"The Raven" tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore".

I think the raven and the chamber door were a metaphor. He lost his wife and the raven is a symbol of  dread and sorrow and the chamber door is a symbol of the narrator. The raven shall nevermore lift from the chamber door as in sorrow and depression shall nevermore lift from the narrator.
We did this for our show theme for my marching band season last year
This poem and Anabelle Lee are my favorites by Poe. I love the reading on Youtube that Christopher Lee does of "The Raven". He really gives justice to the genius written in these words.
