Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Canto III [excerpt] XXXIV There is a very life in our despair, Vitality of poison,—a quick root Which feeds these deadly branches; for it were As nothing did we die; but Life will suit Itself to Sorrow's most detested fruit, Like to the apples on the Dead Sea's shore, All ashes to the taste: Did man compute Existence by enjoyment, and count o'er Such hours 'gainst years of life,—say, would he name threescore?
XXXV The Psalmist number'd out the years of man: They are enough; and if thy tale be true , Thou, who didst grudge him even that fleeting span, More than enough, thou fatal Waterloo!
Millions of tongues record thee, and anew Their children's lips shall echo them, and say— "Here, where the sword united nations drew, Our countrymen were warring on that day!
XXXVI There sunk the greatest, nor the worst of men, Whose spirit antithetically mixt One moment of the mightiest, and again On little objects with like firmness fixt, Extreme in all things!
XXXVII Conqueror and captive of the earth art thou! She trembles at thee still, and thy wild name Was ne'er more bruited in men's minds than now That thou art nothing, save the jest of Fame, Who wooed thee once, thy vassal, and became The flatterer of thy fierceness, till thou wert A god unto thyself; nor less the same To the astounded kingdoms all inert, Who deem'd thee for a time whate'er thou didst assert.
XXXVIII Oh, more or less than man—in high or low, Battling with nations, flying from the field; Now making monarchs' necks thy footstool, now More than thy meanest soldier taught to yield: An empire thou couldst crush, command, rebuild, But govern not thy pettiest passion, nor, However deeply in men's spirits skill'd, Look through thine own, nor curb the lust of war, Nor learn that tempted Fate will leave the loftiest star.
XXXIX Yet well thy soul hath brook'd the turning tide With that untaught innate philosophy, Which, be it wisdom, coldness, or deep pride, Is gall and wormwood to an enemy.
When the whole host of hatred stood hard by, To watch and mock thee shrinking, thou hast smiled With a sedate and all-enduring eye;— When Fortune fled her spoil'd and favourite child, He stood unbow'd beneath the ills upon him piled.
XL Sager than in thy fortunes: for in them Ambition steel'd thee on too far to show That just habitual scorn, which could contemn Men and their thoughts; 'twas wise to feel, not so To wear it ever on thy lip and brow, And spurn the instruments thou wert to use Till they were turn'd unto thine overthrow; 'Tis but a worthless world to win or lose; So hath it proved to thee, and all such lot who choose.
XLI If, like a tower upon a headlong rock, Thou hadst been made to stand or fall alone, Such scorn of man had help'd to brave the shock; But men's thoughts were the steps which paved thy throne, Their admiration thy best weapon shone; The part of Philip's son was thine, not then Unless aside thy purple had been thrown Like stern Diogenes to mock at men; For sceptred cynics earth were far too wide a den.
XLII But quiet to quick bosoms is a hell, And there hath been thy bane; there is a fire And motion of the soul which will not dwell In its own narrow being, but aspire Beyond the fitting medium of desire; And, but once kindled, quenchless evermore, Preys upon high adventure, nor can tire Of aught but rest; a fever at the core, Fatal to him who bears, to all who ever bore.
XLIII This makes the madmen who have made men mad By their contagion; Conquerors and Kings, Founders of sects and systems, to whom add Sophists, Bards, Statesmen, all unquiet things Which stir too strongly the soul's secret springs, And are themselves the fools to those they fool; Envied, yet how unenviable!
One breast laid open were a school Which would unteach mankind the lust to shine or rule: XLIV Their breath is agitation, and their life A storm whereon they ride, to sink at last, And yet so nursed and bigotted to strife, That should their days, surviving perils past, Melt to calm twilight, they feel overcast With sorrow and supineness, and so die; Even as a flame unfed, which runs to waste With its own flickering, or a sword laid by, Which eats into itself, and rusts ingloriously.
XLV He who ascends to mountain-tops, shall find The loftiest peaks most wrapt in clouds and snow. The cushion symbolizes his connection to his physical life.
As he battles with his emotions, the cushion reminds him that his beloved Lenore will never share his physical space and life again.
She will never again, physically be in his company. Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
Here the narrator seems to start hallucinating, perhaps he is lost too deep in his thoughts. He starts to feel as though the air around him is getting thicker with perfume or a scent.
He basically yells at himself to drink this medicine and forget the sadness he feels for the loss of Lenore. Almost as if on cue, the raven says: nevermore.
When he comes to the actual realization that he has lost her physical body forever, he begins to panic. He can literally smell the sweetness of freedom from these feelings that he felt God was allowing him.
He thought that it was a divine message to forget Lenore and he wants to accept, he wants out and away from his mess of feelings especially from the certainty the grief keeps claiming that it will last forever.
He tries to force himself to let it go, but then the raven speaks. His grief overpowers him and still claims that he will never forget her.
Now things get pretty heated as he starts to scream at the bird, calling it a prophet and a thing of evil. He calls his home a desert land, haunted and full of horror, and asks the raven if there is possible hope of any good or peace in the future, and of course, the raven says: nevermore.
Things get more serious in this stanza as the character loses his cool and starts to scream at his emotions. He calls them a prophet because they are basically prophesizing his unhappy life, and a thing of evil because of the pain they are causing him.
Why is his feeling here to stay forever? He asks in his panic; whether there is anything good waiting for him in life, will the intensity of such feelings pass?
By that Heaven that bends above us—by that God we both adore— Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore.
He continues to call the raven a prophet and thing of evil as he dramatically keeps accepting the word of the raven as the answer to his questions.
He then asks for the raven to tell him if he will ever get to hold Lenore again, and predictably the raven says: nevermore. The character is spiraling into more chaos as he realizes he is stuck in this pain and no relief is coming his way.
In desperation, he asks whether he will ever hold and embrace his beloved Lenore ever again. The raven crushes him furthermore by saying no.
His feeling of loss intensifies as his grief reaffirms for him that the life he had wanted can never ever be his to have and cherish.
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken! Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!
He screams at the raven to leave and go back to the storm it came from and to not even leave a trace of it being present in his chamber.
He wants to live in his loneliness without accepting the reality of it. He does not want anything to do with the answers that the bird has given him.
He continues to yell at the bird to leave and the raven simply replies with: nevermore implying that it will not go. He screams and cries for his loneliness to stay unbroken because he realizes that he is no longer alone these emotions and feelings he has unearthed will continue to haunt him and live with him forever.
He yells to these feelings to get away from his wisdom and rational thinking. He pleads for this feeling of intense grief and loss to take the sharp pain away that he is feeling, and of course as the reader knows for certain by now, the answer is: nevermore.

Trivia Noomi Rapace was offered the role of Emily. Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;.
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door—. Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—.
Perched, and sat, and nothing more. Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,. By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,.
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore—. Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,.
Though its answer little meaning—little relevancy bore;. For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being. Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door—.
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door,. But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only.
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour. Nothing farther then he uttered—not a feather then he fluttered—. On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before.
Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,. Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster.
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore—. Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore.
