In “The Raven,” Edgar Allan Poe creates a haunting mood through his choice of author’s tone, setting, and figurative language.
QUOTE:Leave my loneliness unbroken!--quit the bust above my door!Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!" Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."
Since this quote represents a tone of being hopeless as he is begging for the bird to heal his broken heart and take his loneliness away, it is contributing to the haunting mood as he is being haunted by his never ending loneliness and by the bird which he desperately wants answers from.
QUOTE:Till I scarcely more than muttered: "Other friends have flown before--On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before."Then the bird said "Nevermore."
