CLASSIC HORROR. Adapted from the poem by Edgar Allan Poe. The author is lamenting the death of his true love, Lenore, when he hears a rapping on his chamber door and is visited by a raven. As the author asks the raven a series of questions in which the raven merely replies, “Nevermore,” the author goes from being weak and weary to completely grief-stricken over the loss of Lenore and realizes his soul “Shall be lifted...nevermore.” Included in the short play collection "The Tell-Tale Heart."
