Poe's Day!

Happy 200th Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe.

My favorite of his poems has always been "The Raven." Corny, yeah, but I remember being in 5th Grade, finding out it was the next poem we would read in English class, and getting goosebumps.

Not sure when I first came across the poem. Might've been while rummaging through the bookcases in the spare room downstairs and in the garage.

Here's Christopher Walken's rendition.

Another by Basil Rathbone.

And a performance by the one of the greats of Horror Films Past, the inimitable Vincent Price.
