The way the poem flows is beautiful. It makes you want to keep reading. And the illustrations are gorgeous.
A dark poem about a man who has lost his love, Lenore. He hears someone knocking at his chamber door, but when he opens it there is no one there. He then opens the window and in flies the raven. To every question the man asks the raven the answer is always "nevermore".
The man's madness is palpable.
