In “The Raven,” Edgar Allan Poe creates a ominous, spooky mood through his choice of speaker, figurative language type, the setting, imagery, and tone.
The speaker creates a omnious spooky mood because he is an old man who is griefing which is sad. Since poe was unaware, he did not know what was going on around him. So he wasn't fully aware of what was going on giving a more omnious suspencful mood. Evendence from the story is “While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,” this shows how wasn't fully awake and was unaware to create a omnious mood.
