Summer Reading: The Raven

Yeah, yeah. I know. You read Poe’s The Raven already. Probably more than once. Quite possible you can recite it word for word.

But you haven’t read it like this.

The Library of Congress has scanned and hosted high resolution scans of a rare version of The Raven illustrated by Gustave Dore (best known for illustrating both Paradise Lost and most of Christian Death’s better albums). So read it again. Heck, read it to an impressionable child. After all, it’s Gothtober.
