Product Description
Detailed analysis of the themes, structure, and stylistic aspects of Poe’s most famous poem, “The Raven.” The handout also includes a discussion of his essay, “The Philosophy of Composition,” where Poe details the stages he followed in writing “The Raven.” A stanza-by-stanza summary of the poem is designed to promote classroom discussion about the psychological nuances of its structure.
Under style, there are ten specific exercises on Poe’s masterful use of alliteration and rhyme, two poetic devices with which students sometimes have problems.
This handout, which has blanks your students can fill in, may be used as a homework assignment or an in-class activity. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout.
Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph.D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
