Perhaps Edgar Allen Poe's most famous poem, the "Raven" is a macabre exploration of a man, his memories of Lenore, and the black bird that interrupts his studies on a dark December night, with tap-tap-tapping at his chamber door. (Summary by Hugh) (0 hr 9 min)

So its said, it is So. Our darkened friend Edgar Allen Poe.
What a sweet bedtime read. I sleep so deep awaiting the arrival of the day , It's a rhythm and the rhyme. That's what way thus Raven did say... Lenore tis thus Evermore.
It was amazing!
This is my first time reading/listening to Edgar Allan Poe work. And I am already hooked. I'll be picking up one of his poetry again soon. The writing itself is phenomenal, each words is placed carefully to convey every emotions and story in such a way it rolled off the tongue easily. The narrator did a good job at conveying the emotions, but a better mic would be excellent.
Great reading of a classic Edgar Allen Poe poem, or, as I like to humorously call it, a Poem. It feels fitting to end this review with the main line: “Quoth the raven, Nevermore.”
I love the raven, it's such a classic and this person's voice was a terrible choice for it
narrator needs to submerge in the poem . not poke it from arms length
Truly strange and not a little dark. It seems like an opiated reverie or a fevered dream somewhere between sleep and wakefulness. He will see Lenore never more and hopefully the Raven, in the dawn will be gone for evermore. I like the English reader. If Poe had been an Englishman, he probably would’ve sounded like him.
This is one of the best pulled off literary pieces ever and an icon of virtuosity amongst writers. Look for Poe's review on his own poem. It's a Masterpiece: His whole work.
it might be the most interesting poem I never read. but disappointing. It was a novel I was looking for, but for the sake of my review, this I did ignore.
