The main character lost all his hope to ever find his answers to the questions about his beloved Lenore and her well being and he lost his soul and life to the black bird’s shadow. The raven brought fear, anger, grief, sorrow and hopelessness in the protagonist’s life until the main character lost the battle to him and dies. In consequence, the raven represents death. Death is a dark topic that can make people really uncomfortable, but Poe still uses it in “the Raven”. Instead of being uncomfortable, his great poem is still read and loved by many.
Poe carried his idea of death throughout these poems to capture his common themes, which was death and loss. In “The Raven”, the narrator wrote this poem during the romantic movement.

Evidence of this can be seen in both “Song” and “Remembrance.” Brontё’s “Hope” depicts the speaker’s feelings towards the emotion itself, revealing its cruel nature.
