Why does the raven only say that word?

He says, "nevermore". In every stanza near the end, however, his exclamations are punctuated by the calm desolation of the sentence "Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore,'" reflecting the despair of his soul. It doesn't look good for this guy's future. This one word has a dark gothic tone to it as well as it drives the guy crazy!
