The next Romantic Characteristic is the use of the supernatural.
This work made Poe a household name in American literature. The work encompasses Poe’s literary skills since he wrote both poems and narratives. This is a poem that was written in narrative style but contains poem properties. 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).
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.
