Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven' delves into the hidden horrors of the human psyche. Originally published in 1845, this gothic poem is narrated by a melancholy scholar who is lamenting Lenore, a woman he loved and lost. One bleak December midnight a raven shows up at his door - with only one thing to say, 'Nevermore!'. The raven's repetitious 'Nevermore' slowly drives the narrator to madness.
