the way the poet has written the poetry

i like the poet's way of presenting the poem in a beautiful manner but ya
it's a fact that the poem was a bit long but it was intresting while
reading. i can say that if i have to rate this poem i will give 3 stars to
it i think it was presented well and i will not say it was an execellent
poem but it was a good poem i liked it!!!!

The Man was a genius. He had a dark past and led a terrible life. He was
wonderful with his words and how his life tormented him. If you wish to be
sickened by his words and thoughts read The Black Cat. It's truly a
sickening story, but I read it because I love his works

I like the poem because it shows a side of man that we all have but just
dont know it. It is described superbly. I laughed, I cried and I lost 15
pounds. A great read.

Interesting poem, I enjoyed it - though it took me a while to understand it
fully. It speaks about a beautiful subject; lost love, and the
acknowledgement of having to face the truth.

I find it hard to believe that this is a poem since its like 2 pages. But i
find it interesting how he gives a lot of details when the raven "speaks"
to him and how he sees the raven's actions.

The way the speaker sets the mood in the begining is essential.Sorrow,loss,
obssesion. I like how he discribes how this little bird is breaking his
loneliness and gets so upset about it's word: Nevermore, and calls it a
lie. Very interesting.

It is not a very interesting poem according to me - however it is not
boring. One of the things I like is the main theme of the poem, which is
undying devotion. It seems as if he would never stop thinking about her.
