Edgar Allan Poe's the Raven
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021—Syracuse Academy of Science middle school Atoms in 7D studied a classic piece in American Literature, The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. Published in 1845, this poem consists of 18 stanzas and 108 lines and shows incredible symbolism about a gentleman who mourns and longs for his beloved Lenore. As part of their curriculum, students were tasked with not only learning about Poe’s incredible work, but also memorizing the 108 lines of The Raven.
Recognized by many as one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most well known pieces written, The Raven has been parodied many times over the years, especially around Halloween. From television series such as the Gilmore Girls and the Simpsons, to even magazines and comic book series such as Batman, Calvin and Hobbs and MAD Magazine. Way to go Atoms, we are very proud of you!
