the story behind "The Raven"
-- Anonymous, September 15, 2001
From the horse's mouth go to www.eapoe.org to Poe's essay on "The Philosophy of Composition". Even that may sound suspiciously ingenuous but the emblematic nature of the Raven as everlasting and mournful remembrance is filled out in a fairly straight forward story monologue similar to first person tales.
