Edgar Allan Poe
"The Raven" is narrated in the first person by an unnamed, unreliable speaker. He is grief-stricken over the loss of his love, Lenore, and his mental state deteriorates over the course of the poem.
"The Raven" is told primarily in the past tense as the speaker recounts his experience with the raven, but the tense occasionally moves into the speaker's present, most notably at the poem's close.
The title "The Raven" refers to the raven that visits and vexes the speaker on a winter's night.
