The raven symbolizes gloom, despair, hopelessness, depression, doom ...

i see most people have a misunderstanding of the poem (no offfense) but as
far as i know this is what the poem is really about.
First he mourns his dead wife,then he hears the rapping and mistakens
it for the ghost of his wife,trying to calm himself saying just a visitor.
After the raven gets in he tells him to stop mourning his wife,but the guy
is stubborn and says no. And,if you reread and clarify the last paragraph
right,he will actually be saying that since that he will not be lifted to
heaven no more. Awesome poem :)

The Raven is an outstanding poem by such a great poet Mr.Edgar Allen Poe.I
love all of his poems,but this one favors me alot!I think it should be a
book or something 'cause it is an awesome poem no matter what!!! The reason
why would be because it is about a raven,but that isn't what I liked about
this poem,it is what the raven says,I quote "No more forever more."

i think the poem's about his wife dieing and a raven knocks on his door,
continuosly saying "nevermore" because he could "nevermore" see his wife
again, or talk to her.. etc
