To help you complete your map and write your report about the poem, I will give you some useful information. The poem is entitled The Raven and it is written by Edgar Allan. The story is about an unknown narrator reading his old books and he is thinking of his lost love Lenore. Suddenly, he hears someone (or something) knocking at the door. He opens the door and nothing is there, then he opens the window and in flies (you guess). Then the narrator speaks to the Raven but it answers back with a single word: “nevermore”. Because the Raven’s vocabulary is so short and it only answers “nevermore” to the narrator feel that every time he ask a question the Raven does not understands him. Then he continues to ask more personal questions to the Raven and because the Raven can not answer them the poor narrator starts to lose his sanity.
Please see below your map and refer back to your poem to help you answer it.
