In Poes, Raven, the poor narrator has lost his Lennore and is deep in the throes of grieving. Though Poe could not have know the offical stages of grief, he was personally acquantied with it. In his conflict with the Raven he exhibits that stage called anger, denial, and even some of the bargaining that is typical of those who are suffering from grief.
