Storyboard Text

  • Creepy Symbols
  • Bleak or Remote Settings
  • Characters in psychological and/or physical torment
  • Nevermore
  • Lenore
  •  The raven symbolizes a creepy symbol because all the bird does is sit on the bust and say the one word, "nevermore." The raven is creepy and its shadow hangs over the narrator's soul.  "What is this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore, Meant in croaking "Nevermore" pg. 315(poe)
  • Supernatural or otherworldly elements
  • It is midnight, the man has nobody over, by himself, and his house is all empty.   " Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary". pg.312(Poe)
  • Strong language full of dangerous meaning
  • Nevermore
  • The bird keeps saying nevermore to his questions, the ones that bother him the most our the when he ask if he'll ever see Lenore again and the bird just says nevermore. He is distraught over the fact that he won't see her again. " This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining." pg. 315(Poe)
  • Horrific themes
  • The man could not figure out if the raven was from heaven or hell. He doesn't know if it has been sent by God or came up from Hell and if it is evil or not. " Wretch I cried, thy God hath lent thee-by these angels has he sent these. Prophet! said I, thing of evil!- prophet still, if bird or devil! (Poe 315)
  • Every time the raven answers the mans question it just worries him even more. Especially the fact that he will never be able to see or touch Lenore anymore and he will just become more depressed.  " Tell this soul with with a sorrow laden if, within the the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore. " (Poe 317) He ask if he will ever see Lenore, and the words frighten him and make him angry.
  • The raven symbolizes death and that the man grieving, The raven's darkness symbolizes death, death becomes a constant reminder, it is an intruder and it goes on forever. The man will be lonely and unhappy. " Leave my loneliness unbroken-quit the bust above my door!(Poe 317)
