"where have you come from and what is your name?"
The Raven takes place in the speaker's chamber during a midnight in December.
The speaker is battling with the long lost love of Lenore.
The speaker hears tapping at his door and discovers no one is there. The raven enters the chamber through the window and sits on the bust of Pallas. The speaker asks the raven many questions, to which the raven responds with nevermore.
The raven tells the speaker he will never see Lenore again.
"will I ever see my dear Lenore again?"
The speaker is sad and angry at the raven's response and wants and tells it to leave. The raven does not listen and stays sitting.
"get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!"
