His interest in the Raven growing, he was quite fascinated by its replies and pulled up a stool and sat on the velvet cushion, just to watch it.

This is probably symbolic of what the memory of Lenore was doing to him. He then remembered her and how she will never be able to sit with him on his velvet stool any more. Suddenly, the narrator felt that the air around him was getting denser, like he was being anesthetized by an unseen angel.
Edgar Allan Poe: An Appreciation
He is enraged as he believed that the Raven was sent by God to make his memories of Lenore fade. He demands the Raven to tell him whether the pain of his lost Lenore will ever subside, he unconcerned if the bird was sent by the devil or just managed to get in his chamber by chance due to the rain. This infuriated the narrator and was the last straw. He went into a fit of rage and madness.
He immediately ordered the bird to get out, back into the storm, to leave the bust of Pallas, and not to leave behind a single feather. He asked the Raven to leave him to wallow in his loneliness. He declared that his ties with the bird have been broken and he asked the bird to take its beak out of his heart.
Did you know...
It just sat on the bust and stared at him with gleaming eyes. He then noticed that it had cast a shadow of itself on the floor and the poet says that his soul will forever be trapped in that shadow, a probable self realization of the narrator that his soul will forever be haunted by the memory of Lenore. The poem is an exhilarating ride of emotions both expressed by the narrator and invoked in the reader.
It is almost inevitable that the reader sympathizes with the narrator as one reads this tragic, romantic poem. Abhirup Bangara is a law student based in Bangalore. He is passionate about reading, drama being his poison, and enjoys the works of William Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw.
Everywhere Poe's life was one of unremitting toil.
No tales and poems were ever produced at a greater cost of brain and spirit. Those were discouraging times in American literature, but Poe never lost faith. He was finally to triumph wherever pre-eminent talents win admirers.
Mayor Declares "Edgar Allan Poe Appreciation Day"
His genius has had no better description than in this stanza from William Winter's poem, read at the dedication exercises of the Actors' Monument to Poe, May 4, , in New York: He was the voice of beauty and of woe, Passion and mystery and the dread unknown; Pure as the mountains of perpetual snow, Cold as the icy winds that round them moan, Dark as the eaves wherein earth's thunders groan, Wild as the tempests of the upper sky, Sweet as the faint, far-off celestial tone of angel whispers, fluttering from on high, And tender as love's tear when youth and beauty die.
In the two and a half score years that have elapsed since Poe's death he has come fully into his own. For a while Griswold's malignant misrepresentations colored the public estimate of Poe as man and as writer. But, thanks to J. Gill, Eugene Didier, Sarah Helen Whitman and others these scandals have been dispelled and Poe is seen as he actually was-not as a man without failings, it is true, but as the finest and most original genius in American letters. As the years go on his fame increases.
His works have been translated into many foreign languages. His is a household name in France and England-in fact, the latter nation has often uttered the reproach that Poe's own country has been slow to appreciate him. But that reproach, if it ever was warranted, certainly is untrue.

Years afterward Professor Clarke thus wrote: Willis, who for some time employed Poe as critic and sub-editor on the "Evening Mirror," wrote thus: A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee; So that her high-born kinsmen came And bore her away from me, To shut her up in a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea, Poe was connected at various times and in various capacities with the "Southern Literary Messenger" in Richmond, Va.
