Free PDF ebook of Edgar Allan Poe's

The Raven and Other Works

Poe’s The Raven, first published on January 29, 1845, is my all-time favorite poem. I have read it countless times in the past thirty-plus years — and I never tire of reading, reciting and studying it. So I designed a book which tries to do typographical justice to this poetic masterwork.

In addition to The Raven, my book also includes five other fine Poe poems, his wife Virginia's Valentine poem and Poe's 1846 essay The Philosophy of Composition.

I am smugly pleased with the result
— and I hope that many others will also enjoy this book.
