Well the raven is just a nice poem made to create a certain emotion in the reader. It is not really trying to say anything. It deals however with the narrators lost of his love Lenore and he either has a dream or a visit by a minion of hell of somesort. The poem shows the preogression of the man into insanity. This is a common theme in Poe's work. The man believes that the Raven was the bird of a man that said showed him to say nevermore. But the raven keeps repeating the name and he begins to lose it. And well anyways you could find symbols with the statue in which the raven sits, that of Pallas Athena. Or the raven himself. But really as Poe himself said its just a poem that sounds good, is dark and just makes the reader feel a certain way. It also deals with self-torture as Poe himself said. Although the raven provides the one word it is the man who gives the answer harming himself. Oh and joking about those ppl isnt funny btw. And yeah anyways Im not taking the US side either. Both have done atrocities. We dont live in a perfect world but joking about something like that is not funny. Anyways I dont know why I responded to this, Im just doing a Por project for school myself. Anyways email me if u want or if u got msn add me to talk about anything. Ok bye, hope I helped. And no Im not a 35 year old stalker, Im 17 and in mexico. Bye.

Iam sorry but I came on this web site to get a summary about "The Raven" and the only reason we are now talking about bin ladin is because some dumbass who should be shot said a retarted ass comment that bin ladin is great. When we all know he is a piece of shit who might be dead or is running like a pussy from the United States government. So fuck you Iraq and fuck you bin ladin lovers.
