Poe’s “The Philosophy of Composition” explains in detail how Poe created “The Raven.” This essay, written the year after the poem was composed, sets forth a number of interesting principles of poetry to which Poe was devoted. Also, the short lament “Lenore,” first written in 1831, expresses similar themes to those found in “The Raven,” and the name of the dead girl is the same as that which Poe used in the later poem.
