2008-04-18 [Duke Devlin]: The Raven is the only one of his poems that I have ever heard of, I believe. And I think that is more due to it's popularity - and generally people's lack of knowledge for his others. :P And I dislike it to be honest.
2008-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: Oh yes, but you should read ooohhh whats its name *thumbs* 'the murders in the Rue Morgue' and the 'tell-tale heart' i liked those :) And viggo has the perfect recite-voice. I hope he gets some dramatic monologue *feigns fainting*
2008-04-18 [SilverFire]: The Allan Parson's Project Album based around Poe is worth a listen (in my opinion). Has songs based around The Raven, the Fall of the House of Usher,The system of Doctor Tarr and Professor Feather, The Cask of Amontillado and another poem the name of which escapes me at the moment, but the well-known line from it is "all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream". And it's called *drum-roll* 'Dream within a Dream". :D The album itself is called "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"
2008-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: isn't that A Dream within a Dream?
2008-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: Oh wait, you said so *needs to learn to read first and type later*
2008-04-18 [Duke Devlin]: .. She added that bit after I think. :O
2008-04-18 [SilverFire]: Yeah, I did. Went and did a quick check. Sorry, I'm a bit of a comment-edit whore. :P
2008-04-18 [Duke Devlin]: Hehe sly. :)
I do the same thing. :P
2008-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: Hm very sly indeed :O
2008-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: whadddidadoooo
2008-04-18 [Delladreing]: Poe = over excagerated. The only reason a lot of youngins know about him is because of the Simpsons halloween special episode that depicted the Crow.
2008-04-18 [Duke Devlin]: I have. *proud* :O
Exactly. I agree with that, but my knowledge wasn't due to the Simpsons. :) Just.. Wait I don't even know. D:
2008-04-18 [Delladreing]: Just general knowledge really :p
But yah, most of them probably never even heard of it till Homer Simpson was tormented by Bart crowing "Never more never more!"
2008-04-18 [Duke Devlin]: Ahh very true, and very likely. -___-
2008-04-22 [Linn Scarlett]: I had english literature classes :/ we read his stuff along with Oscar Wilde's and such
2008-04-22 [Linn Scarlett]: Still, I rather like the poem *ominously* "quoth the raven: never more"
2008-04-22 [Duke Devlin]: I had English Literature classes too, but we focused on other stuff. :O
2008-04-22 [Linn Scarlett]: well we sort of focussed on literature? Though I am beginning to suspect I was the only one actually reading the stuff
2008-04-22 [sequeena_rae]: In my literature class we focused on Dickens :[
2008-04-22 [Linn Scarlett]: Ew :/
