"The Raven”
The 1845 publication of "The Raven” made Poe widely popular in his lifetime and remains one of the most famous poems ever written. It is noted for its musicality and supernatural atmosphere and tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught narrator, lamenting the loss of his love and tracing a slow descent into madness with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore”.

Who was Edgar Allan Poe? (1809 –1849)
An American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered by many to be part of the American Romantic Movement. Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America's first great literary critic and theoretician. Poe's reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as his haunting lyric poetry.
