A good performance and a well delivered piece. I bought it as its my girlfriends fav poem and this didn't disapoint
"Great reading, but the Intro was unneeded"
An excellent reading of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven:" Dramatic, well presented, appropriate atmosphere and Bill Mills' characterization is great!
I almost felt compelled to dock one star from the rating because of the long and, in my opinion, unnecessary bio of the author that takes up the first third of the recording. A short opening bio might have been useful (maybe 2 minutes), but this went on for way too long.
So, 5 stars for the Raven, but consider skipping the intro.
"i have heard better performances"
depending on the performance of it there is one i sadly bought on itunes that you have....but is a better performance than this one. I did like some of the history of Poe given in this one.
His descent into madness
Yes...you have to sit through it, it's climax is so awesome!!
The Raven should be considered if not the greatest poem, one of them. How Poe can access the dread we have of the death of a love one and lay it so plain...it is simply terrifying and beautiful at the same time
