The title helps you understand the meaning of the poem because the main character of the story is a Raven. When I read this poem I visualize a distressed man about his love live, but a Raven the size of a window slowly turns him insane. This poem has a non literal understanding because what the Raven represents is his brain in a struggle between himself and his obsession with his secret love. The poet Edgar Allan Poe uses consonance thought the whole poem to convey his message.

Summary:

In the poem it is late at night and very late in the year, and the main character, a man is sitting in his room half falling asleep and half reading a book trying to forget about his lost love. Then suddenly he gets a surprised visit, but when he opens the door he finds nothing, scared almost to death he opens his window and a Raven comes swooping in. The Raven's limited vocabulary is "Nevermore" and the man asked the Raven deeper and deeper question going very personal but he only gets one response every time, "Nevermore." From this the man slowly rides himself insanity.
