Publisher's Summary

"The Raven" is a narrative poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. First published in January 1845, the poem is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. It tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further distress the protagonist with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore". The poem makes use of folk, mythological, religious, and classical references.

Overly dramatic, but still a story for the ages...didn't much care for this narrator's rendition.

story was good

story was good, but the performance was a bit lacking. I like Edgar Allen Poe so the performance needed to be better.

Over dramatic!

The reader seems to not know the work. The Raven is a masterpiece, but his reading is a disaster!
