The Raven Plot Diagram
Transcript of The Raven Plot Diagram
Caroline Hugh, Akshadha Lagisetti, and Zach Shuber
The narrator is grieving over the loss of Lenore, his loved one. The setting is in the narrator's house and it is midnight on a bleak December day.
"The Raven" is a narrative poem by Edgar Allan Poe.
In this Prezi, we will cover the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution of "The Raven". We will also go over the type of conflict in the poem.
1. While the narrator is lamenting, he hears knocking on his chamber door. When he opens the door, no one is there.
When the narrator asks if he'll ever see Lenore again, the raven simply replies, "Nevermore."
The narrator, angry at hearing the raven's reply, yells at the raven to leave, but the raven replies, "Nevermore."
The raven never leaves, and the narrator's soul will never be whole again.
Conflict in "The Raven"
The conflict in the Raven is character vs self, because the narrator is struggling within himself-he is grieving and unable to cope with the loss of a loved one.
2. As the narrator opens a shutter, a raven flies in and perches on a bust of Pallas.
3. The narrator starts questioning the raven, but the raven only replies, "Nevermore."
You can find the most exciting part, and then you know whatever leads up to that is the rising action. Whatever follows the most exciting part is the falling action, and the part that wraps up the loose ends is the resolution. The part that introduces the setting and characters is the exposition.
