I'm having problems coming up with a thesis statement for Edgar Allen Poe's poem The Raven. I have to do an analysis paper. Any suggestions on where to begin?

Here is Poe's discussion about his poem, "The Raven" --
You may get some ideas here. I'd either analyze how he created what I believe his primary theme is (meter, rhyme scheme, other literary devices), or I'd deal with the dialogue between the man and the bird, focusing on the implications of each of the bird's responses.
I hope something here will trigger an idea in your mind.

One thing to think about: Did the bird who kept returning represent depresson and alcoholism, which plagued Poe's life?
