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.
Though i did not reread it this time, this is one of my favorite poems. The author died in 1849, or so Google informs me. bri ;)
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, 'Lenore! '
This I whispered,
the great alen poe
it is amazing i love it
This is a master piece of all the poems i have read. I have read it over 10 times to be able to master this excellent work. It takes two to tango, I believe this poem recited would be better if done so by two people. The gothic atmosphere goes to bring out the impeccable imagination of Edgar.
I have always been thrilled by Edgar Allan Poe. He is so often taken as a poet of horror. Poe has written over (361) Vols. which range from shale mining to tales of Murder, where he deploys his master detective M.Augustine. I too am a great fan of the Raven only this and nothing more.
I memorized this poem to quote while standing in front of an English class when I was in high school. I still
remember parts of it and I am now 86 years old. It's one of my favorites!
This guy is great, I can’t wait for his next poem!
I say this is correct Idiot
I agree with you An Idiot
This is good as f**’k
Indeed it is, my fellow primate
Really one of the best, could use more people in this app though it would make it fun and more interesting than others but it also helps me keep up with friends in different places around the country I love it to the end and the end is the only thing that I will give up for this book

why is a raven like a writting (wrighting or righting desk..) desk? ? ? ? ? ?
Because Poe wrote on both! HAhahahahha lol ha ha. : D (Quote from ~ Alice in Wonderland..) .
You’re very gay
i think i heard why are you/
Regarding " The Raven, " credited by historians to Edgar Allan Poe, I have a great deal of evidence that the real author was Mathew Franklin Whittier, younger brother of poet John Greenleaf Whittier.
when your doing homework and forgot everything about the poem...so you had to look it up...
Edgar Allan Poe - so unique. I have memorized the second verse of this poem. Don't know why only the second verse, but so what. Hard to find poetry nowadays that can compare; that is, if you can find any decent poetry at all.
Great poem read it several times over the years
What a great rhythmical flow powerful poem.
Needs more abusive lanugauge
