What would the 13th stanza in Poe's poem "The Raven" mean translated into a more modern language. I am having difficulty understanding this. Thanks

The narrator is trying to figure out what the bird means by saying nevermore, and if it is symbolic. When he is talking about the chair, it was his wife's chair and he is sad because she will never sit there again.

Are you sure Lenore is his wife? It nevers states that in the poem - she could be his daughter, for instance, could she not?
