Storyboard Text

  • Speaker
  • Setting
  • Symbol
  • "Then into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, Soon I heard again a tapping, somewhat louder than before" (Line 31-32). The speaker of the story is never identified, although some would think it is some man that is going insane.
  • Imagery
  • "As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door" (Line 4). The setting of the story could be within the speaker's home because of the line stating "chamber door."
  • Refrain
  • "Nevermore."
  • "But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door" (Line 40). In this line the speaker makes the Raven symbolize a person of royalty.
  • Theme
  • "What this grim, ungainly ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore Meant in croaking 'Nevermore' (Line 71-72.) In this quote, the speaker gives a really vivid description of the Raven which shows imagery.
  • Quoth the raven, "Nevermore" (Line 90.) A refrain is a line that is repetitive within a short story or poem. The raven in the story continuously says "Nevermore" throughout the entire night that he is in the room with the speaker.
  • "And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming" (Line 105.) The theme of this story could be madness. The speaker is going mad because of the raven and mourning the loss of Lenore. This quote just shows that the speakers emotions are changing.
