The Raven : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

What is this poem about? What does the Raven finally come to represent?

well see its like this of course, the raven is a like a chewed up piece of gum. sometimes it sticks to your shoes, and other times it makes your mouth taste fresh like a cool apple breeze. but what i really think it represents, is all the good things in life. like the birds and the bees, or in other words the good ol' tits in life today. luv peace out.

it has to do with the release of aggression from all of the bullshit that life has to offer and at the same time take away and yes this is better shown through sex mostly!
