I am sorry, but if only someone could get us a week or two advance. The early poem still considers the ideal(Helen) a saving refuge and source of light and inspoiration. the later poem has moved to doubt worse than a troiubled sea. In "The Raven" it is isolation and separation from the ideal which now is ghost of that peace and haunts him without hope or comfort.
