And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted—nevermore!

The raven is one of the most common birds in ancient mythologies. Most likely because of its shiny, black color, it’s peculiar sound, being a scavenger and it’s intelligence. It has long been considered a bird of ill omen and has often obtained mythic status as a mediator animal between life and death. As a carrion bird, ravens became associated with the dead. For example in Sweden, they where known as the ghosts of murdered persons and lost souls. In many cultures, such as Aboriginal and Native American legends, the raven is believed to have originally been white.
