In order to create mood in “The Raven”

In order to create mood in “The Raven”, he used imagery to construct the feeling of lack of certainty and create a somber mood. In “The Raven”, “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, / Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore”, readers imagine that the speaker is in the state of sadness because he read a book alone in the night. His setting in his poem created cold and chilly mood. The setting was December and it is cold weather. Even the fire died out because of its coldness. As Poe wrote in his poem, “Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, / And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.”
