Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven

It was on January 29, 1845 that 'The Raven', by Edgar Allan Poe, was published for the first time in the New York Evening Mirror. In honor of the anniversary I was going to post the poem, but then I discovered that so many actors with outstanding voices have read The Raven. So I thought why not post a reading of it instead. If you search for it at Youtube, you'll find that Christopher Walken, James Earl Jones, Christopher Lee and other have done it, but I couldn't resist the Vincent Price version. I've always loved Price's voice! Hope you enjoy it.
