Not the real thing, but edited to show the parts of it.

Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Tap, tap, tap, tap
  • Conflict
  • Tap, tap, tap, tap
  • Rising Action
  •     In his chamber; midnight; dreary; in his chair reading; bleak December; nearly napping;
  • Climax
  • "Nevermore."
  •     (before the bird arrives); Tapping at his chamber door; mourning for Lenore; tapping at his window lattice;
  • Falling Action
  • "Nevermore."
  • "Prophet! thing of evil!-prophet still, if bird or devil!- whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore, desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted- on this home by horror haunted- tell me truly, I implore!"
  •     The raven swoops through the window and perches on top of the chamber door; only says nevermore; the man asking questions to the bird, but replies "nevermore"; (ONLY one bird, but I am trying to make it look like it flew into the room)
  • Resolution
  • Talking to the bird and asking if he would see Lenore again; the bird replies nevermore
  • "Wretch, thy God hath lent thee- by these angels he hath sent thee Respite- respite and nepenthe, from thy memories of Lenore! Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!"
  •     The man gets angry at the bird; starts to yell at the bird with harsh-like words; bird replies nevermore;
  • "Prophet! thing of evil- prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us- by that God we both adore- tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, it shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore- clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore"
  • "Be that word our sign in parting, bird or fiend, get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore! Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken!- quit the bust above my chamber door! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my chamber door!"
  •     The man gives up; the raven still sits, never flitting, on top of the chamber door
