The Raven

First of all, why can't people write more meaningful comments than, 'it
rocks, dude'.

The Raven rocks, dude! (sorry, just kidding)

This is a poem to read in dim light when you are in the right mood. Read
it as if you are the person in the poem, going insane. It is downright

'Nevermore' That one word repeated by the Raven, is all that is left of
Lenore. Nevermore, nevermore. It haunts the man and drives hiim insane.

i truly dissagree with those who think this poem is gothic. Its more about
the dispair of Poe. Grief is an emotion that doesn't really wan't to leave.
Just like the raven wouldn't leave.
