Abstract or Introduction
The paper deals with the topic of of spirituality in Edgar Allan Poe's poem “The Raven”.
A poem such as “The Raven”, especially due to its great resonance, would be a shame to be limited and diminished to apply just to the life of the writer. A poem is a piece that once created is free to alternate through time and maintain its vitality. Unconsciously though everyone is affected by experience and it is inevitable not to be influenced by it. It is possible that death affected Poe in a higher degree than others but on the other hand death and life after it has always been an alluring subject since it is indeed the most mysterious event of life so far. The supernatural element implies an unknown world, one all people fear and also hope for and it is what makes the poem so enthralling to the audience and what made “The Raven” one of the most popular poems ever.
