About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.

Haven't read Poe since school and just wanted to read Annabell Lee. Good book to get refreshed on a few of his poems.

The Raven takes the reader into the depths of a sick and dark mind; the poem embarks you on a journey into a twisted delusional man¿s own fears. This poem intruded me with its use of dark and visionary words and its explicit detail in describing the situation. The rhyming adds to its literary value and the way the poem is set up is to emphasize the change of personality in the man. It goes from a non-chalant attitude toward the tapping and eventually the man becomes insecure and displeased by the mocking of the Raven. My favorite stanza was the one that starts of with ¿Deep into that darkness peering long I stood there wondering, fearing, doubting¿¿ this shows us the fear that this tapping has inflicted upon the man and his reaction to such a eerie act. In conclusion I recommend this poem because it allows the reader to dive head first into experiencing true insanity in words. The well constructed layout of the poem makes it flow easier and lets the readers attain the messages in a motion-like sense.

The Raven reflects how Poe's life was surrounded by death and despair. In this poem, he is haunted by the death of his beloved Lenore and even though he tried to keep his mind off of her by reading forgotten lore, he could not help but think of her. The Raven tells of how Poe's life was affected deeply by the loss of his wife Virginia and how the ones that were close to him had all died from some form of sickness. At the end of the story, he realizes that he will never truly find the answers to what he was looking for.
