Advent calendar 2013: Day 11 "The Raven"

Today we look at "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe.

First published in 1845, this deliciously dark poem has delighted readers for nearly two centuries. Rich in musical sound. It tells the tale of the forlorn narrator mourning his late Lenore visited by the secretive, taunting eponymous raven.
