Ever since I was a little kid, I loved Edgar Allan Poe. I may be the only one to remember “The Raven” being read on Animaniacs, but it was the greatest thing ever. In middle school, as an assignment to memorize a poem, a boy in my class memorized over 100 lines of “The Raven” and read it in this creepily accurate British acccent, which thrilled the entire class. I think it’s the eerie-ness Poe has that’s always fascinated me (y’know, it appeals to my very gothic soul).
