I am happy you want to know.

It begins with a depressed man, crying over his lost Lenore. Then the Raven comes in and the man starts to talk to the Raven, but all the Raven says is "Nevermore". Now logically, if something keeps repeating you know what is going to happen next. But the man kept telling how he missed his Lenore and how he wanted her back, but the Raven keeps sawing "Nevermore". So he sets him self up to be even more depressed because the Raven tells the man that he will never have his Lenore.
