Storyboard Text

  • In "The Raven" Edgar Allan Poe  creates a horrific mood through his choice of figurative lagnuage, atmosphere, and tone.
  • Authors Tone: "But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore?"" This quote develops a melancholy tone because of the use of imagery with the words silence, ubroken, and stillness.  ""Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!--prophet still, if bird or devil!--" This tone gives off an angry message because of the figurative language relating the rave to the devil.
  • Figuative Language: "Back into the chamber turning, all my soul  within me burning" this is hyperbole because someones sould cannot actually burn. A burning sould is a symbol of grief.
  • Imagery: "Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore--"  Imagery is represented here by Poe describing the evil spirit he thinks haunts him wandering throughout the town at night.
  • Speaker: In the Raven, Poe uses a first person point of view using pronouns such as I and Me "while I pondered". This makes it seem more realistic and relatable that speaking in third person which makes it seem like something that can happen to anyone.
  • Setting: "Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor", "While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door." The setting gives off an eerie and creepy atmosphere with the use of the words bleack, dying, ember, wrought, and ghost.
