He is so paranoid that Lenore could comeback to haunt him for what he did to her. Fortunately, it’s not Lenore and a raven instead. The Raven symbolizes the devil, whom is there to make him pay for what he did, and make him hurt like he made Lenore hurt.
Henry states that the other men of the convention have different views than his but it would be "treason" if he did not speak his proposition. He continues, saying it is the colonists' duty to follow his call to action. He then infers since he is "guided... [by] the lamp of experience" the others should trust his views. Next he builds up the emotion in the room by using imagery and allusions to call to mind the Britain's recent actions. Henry remarks that the colonists' false hopes in the British "will prove a snare to [their] feet."
His time spent in reading at night describes denial toward his loss, trying to pretend it didn't happen by losing himself in “...quaint and curious volume[s] of forgotten lore”(Line 2). When he goes downstairs to check if someone is at the door, he tries to rationalize that it is just some random person knocking at the door, but when he opens it to find no one is there, his first reaction is to say “Lenore”( Line 28). He was, and still is until the raven shows up, hopeful that it was all a bad dream, and that Lenore would just show up on his doorstep, unharmed and still breathing Then, when the raven shows up, it receives a respite from it’s long journey from the Underworld consequently, the arrival of the Raven gives the Narrator temporary rest from his loneliness. “It is noteworthy that the raven is perched on top of a statue of Pallas Athena, the goddess of wisdom. This gives its constant refrain of "Nevermore!"

McNamara says he believes his words would appear powerless especially to othose who donot understand the concept of war and also misunderstand him since human are naturaly war-like. He futher tells us that he knew that if at that time he had spoken of it, he would have been damned and if he didnot he would have still been damned but he will prefer to be damned if he does not. In conclusion we can say that the Fog of War is a set of lessons that McNamara has experience toward his working period and its shows us that when it comes to war human are not rational in any aspect and that the list mistake or wrong decission might lead to a nuclear war or a global war
“Remember my name; I am Javert” (63) This is yet another tactic. Javert knows that Valjean despises him. In showing dominance, he wants Valjean from breaking the law to avoid meeting him again. Later on, we see Javert clearly recognize Valjean after he rebooted his life. “It is strength.
On a “midnight dreary,” the persona reads in an attempt to forget the passing of “ the rare and radiant maiden … Lenore” when he hears a knock at his door. Although the sound startles him, filling him with “fantastic terrors,” he eventually builds up the courage to answer the door, only to find nothing but darkness outside. As the persona stares “deep into … [the] darkness,” he starts “wondering, fearing, / [d]oubting, [and] dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream” before whispering the name of his lost love Lenore. Many of the words the speaker uses have negative connotations, which contribute to a dark, foreboding mood. For example, “darkness” implies mystery, obscurity and the presence of evil, while “fearing” and “[d]oubting” suggest insecurity and a lack of confidence.
Following fear can lead to a person going against what she believes to avoid negative consequences. An ideal example of when fear appeared to trump love is in Harry Potter.
