“The Raven” is the most famous poem ever written by Edgar Allan Poe. Its publication skyrocketed him to literary fame in the mid-1800s. There are lots of audio versions of this poem floating around the Internetz, including some by very famous actors and whatnot, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. This one was recorded live on Periscope, then I added in the music and found a great Lenore/Raven picture (is that the best Lenore/Raven ever or what?), and then uploaded to my YouTube channel. I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know what you think!
