| The Raven narrator
| Character Information
The Raven Narrator is the unnamed narrator of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven".
In "The Raven", the narrator is seen as a grieving widower, mourning for Lenore. He spends his days all by himself in his room with his collection of old books. He is then visited by The Raven. When the narrator asks the raven to tell him its name, the bird replies with "Nevermore" and refuses to say anything else. The narrator, seeing the bird's response as mockery, flies into a rage. He is eventually driven insane by the combined effects of the raven's visit and his grief for Lenore.
When Homer heard Lisa reading "The Raven", he imagined himself as the narrator, Marge as Lenore, and Bart as the raven.
Behind the Laughter
- James Earl Jones reads the poem, thus doing most of the actual narration. However, when Homer (as the narrator) says something, he speaks in his normal voice. Occasionally, Lisa's voice is heard reading, as she reads the book to Bart.
