Question:

Read the following section of the poem:
Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore.
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.
This section of the poem indicates that the raven is most likely a symbol of:

A The author’s grief over the loss of Lenore
Explaination

It’s clear from the way the raven arrives, calmly, and does not leave that it is most like a symbol of the narrator’s grief over losing Lenore.
