 NATURE. Ravens. The Bird in Black | PBS
In NATURE's RAVENS we see zoologist Bernd Heinrich of the University of Vermont work with ravens to see whether they could learn to distinguish between strings bearing food and strings bearing rocks and modify their behavior based on their understanding.
For example, the researcher flushed a bird off a frozen chunk of suet and observed upon inspection that the raven used its beak to carve a precise groove around the fat, allowing it to carry off a large chunk at once instead of several small morsels to eat one at a time.
Ravens were asked to perform a task -- opening a box to get a reward -- and then teach the behavior to their fellow birds.

 The Poe Decoder - "The Raven"
The man welcomes the raven, and is afraid that the raven will be gone in the morning, "as [his] Hopes have flown before"; however, the raven answers, "Nevermore." The man smiled, and pulled up a chair, interested in what the raven "meant in croaking, ‘Nevermore.’" The chair, where Lenore once sat, brought back painful memories.
In "The Raven" it is important that the answers to the questions are already known, to illustrate the self-torture to which the narrator exposes himself.
Poe also considered a parrot as the bird instead of the raven; however, because of the melancholy tone, and the symbolism of ravens as birds of ill-omen, he found the raven more suitable for the mood in the poem (Poe, 1850).

 NPR : Edgar Allen Poe's 'Raven', Present at the Creation
But late in his career "The Raven" made Poe so popular that children would chase the author until he would turn around, raise his arms and yell "Nevermore." Yet despite the popularity of that dark and haunting poem, Poe remained a poor man.
He says one of the reasons the author was so poor is that he would often spend months working on a poem, only to be paid a few dollars from the reviews or newspapers that would publish it.
In an essay called "The Philosophy of Composition," written a year after "The Raven" was published, Poe implied that writing the poem was a methodical process, like solving a math problem, and that he wrote the end of it first.
