It's Elementary, yes especially with The Raven

Edgar Allen Poe, or "Poe" is well known for the poem that's called "The Raven".  What's special about this?  Why would you want to think about it?  Well for a few different reasons...being..

1. Seasonal- it takes place, or the setting is in dark and dreary December - December is the month we are in right now.   

2. The Raven is put next to or juxtaposed to a Seraphim (AKA a winged angel, six sit next to God according some religious texts etc).  This is shown through specific word choice by Poe.

3.  The Raven at one point perches itself upon a bust of Pallas.Pallas is significant for three specific reasons.  

A.Pallas has relations to Athena the Goddess of Wisdom and could actually be Athena since Pallas's exact place in Greek Mythology is questionable, she might even be a titan.  More interestingly however is that there is a ..

B. Pallas cat species that is native to Parts of Asia specifically Mongolia and central Asia.  

C. Famous Astroid Pallas.  

SO Pallas is a good name to drop and if Poe thought about this at all or probably was just thinking that Pallas and the Raven are a good match together for visualization and that sort of thing.
