From my books surcease of sorrow-sorrow for the lost Lenore-.

By Edgar Allan Poe. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore-. From my books surcease of sorrow-sorrow for the lost Lenore-. For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore-. Nameless here for evermore. Edgar Allan Poe’s stature as a major figure in world literature is primarily based on his ingenious and profound short stories, poems, and critical theories, which established a highly influential rationale for the short form in both poetry and fiction Read Full Biography.

Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and of American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story

Endlessly quoted (quoth?) and frequently parodied. The only famous example of trochaic octameter in English verse, although Poe borrowed the meter and rhyme structure from Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Lady Geraldine’s Courtship.

Endlessly quoted (quoth?) and frequently parodied. The poem describes a man’s tormented obsession with his lost love, Lenore. Is the raven who mocks him real, or just a figment of his increasingly unhinged imagination? Poe’s bird was inspired partly by the pet raven, Grip, in Charles Dickens’s Barnaby Rudge

Edgar Allan Poe ends his narrative with a quiet and still character. Quite a change from the last stanzas; it is almost as if he has come to terms with the reality of the situation. As if we are now watching the character from the outside of his head, whist all the commotion is taking place internally.

Edgar Allan Poe ends his narrative with a quiet and still character. However the character lets the reader know that all is not well. The Raven still sits on the statue of Pallas and it looks demon like whilst casting a shadow that traps him forever. That is significant because it gives the reader closure.

It speaks of a mysterious talking raven's visit to a distraught lover.

Check out this unique sci-fi retelling of "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe in the DUST exclusive premiere of "Orbit" by Nicholas Camp and Don Thiel III. y/DUST-Orbit. July 25, 2016 ·. Attention New Yorkers: The Raven flies again!

Lamenting the loss of a gentle but passionate woman, the narrator drinks, yet somberly dwells on her name. A local raven, with the capacity to utter like a parrot a syllable or two, repeats "Lenore," and "Nevermore." The narrator, tired and broken, believes the raven might be sent by God or even by the Devil, and tries talking with it.
  • This poem is the best thing written by this famous author! Haunting, melodramatic, classical and grandiose in epic style, truly chilling in a supernatural way. Dignified in the "Old World" style of writing of the "Graveyard Poets" that lasts beyond time! Should be (along with S. T. Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner") mandatory reading for every high school student! With his piece "The Raven" Poe takes his place alongside such distinguished poets as Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, and a few others that are in a class by their own! Makes you long for those "dark and stormy nights", just for the atmosphere!

  • Brilliant as only a collaboration between Poe and Doré could be!!!

  • nice book..happy with it Edgar Pes the raven is a great poem, I learned it way back in high school

  • I bought this edition of Poe's classic poem on impulse during the holidays, mostly because the price was right and because I have always been partial to Doré's illustrations. In the past few years, I've purchased several of these large (12 x 9 1/2) hardbacks showcasing Doré's work, including Dante's Divine Comedy, and Scenes from the Bible, and I also have the old Dover paperback of 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. I think these are exciting additions to my bookshelves, and, at the same time, I hope that Doré's work might act as a lure for the kids, inspiring them to investigate the literature to which these engravings belong.

    To my mind, this edition of 'The Raven' has two specific flaws and some other small details that the publishers could have improved. The first, and most critical, is the book's layout. After a short biography of Poe and Doré, the full text of 'The Raven' is reprinted on four pages - sans illustrations. Immediately after, Doré's engravings begin, generally on the right hand page with the appropriate section of the poem on the left - but the complete poem is not included throughout the illustrated section. Instead, onlly excerpts are given, presented like captions. In other words, you cannot read the book as you might if you were reading an illustrated story - as, for instance, you might to children - without turning back to the first few pages. Approximately 25% or so of the poem is missing on the pages opposing the illustrations, and though I have tried, I can't think of any good reason for this, unless it has to do with some bizarre copyright rule.

    The other flaw is intrinsic - these were Doré's last illustrations, and in comparison with his earlier work, I felt that on average they were washed out and indistinct. It is possible, of course, that Poe's dreamy, gauzy stanzas was what Doré was attempting to reflect, but one of the appealing aspects of his work is its sharp contrasting figures and distinctive expressions. I don't want to suggest that 'The Raven' is completely devoid of Doré's signature style - it isn't - but overall, it doesn't rise to the inspiring levels of his scenes from the Bible, or to his work on Coleridge's 'Ancient Mariner'. The compositions I thought were intriguing, but the execution only fair.

    Other points that readers may or may not see as deficiencies include the other poems selected to fill out the volume, and their accompanying illustrations. To break up the text, the publishers used a great deal of clip art, which, truthfully, looks like clip art. Of course, there aren't any other engravings by Doré to correspond to these additional poems, but unfortunately, this other art feels 'tossed in' after 'The Raven'. And one last note, which is truthfully very minor and not likely to bother anyone else - in his short biography of Poe that precedes the main text, Dr. Brook Haley indulges in some pop Freudian psychoanalysis when listing the influences on Poe's life, and he also tends to present conjecture as fact when squaring the historical record.

    These last few points in and of themselves do not detract enough from the book to mark it down in rating, but in conjunction with the incomplete sections of the poem facing the illustrations, I would drop the book's grade from 4 stars to 3 1/2. I'd then round back up for the sturdy construction, quality paper, and arresting cover.

  • Got this for a prop & it's just what we needed.

  • To anyone who loves Edgar's poetry, the Dore illustrations bring to life the creatures and characters found throughout his poems.
