E.A.Poe's Basic Explication of "The Raven"

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I need to write a basic explication of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" and I have no idea what to even do. I don't understand the denotation and connotation, and how to put it in paragraph form. If you can just give me something to start out with and some basic ideas! Thank you SO much!!!

The Raven is referring to his lebsian dead wife. He is calling her because he wants to have a threesome with his pet, a raven. That's about it. Hope this helps.
