Interpretation of poem “The Raven”- Edgar Allan Poe
The description is as a narrative but the literary work is done in stanzas and lines just like a poem. This poem shows Poe’s ability to combine his creative abilities to come up with a brilliant work of art (Robert 101).
Lisa and Maggie are seraphim. Homer’s wife Marge appears as a painting of Lenore. As The Simpsons has a great audience, the raven can fulfil its part as reminder about death. Another famous example is the NFL football team the Baltimore Ravens. Their name was influenced by this poem and is a tribute to Poe, who lived in Baltimore for a few years. As shown, The Raven has clearly had an impact on our lives, due to the fact that Poe's message is current and continues to remain relevant to our lives.
