Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Price’s vision of The Raven not only haunts, but also brings Poe’s work back to life. An ideal resource for teachers and students.

Price’s illustrations make the viewer pause and consider the cracks in the narrator’s mind, and they provide glimpses into the strange, violent story behind his torment.

(Price’s pictures) do a great job of evoking the brooding guilt, terror, and love in Poe’s famous poem ? lengthy appended notes will spark discussion on both the poem and the art.

Read an Excerpt

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.
