Poe Fridays (on Saturday)

Today's selection is, of course, The Raven.

It's hard to know what to say about this, one of the most popular poems of all time. It has the perfect combination of imagery and cadence, and is perfectly creepy, as well.

It's a brilliant choice for Halloween, and since my new favorite thing is finding related videos on Youtube, here is my scary present for you!

Poe Fridays is hosted by Kristen at WeBeReading. (If you can't get enough, Kristen has a great video of The Raven performed by Vincent Price - check it out!)

James Earl Jones narrates the Simpsons' The Raven too. :) Happy Halloween!
