Tis a some visitor, tapping at my chamber door, only this and nothing more
Knock knock knock knock
There is nothing here
In this stanza Poe enters the narrator's house, perches on a bust above his chamber door, and repeats only one word, “nevermore.” The narrator soon learns the raven has come to stay and that he'll never be free of longing for his lost love, Lenore. It symbolizes mournful, never-ending remembrance.' Our narrator's sorrow for his lost, perfect maiden Lenore is the driving force behind his conversation with the Raven.
