Product Description

About the Author

Author, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction. However, Poe is best known for his works of the macabre, including such infamous titles as The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, Lenore, and The Fall of the House of Usher. Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe was one of the first writers to make his living exclusively through his writing, working for literary journals and becoming known as a literary critic. His works have been widely adapted in film. Edgar Allan Poe died of a mysterious illness in 1849 at the age of 40.

I love this poem but unfortunately when I read it I cannot help but think of the brilliant 'Simpsons' episode with Bart as the Raven! 'Nevermore'!

I made the mistake of reading the overlong, pompous and boring introduction by Edmund Steadman. Give it a miss!

Also the free Kindle version I downloaded had none of the illustrations which are listed at length at the beginning and end of the book, the actual poem itself starts about two thirds of the way into the book and only takes up about 8 pages.

A great poem, shame about the intro and the Kindle formatting. 5 stars for Poe, no stars for Edmund Steadman.

I can't praise the poem enough (if not the spelling here and there). Everyone who says they are lovers of poetry should take the time to read this (just the poem which is short, if not the learned works that proceed it).

“And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted – nevermore!"

Don't waste your time with the free download. On my Kindle sections of the poem are missing, the formatting is terrible and it's strangely interspersed with the names of illustrators although the illustrations themselves are also missing. A bit pointless really.

If you want to see Edgar Allan Poe at his best, in my opinion The Raven is it. If I could've found the audiobook version with James Earl Jones reading it... that would've made my month, but reading it to yourself in James Earl Jones's voice is almost as good. Classic

Awful edition. Lengthy and tedious introduction telling you nothing of interest. But the main problem is that the e-edition does not contain the illustrations which is the highlight of the original hard copy. I know it's a free download but it's still a worthless edition to your kindle library.

Unbelievably first heard this poem on the animation The Simpsons, Lisa is reading it to Bart and Maggie in the tree house whilst Homer is secretly listening in, sat outside on a branch. Instantly it caught my attention and I had to read it for myself and very glad I did as its fantastic. Top marks from me.

Ever since i watched the simpsons interpretation of this poem when i was a little boy, i have been obsessed with it. Have read and re-read the poem countless times. The first I've experienced of Poe's works but definitely not the last.
