Storyboard Text

  •     "Its principal feature seemed to be that of an excessive antiquity. The discoloration of ages had been great. The specious totality of old wood-work which has rotted for long years in some neglected vault, with no disturbance from the breath of the external air. ... extensive decay, however, the fabric gave little token of instability."
  • The Fall of the House of Usher
  • Eldorado
  • Mood: Upbeat followed by depressed
  • Gaily bedight, A gallant knight, In sunshine and in shadow, Had journeyed long, Singing a song, In search of Eldorado.
  • "Where can it be- This land of Eldorado?"
  • The Raven
  • Mood: "Uncanniness"
  • “Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I said, “art sure no craven, Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore— Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!” Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
  •       When the narrator first arrives to the house, on horse back, he realizes the deteriorating state the has is in.  The Usher family had begun to slowly dwindle and only the two Usher twins remained. He had arrived in order to help his old childhood friend with his mental and physical illness. We learn in the story that the reason for this illness is the fact that the Ushers sister is dying and he can't live without her, This causes the mood of depression in the story.
  • Annabelle Lee
  • Mood: Depressing
  • Mood: Sad and Dark
  • How come We cant love like that?
  •     The mood of the poem starts out up beat and exciting, but ends depressing as death becomes relevant. This gallant knight searches for the lost city of Eldorado. After venturing for years the knight becomes old and meets his pilgrim shadow. When death had finally over taken the night he learned that you must ride, " ‘Over the Mountains, Of the Moon, Down the Valley of the Shadow,  If you seek for Eldorado!" 
  •    The narrator is visited by a raven on a dark, cold, and stormy night. The speaker has no clue what to think of the bird as it perches on top of his lonesome chamber door, on the Pallas Athena. The bird keeps repeating the word "Lenore" leaving the narrator in despair, however the narrator doesn't know whether the bird understand what it is saying or if it's sign of life after death. This impression leaves the uncanny feeling along with a mystery of life itself. 
  •     In this Poem two teens fall in love. Their love is stronger than  anything in their kingdom and even the angles of Heaven were jealous of them.  One day the angels took away the Beautiful Annabelle Lee with the gust of wind. This put the narrator into an angry and depressed state.  The narrator lost the love of his life and becomes spiteful of the angles. This sets up the sad and dark mood of the poem. 
  • And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea, A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee; So that her highborn kinsman came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea.
