edgar allan poes the raven1 Of Mystery and Macabre – 20 Images of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven

Being sheepishly bookish, I have a lot of books cluttered all around my desk. Yes, I don’t have the time to completely reorganize them, but every now and then, I try to. A few days ago, I did an attempt to organize all of my books and after an hour or so, I ended up slouched on my couch, holding a book and reading Edgar Allan Poe.

There’s some rhyme to that, I know, but I’m far from being a poet (that’s why I’m a blogger and a designer). Going back to Mr. Poe, I’ve read The Raven for the nth time that day. It was, as always, elegant and very somber. After reading The Raven, it always felt like its going to rain, or the world suddenly went, from Technicolor, to black and white.

As a tribute to The Raven and Edgar Allan Poe, here are some fan art and posters that can serve as a visual element while reading the poem:

Considered as Poe’s most successful poem, The Raven has inspired different writers and artists in creating their craft. In recent times, writers like Neil Gaiman and Stephen King have referenced the Raven in the poem in many of their works as a tribute to Poe’s somber and eerie style of writing, which may have created the horror and suspense genre in different media.
