The Raven and Other Poems
Donald Aday, Diana Aday
Publisher: Donald Aday
This collection of popular poems from the master American poet and storyteller, Edgar A. Poe, includes: “The Raven”, “A Dream”, “The City In The Sea”, “Annabel Lee”, “A Dream Within A Dream”, “Lenore”, “Eldorado”, “To Helen”, “The Haunted Palace”, and “Alone”.
At the heart of Edgar A. Poe’s work is the anguish, sadness and extreme difficulties he experienced during his short and tragic life. Even in his darkest hours, when he was deprived by circumstances, and by other people, of the basic necessities of life, even forced to beg for money from friends and strangers in the street, he took pen to paper to create these poems.
These poems echo his lonely spirit, manifesting the deeply anchored feelings and realities of love, death, betrayal, dreams and fantasies. The darkness of his life and his own spirit were the inspiration for his creative works of poems and short stories, and defined him in his own time, as they do still.
The narration of this collection of Poe’s poems is enhanced by the use of music and sound effects in some of the poems, and includes historical information about the author.
