The Raven

Edgar Allan Poe

Book Overview: 

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.

It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore.'" F.S. King. "'Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked, upstarting." W. Zimmermann.

COMMENT ON THE POEM.

The secret of a poem, no less than a jest's prosperity, lies in the ear of him that hears it. Yield to its spell, accept the poet's mood: this, after all, is what the sages answer when you ask them of its value. Even though the poet himsel. . . Read More

Fin da bambino, io non sono stato
uguale agli altri; non ho mai guardato
il mondo come gli altri; le passioni
da una fonte comune non ho tratto.
Dalla stessa sorgente non ho attinto
il mio dolore; né ho accordato il cuore

Il Poe poeta? Semplicemente sublime.
Una scrittura così delicata, densa di sfumature e rimandi, dove la Natura è parte di tutto e dove i pensieri dell'uomo, in quanto essere vivente che riflette su ciò che lo circonda, fanno da base a queste splendide poesie che hanno in sè solitudine, amore, dolo...more

یکی از دلایلی که آثار ادگار آلنپو (چه شعر و چه داستان کوتاه) رو برام جذاب میکنه فضاسازی خاص و بکرشه. فضاسازی هوشنمندانهای که به خوبی میتونه مخاطب رو همراه کنه و همذاتپنداری ایجاد کنه. سایهی مرگ ترس احساس گناه پوچی و ملال تقریباً تو تمام شعرها دیده میشه. چیزی که برای من خیلی جذاب بود آشنایی ادگار...more

"Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!
Quoth the raven, 'Nevermore.' "

These poems...where something else.

I really really loved 'The Raven', which is the first poem in this collection. It was incredibly weird and abstract and I really enjoyed making notes on it and st...more

The Raven and Other Poems by Edgar Allen Poe is the short story selection in the group catching up on classics in November 2017. A gloomy, gothic selection of poetry that deems suitable for longer fall evenings ahead, I decided to read along with the group. After being exposed to much modern poet...more

Who doesn't love Poe? This one contains some of our favorite poems and I purchased it for my oldest daughter to read from our book club. It contains some of the spookiest poems by Poe including our favorite for this time of year, The Raven, as well as others like The Haunted Palace, Annabel Lee,...more

Not wild about poetry, not wild about horror but I love, love love these poems. I'm becoming a big Edgar Allan Poe fan completely by accident.

The Raven, Annabel Lee; pure genius.

Be nothing which thou art not.

Overview 4/5 stars

I don't read much of any poetry. Apart from poems I've read for school (way back when), this is my first book of poetry I've ever read. I will be reading more poetry from now on as I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Poe is well known for the Raven, which ev...more

A Edgar Allan Poe sólo le pagaron 9 dólares por publicar su poema en el Evening Mirror, pero de pronto se dio cuenta que había tocado el cielo con la manos. Lo invitaban a distintas reuniones de la alta sociedad a recitar de un tirón su famoso poema, lúgubre, melancólico y fatalista. Una obra de...more
