've searched everywhere! 
  • Ride until death, and you will find what you seek. For heaven is the greatest gift one could ever receive.
  • The mood changes from sadness and defeat to hopeful for the future, because Eldorado is a reachable place through death.
  • The Raven
  • Will I ever see my dear Lenore again?
  • Nevermore
  • Annabel Lee
  • Zzzz
  • Although the love of his life has been killed, the narrator has an appreciation for what he had. The mood is loving and appreciative because the narrator still dreams of the love that the two shared.
  • I love you so much, lets stay together forever!
  • The Fall of the House of Usher
  • "And, as his strength Failed him at length, He met a pilgrim shadow- 'Shadow,' said he, 'Where can it be- This land of Eldorado?'
  • 'Over the Mountains Of the Moon, Down the Valley of the Shadow, Ride, boldly ride,' The shade replied- 'If you seek for Eldorado!'"
  • "'Prophet!' said I, 'thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us—by that God we both adore— Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore.' Quoth the Raven 'Nevermore.'"
  • The mood is depressing, melancholy, and desperate. The narrator is talking to a bird and is desperately asking if he will ever see his love again.
  • "For the moon never beams without giving me dreams Of my beautiful Annabel Lee; And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
  • And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by my side Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride, In the sepulchre there by the sea, In her tomb by the surrounding sea."
  • Quote would not fit, see box to the right.
  • Something is not right with this house. I am getting a disturbing feeling.
  • The mood is mystical, gloomy, and daunting. The setting creates a dreary feeling that fills the reader with unease.
  • "I looked upon the scene before me — upon the mere house, and the simple landscape features of the domain — upon the bleak walls — upon the vacant eye-like windows — upon a few rank sedges — and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees — with an utter depression of soul which I can compare to no earthly sensation more properly than to the after-dream of the reveller upon opium — the bitter lapse into every-day life — the hideous dropping off of the veil. There was an iciness, a sinking, a sickening of the heart — an unredeemed dreariness of thought which no goading of the imagination could torture into aught of the sublime. What was it — I paused to think — what was it that so unnerved me in the contemplation of the House of Usher?"
