Episode 043: The Raven

The Raven
$8.99
By Edgar Allan Poe

Nothing screams New Year's like a guy sitting in his study, missing his beloved, wishing an obnoxious, repetitive bird would just leave him the heck alone. Therefore it's only natural that Craig read a classic tale of bird vs. man antagonism.

The Raven is arguably Edgar Allen Poe's most famous work, so it's fitting we use it as a springboard to talk about all sorts of Poe-related topics such as New Year's resolutions, Philadelphia, Poe's Philosophy of Composition, pentameters and octometers, and James Earl Jones' luxurious voice.
