Is there anyone more associated with a raven than the writer Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the macabre? His famous poem “The Raven”, published in 1845, presents us with a speaking bird and numerous mythological references. Edgar Allan Poe’s poetry is known for its dark romanticism, gothic tones and anti-heroes. A selection of these classics is now brought to life for the listener’s enjoyment by the versatile sounds of B.J. Harrison. A fair warning: not for the faint hearted or seekers of happy endings.
