you're pretty naive to call someone stupid for expressing their opinion as well. I think the raven could have something to do with death; poe could be extremely scared of death and the poem is him listening to death "knocking on his door". RIGHT ON!

well the raven as a poem could be seen as a metaphor for death, the raven as a character could be interpereted as death being something that is steadfast in its consistency (sp?) [i.e. we are all going to die], beyond that I don't know, I'd have to reread the raven and i don't feel like searching for it this very second..

I totaly agree with the person who mad e comment with me. Ur r pretty friggin naive to say soemthing like that. The Raven does have to do with deaht because I'm working on it also in my English class. It represents how teh narrator thinks of death as something never to come back from. Something to wallow an grieve on forever and to never get any closer from.

I know I sound really dumb for asking this but why does the raven say "nevermore?"Is it because he will never see lenore again? and people can interpret things however they want... like when I draw indefinite shapes. To one person it could be a bird and to some one else it could be a person dancing or any number of things. thanx 4 your time ~Stefanee
