”NEVERMORE”

.
“Lenore”

.
is a poem by the American author Edgar Allan Poe. It began as a different poem, “A Paean”, and was not published as “Lenore” until 1843. The poem discusses proper decorum in the wake of the death of a young woman, described as “the queenliest dead that ever died so young”. The poem concludes: “No dirge shall I upraise,/ But waft the angel on her flight with a paean of old days!” Lenore’s fiancé, Guy de Vere, finds it inappropriate to “mourn” the dead; rather, one should celebrate their ascension to a new world. Unlike most of Poe’s poems relating to dying women, “Lenore” implies the possibility of meeting in paradise.
