Overview

A mysterious talking raven pays a visit to a man who is distraught from the loss of his lover. The man, aching over the death of his dear Lenore, is upset and distressed by the bird who repeats one word;

Nevermore.

Steeped in stylized, but dark prose and written in an almost musical style Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven is a bleak, mesmerizing journey through one man’s depression and madness. Illustrated by Gustave Doré, the master woodcut artist gives the poem the rich but despondent feel which perfectly accompanies this classic poem.

A reproduction of an 1884 version of an illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. Illustrated by Gustave Doré the art in the original books was produced in woodcuts. This edition digitally alters and cleans up the images for digital printing.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.
