The poem “The Raven” is probably one of Poe 's more famous works. The poem is summed up as the gentleman sitting in the chair attempting to find sleep and is startled (Poe’s Poetry). He can never find relief because of the recent death of his wife Lenore (“Poe’s Poetry”). The gentleman is asking the Raven, which Poe chose because of its human like sound making abilities, about his lost wife Lenore (Thomas Ollive Mabbott). When the gentleman asks the Raven if Lenore had gone to heaven the Raven says "Nevermore" (“Poe’s Poetry”).
“I voluntarily inflicted a certain level of insanity on myself” is a quote by Jonathan Franzen, which I believe is very true in the mental state of people. In the poem, “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator inflicts insanity on himself, however you can just as easily inflict sanity on oneself. Depending on your mental strength and durability you can slowly but surely return to sanity. The talking raven, in this poem, helps the narrator overcome this insanity. It helps the narrator on his journey back to reality and overcoming the constant mental state that he has been facing since the person he loved, Lenore’s, death.
Poe’s Life Influences in The Masque of the Red Death As Poe put it, “the boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” He is very correct indeed (“The Premature Burial”, n.d, para. 3). Just like his books which are chilling and mysterious so was his life.
In the book, on page 254-255, where V died and his Evey worried and scared. V for Vendetta vs Romeo and Juliet is that they die why did they die because they drink poison and want to stop the pain. I confused about how they make this comic kinda like Romeo and Juliet because it’s look like that love is not important to the author or else he would make it livable. I see that Romeo and Juliet connect to V for Vendetta because that’s it never end happily and the author is expressing how he feel to the novel.
All throughout the poem Poe uses dark poetry to present this gloomy dark poem. Right from the beginning we see the hopelessness as the narrator tries to stop thinking about his lost love Lenore.

Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb. One reason why Friar Laurence is at fault is because in Act Two, Scene Three, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet secretly. Friar Lawrence told Romeo he had doubts because they had just met, also, Romeo had just been so in love with Rosaline the day before, and should wait.
