    Techincal Problems

    Hi,

    I'm trying to interpret The raven by Edgar Allan Poe.

    I counted 18 Stanzas with each six lines and I was wandering if this is a special type of poem? (You know, like a sonnet has 3 quatrains and a couplet!?)

    Ben.

    Ben.
    But I could not figure what bearing technical problems have on this poem.

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.
