The Heartbreak That Killed “The Raven” is by Edgar Allan Poe. The Poem “The Raven” is gothic literature. This poem is about how a husband tries to deal with the lost of his beloved wife. Soon after the man starts to lose his mind and senses. The lost of his wife is so dramatizing for him that it starts to affect on his state of mind , also his physical appearance.
Thus, this sadness comes from the realization that he committed a sin when young. This sin, which caused him shame, is given because he gave into his bodily desires (loving Laura) rather than focused in his heavenly purity.

The Lenore his love can represent someone who is very dear to us and whom when we lose them we will grieve a lot. Poe on the other hand represent the true person who has to bear the loss and go through various stages of losses from denial to anger displacement to even depression. It was very wise of the author ton leave out the suicide part since it would mean that people who grieve after the loss of a loved one will always end up in depression followed by suicide. Though many a times readers and scholars wonder what was really going through Poe’s mind as he was writing this great masterpiece, an in-depth analysis of the language, symbols and the overall theme of the poem can be deduced. These five elements show us the psychological weaknesses of the protagonist in the poem The Raven.
The author uses Othello’s death to show all of the events that have led to this dramatic disaster. Shakespeare also uses Othello’s death to portray the theme of the power of vengeance. The idea that Desdemona would betray him hurt him deeply, but once Othello realizes he has killed her in vain he cannot live with the pain. After Othello’s death Cassio reminds bystanders that Othello is “full of heart” meaning he embodies love and kindness (V.ii. 776).
Gladwell in his piece, David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants, suggests people should use their negative situation to their advantage. He discusses this idea exemplifying people with dyslexia who used their unique abilities to their advantage when they struggled with reading and writing. Gladwell’s theory of overcoming difficult situations does not apply to Shakespeare 's character Hamlet because he is unwilling to overcome and improve, after his father’s death, leading to his ultimate downfall. At the beginning of Hamlet, King Hamlet has suspiciously died and his son, Hamlet is overcome by the death of his father, causing him to constantly grieve and not heal. Hamlet’s mother decides to remarry King Hamlet’s uncle, which Hamlet strongly disagrees with the marriage and views it as
Tone is the attitude of the poem and it is perfectly clear that this tone is a mixture of tragedy and depression. I get the clue of depression from the accident, family reaction to his death, and the title. The title is a wee-bit depressing because of the background to it. The title is from a Shakespeare piece called “Macbeth” the actual verbalization of the title is “Out, out, brief candle!” and that certain line is presenting the pointlessness of life, which does refer to the poem and creates an allusion. The sense of tragedy is also from his treatment by his family, but also, his death.

Love can bring you many different feelings. It can bring you happiness, or sometimes it can bring you heart break. For Edgar Allan Poe, it was both. All throughout Poe’s life he suffered through many ups and downs involving the pain of love from others. Learning to deal with a broken heart is the most important part of helping yourself recover.
“It is impossible to comprehend the intense anguish of loss, until death comes to someone you love” (Grollman, pg. ix). There’s nothing worse than experiencing the death of a loved one, and trying to adapt to a life without their smile, warm embrace, and presence. In this book, Living when a loved one has died, Rabbi Earl A. Grollman has comprised various poems about grief into four sections: shock, suffering, recovery, and new life. Before he transitions to a new chapter, Grollman provides a brief summary of what the grieving individual is going through, at a certain stage of grief.
