Many of the alarming inanimate objects that the speaker is accompanied by on this particular night have to do with the natural world as they apply fear and anxiety towards the speaker. For example, upon morning for his lost love Lenore, he hears ongoing noises in the night that are increasing in sound and instilment of fear. In the poem, Poe depicted the form of a man in his fear at the mercy of nature in his sanctuary: “Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, soon I heard again a tapping somewhat louder than before. […] “Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; ‘Tis the wind and nothing more” (31-36). Moreover, what one can grasp from these lines within the poem is that the wind was sought to be malice natural forces that surrounded the speaker, surrounded his home of peace and tranquility of mournful silence, just waiting to seize the opportunity to break the long drawn out of stillness within the night.
Once upon a midnight dreary, a man by the name of Edgar Allan Poe wrote “ The Raven”, a timelessly classic narrative poem that gives a popular image to the term gothic literature. His poem includes elements of suspense, the supernatural, and isolation that give the readers feelings of fear and eeriness, so commonly associated with the modern day horror story. It brings to life the story of a man isolated in his grief to the point of what some consider insanity. The narrator is surprised by an unexpected visitor; a raven. As the poem goes on, the man begins to think of the bird as a message from some omnipotent being that his grief will never end.
While our narrator mourns the death of Leonor he the peculiar things start to happen around the narrator, things that we can say "Oh, he 's just imagining it." But later something quite strange happens, and that is the appearance of an ominous and seemly harmless raven, until we learn that it can talk, sorta, it can only pronounce the word "Nevermore" which ends up irritating the narrator. As said, pretty simple, the narrator is sad, and then the devil bird comes to torment him even more, but a question remains, is the raven, the bird that speaks, actually real? Is it supposed to be a living thinking being in the story, or are we supposed to read between lines and realize that the narrator is not only imagining the bird talking to him, but descending deeper into madness due to the heartbreaking loss he suffered? Well at the end is impossible to get a definitive answer since everything can be interpreted in

And you are right, there is no evidence that proves this bird is Lenore's ghost? But you are missing one little detail, what happens between his checking on the door and the raven swarming in the room thought the window. The narrator looks into the darkness and mutters something "Lenore…" this is directly followed by a voice as soft as the wind that repeats the name. As soon as this happens the tapping in the window occurs. Then when the author talks to the bird he asks the raven questions and the raven just responds with ‘nevermore 'every time, but something happens in the second to last stanza that makes the narrator go

That would have to wait for Walt Whitman and Leaves of Grass (Gray 39). Barlow’s attempt at articulating the problems of writing an American epic in that work granted him a place in the line that leads to Song of Myself (1855), The Cantos and The Bridge (1930) (Ruland and Bradburry, 1991: 68). After the failure of The Columbiad, the need for an American epic intensified rather than lessened. Between The Conquest of Canaan (1785) and Alfred Mitchell's The Coloniad (1858) at least nineteen epic poems were published by American
