i would like to discuss what these two stanzas of Edgar Allen Poes' the raven mean to everyone else and why, also why do you think he structured them in the order and phrasing he did, so that it seems that he is sure its nothing, but that he calls out to someone?
And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
thrilled me, filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
so that now, to still the beating of my heart, i stood repeating
"tis some vistitor entreating entrance at my chamber door--
some late cisitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;--
this is it- and nothing more"
presently my heart grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
sir said I or madam, truely your forgiveness i miplore;
but the fact is i was napping and so gently you came rapping,
so fainly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
that i scarce was sure i heard you"--here i opened wide the door;
darkness there and nothing more
