Storyboard Text

  • A man is sitting in his room, half reading, half falling asleep, and trying to forget his lost love, Lenore.
  • Suddenly, he hears someone (or something) knocking at the door. He calls out, apologizing to the "visitor" he imagines must be outside. Then he opens the door and finds…nothing.
  • This freaks him out a little, and he reassures himself that it is just the wind against the window. So he goes and opens the window, and in flies a raven.
  • The Raven settles in on a statue above the door, and for some reason. He asks for its name, but all the bird will reply is just one word. The Raven answers back, with this single word: "Nevermore."
  • The man then asks more questions. The bird's vocabulary turns out to be pretty limited, though; all it says is "Nevermore." Our narrator catches on to this rather slowly and asks more and more questions, which get more painful and personal. He is starting to get upset.
  • Nevermore!
  • The Raven, though, doesn't change his story, and the poor speaker starts to lose his sanity.
