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.

This poem is one of great sincerity by Poe, one that is a very personal
topic that he shared with the world. His thoughts and emotions are
presented in this wonderful piece of literary gold. All the symbolism in
it, the wonderful imagery, all provides an insight into every person's own
soul. By the way, I personally believe that nearly every symbolic object
or character in this story is multi-faceted, it does not have just one
meaning. Look at the Raven. A symbol of Grief, Death, Knowledge, the
phases of Life, all of these. Also, those who say this poem is garbage,
terrible, his worst, they present themselves as not understanding it. Why
do they believe this poem is so bad? Explain it please. Phillip, 16 years
