No one has ever had a bird named "Nevermore" fly into their house.
The narrator opens his window and a raven flies in. The raven ignores the narrator and sits on a statue of Athena.
He will probably leave tomorrow.
The narrator feels relieved that it is just a bird. He asks the bird what its name is but the bird only replies, "Nevermore".
The narrator is surprised to hear the bird talk but he is confused because the bird didn't answer his question. The narrator is amused by the bird and has no idea what the bird is saying .
The raven refuses to say anymore but the narrator has a feeling that "nevermore" holds a lot of meaning to the bird. The narrator says to himself that the bird will abandon him tomorrow like all his other friends. The narrator becomes depressed again.
The bird replies "Nevermore" to leaving. The narrator imagines that the bird's former owner was depressed and only said, "Nevermore".
hmmmmm was your owner sad?
The narrator is still fascinated so he pulls up a chair. He continues to try and figure out what "Nevermore" means.
