Poe creates this ambiance by using rhyming, alliteration, and repetition to heighten the mood of the poem, as well as the strange, frightening raven as a sort of grim-reaper figure. In my opinion, Poe was an architect with his words, building a revolutionary poem such as this, stimulating spine-tingling creepiness into the bodies of readers nearly 300 years later.
