In the poem, “The Raven,” Edgar Allan Poe uses gothic themes and numerous literary devices to illustrate the depressed state of the narrator. The narrator is obsessed with the fact that his loved one, Lenore, is gone. The reader is then led to suspect that the narrator is unreliable and may have possibly killed Lenore – and that this could possibly be the reason for the narrator drowning himself in sorrow.
