So, am going to talk about the values "citizenship and commitment" from the story "The raven".First of all,what is citizenship,well its basically is the is the is the fact of belonging to a community because you live in it, and the duties and responsabilities that this brings.For example After 15 years in the U.S.A., he has finally decided to apply for American citizenship.
Only people who can trace their family history in Kuwait back before 1920 are entitled to citizenship.So now that is clear what is "citizenship" its time to check what commitment means,Making a commitment involves dedicating yourself to something, like a person or a cause. Before you make a commitment, think carefully. A commitment obligates you to do something. Some commitments are large, like marriage.
Well,i believe that in this story the value of commitment is represented in a very strong way,because the narrator He kept his position and never stopped believing in the possibility that his wife would continue there maybe trying to give him some sign.also sometimes created to want so much a person can become sickly because if ever said person will hurt you in some way the blow will be too strong and could kill who you are.This man did not care that the crow only repeated the word nevermore he held firm until the end of the story believing that the crow was a sign of his wife lenore.In my opinion the crow is just that a crow which is lost and only in the middle of the night and simply seeks refuge in a quiet place, now the question is because he only repeats that word because I believe that it is simply a bird which he learned a word and he simply repeats it for repeating sure it does not have any great meaning but for the narrator of the story which has experienced the tragic death of his wife could have meant something more something like a signal from the beyond.To conclude about this value in the story of "the raven" this value is represented throughout the story from beginning to end as you can notice the way in which this man persists in believing that his wife is still there.
In my opinion this value is not fully represented in the story because the narrator or rather the story itself never mentions anything about the country where this character lives or even makes reference to something typical of his country or city, could be suppose that happens in the United States of America since the author lived there.
Although that kind of stories are very classistic in this country, of course this is not the typical American romance story since it is not any author. Edgar allan poe has always been characterized by this class of novels which give much of what to talk.
This author has a very specific style which is dark and gothic in a certain way but very interesting at the same time.
This is a very interesting story from which we can learn many values which in society today have been lost as are the consistency and commitment that a person can provide to their loved ones.
It could also be said that this story leaves us a lot to think about, for example, what would we do if one day some loved one dies or, what would we do in this man's place? We would do thesame as him? could we live in peace?
It is very interesting when you put yourself in the victim's place because in this way it is truly possible to understand more or less how this person feels.
