    “There comes Poe with his raven,” wrote the poet James Russell Lowell in 1848, “like Barnaby Rudge, / Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer.

    “There comes Poe with his raven,” wrote the poet James Russell Lowell in 1848, “like Barnaby Rudge, / Three-fifths of him genius and two-fifths sheer fudge.” Barnaby Rudge , as you may know, is a novel by Charles Dickens , published serially in 1841. Set during the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots of 1780, the book stands as Dickens’ first historical novel and a prelude of sorts to  A Tale of Two Cities . But what, you may wonder, does it have to do with Poe and “his raven”?

    Quite a lot, it turns out. Poe reviewed the first four chapters of Dickens’  Barnaby Rudge for Graham’s Magazine , predicting the end of the novel and finding out later he was correct when he reviewed it again upon completion. He was particularly taken with one character: a chatty raven named Grip who accompanies the simple-minded Barnaby. Poe described the bird as “intensely amusing,” points out Atlas Obscura , and also wrote that Grip’s “croaking might have been prophetically heard in the course of the drama.”

    ­Known as the American author and poet of the romantic movement, Poe rose to critically acclaim for his poetry and short stories by the early 1800's. His work also ventured in the genres of the macabre and mystery.

    On January 19, 1809, Poe was left an orphan after his mother passed suddenly after childbirth. The young Poe was raised by the John and France Allan family of Richmond, Virginia. It was in Richmond that the young child grew up and flourished. Poe studied at the Unversity of Virginia for just one semester before turning his aspirations towards enlistment in the Army. His career in the Army was short lived as the youngster found life as a cadet at West Point more than he bargained for.

    The most noticeable rhyme in the poem comes at the end of the second, fourth, fifth, and sixth lines in each stanza. It s easy to pick out, because it s always an "or" sound (e.g. lore, door, more, floor, Lenore, and of course, Nevermore). That means that two thirds of the lines in this poem end with the same sound! In English-professor jargon, this rhyme scheme would be called ABCBBB, with each letter standing for the sound that ends a line. From Shmoop/form and meter/The Raven
