Transcript of TPCASTT

"A man loses someone he loved named Lenore.
He is very devastated. However one night in December when he is sitting in his room, he hears a knock. A raven comes to visit and makes him very angry because he tells the man he'll never see his loved one again."
This poem has a negative connotation because the author uses words such as weak, weary, and sorrow to show his feelings.
The Raven
by Edgar Allen Poe
The speaker feels depressed about losing his loved one and angry towards the raven.
In the beginning of the poem, the man expresses how sad he is for losing Lenore and is slightly intrigued when a black bird flies into his chamber.

By stanza 8, the man becomes angry with the raven repeating "nevermore" in regards to the man seeing his loved one again. He refers to the bird as the devil and is yelling at him to leave.

One of the themes of this poem is that death can be painful and sad for loved ones.
TPCASTT- Project Example
The poem will be about
a black bird and a disease that it spreads to humans.

From my books surcease (let up) of sorrow-sorrow for the lost Lenore-

(line 10)

"Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!-prophet still if bird or devil!"
(line 85)

The poem was about a raven who enters a man's chamber and speaks of sorrow and death. The title, "The Raven", is a representation of his tormented soul and heartbreak after his loved one's death.
