“The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe

October 28, 2009 at 12:04 am (Episode, Halloween, Holiday, Podcast) (, , , , , , , , , )

Presented in its entirety, this is the longest episode so far from the Halloween Haunt. Thank you for pushing me to do it, Natalie. Let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter @HalloweenHaunt and HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.

For your own reading, you can turn to The Poe Museum, which is in Richmond, VA.

Mr. Poe was finally given a proper funeral, 16o years after his death. I meant to do an episode on it. I may, still, next year.

Music includes:

“Remains from the Past” by Grigor Iliev (from Soundclick.com)

“Prayers for the Dying” by Chamber of Sorrows (from Soundclick.com)

“Gagool” by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)

“Depression” by Twilight Productions

    I love this poem for it has an eerie atmosphere and written so brillantly. I’ve read this poem several times along with Poe’s other stories and poems.

      It is an amazing work, isn’t it? I hope you enjoyed this and the other Poe poems. Please sample the works by the others featured so far in the Haunt.

    I liked The Bells too and The Haunted Beach as well. I’m actually related to famous poets on my dad’s side of the family by a great great grandma or something like that.

      Alyssa,

      I am a big fan of Mr. Poe. You are very lucky to be related to famous poets. You should look into that.

    I’ll have to since my grandma and aunt are working on a family tree. The website my aunt uses found information on relations to famous people; poets, presidents and more.
