(4.4 stars; 675 reviews)

Perhaps Edgar Allen Poe's most famous poem, the "Raven" is a macabre exploration of a man, his memories of Lenore, and the black bird that interrupts his studies on a dark December night, with tap-tap-tapping at his chamber door. (Summary by Hugh)

I haven't (and/or have not) listened to this rendition yet; however, I give ☆☆☆ to the high school students posting comments. I am (and/or I'm) sure your English teacher is proud of you.

Most enjoyable!

I felt as if I was in the room with the Raven, feeling what Poe was feeling as he wrote.


(3.5 stars)

I really love this poem, though the reader leaves something to be desired. but still, one of the all time best spooky reads!


(5 stars)

I simply love this poem and I truly believe Mr. Goringe's voice and tone have added a wonderful flavour to it.

Great poem and great reading. The accent was almost comical though. If Christopher Lee read this I'd believe I was in the room.

chills went down my spine listening to this reading; just as they did yearrs ago when I first read it for myself.

I love Poe's work, but couldn't get past the poor audio quality and the almost painful accent and cadence of the reader. No offense, sir, but it sounded like you had marbles in your mouth and were in front of a fan.
