Pause for Poetry: The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe


Simon & Schuster Edition

This week’s special Halloween Pause for Poetry features the classic poem, “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe. Originally published in 1845, “The Raven” was inspired by the talking raven in Charles Dickens’ Barnaby Rudge and utilizes the meter of “Lady Geraldine’s Courtship” by Elizabeth Barrett.

Without further ado, let’s all hit the pause button of our lives for a few minutes and watch “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe, performed by Vincent Price in a short film directed by Johnny Thompson.

The lyrics are available below the video if you’d like to read along.
