Today, 131 years ago, The Raven was published. A classic poem that captured the wild imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. See our Poe Collection for Raven posters, tees and mugs. And here a taste of the poem for those adoring fans.

 

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
Only this and nothing more.”
