The Raven

I’m currently sat eating lots of random, fruity sweets in my dining room. Correction, I’m now sat, two days later, nursing one of those hangovers where your stomach feels like it’s slowly dying on you… I’m hoping the numerous glasses of water will neutralize this, along with any potential headaches that might be developing…

I’m only intending this to be a short post as I’ve got lots to do for my brother’s birthday party later… Fun. And by lots to do, I mean sitting on my ass watching my mum run around trying to turn the house into Disney World in Yorkshire.

The Raven, by Edgar Allen Poe is my favourite poem I have decided! I love the gothic tone and haunting subtleties… Excellent lines, such as “Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door” just mesmerise me! I’d definitely encourage anyone who hasn’t read it to give it a go. I’m not usually the kind of person that would find poems that engaging either, I’m more of an all out literature guy myself, but this particular poem definitely won me over…

Below is just a Halloween special created by Natalia Kills and Space Cowboy of the poem, enjoy.
