    The Raven is a highly stylized poem that reveals the narrator's slowly unraveling mind as he grieves over the death of his lover, Lenore. The narrator hears a tapping at his door and opens it to find a raven that can speak, although it only speaks one word: "Nevermore." The speaker begins to question his sanity, and cannot decide if the raven is meant to help him forget Lenore or if it is a demon sent to torture him. The poem contains themes of death, madness, and despair.
