Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Gustave Dore (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Raven FULLY ILLUSTRATED Edgar Allan Poe Illustrated by Gustave Dore The Raven is a narrative poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. First published in January 1845, the poem is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. It tells of a talking raven s mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man s slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word Nevermore. The poem makes use of a number of folk, mythological, religious, and classical references. Poe claimed to have written the poem very logically and methodically, intending to create a poem that would appeal to both critical and popular tastes, as he explained in his 1846 follow-up essay, The Philosophy of Composition. The poem was inspired in part by a talking raven in the novel Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty by Charles Dickens. Poe borrows the complex rhythm and meter of Elizabeth Barrett s poem Lady Geraldine s Courtship, and makes use of internal rhyme as well as alliteration throughout.

Book Description Omo Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Gustave Dore (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Edgar Allen Poe was central to the American romantic movement in literature, as both a poet and a writer of fiction. He was one of the inventors of the horror story and of the mystery story. The Raven, written in 1845, was his most successful poem. His father abandoned his family at the time of his birth, and his mother died when he was one year old: his difficult childhood and the financial difficulties that came from supporting himself purely by writing undoubtedly contributed to the overwrought emotional tone of his writing. He died in 1849, at the age of 40, after he was found wandering the streets of Baltimore in a delirium, wearing clothing that was not his own and talking incoherently. The cause of his death is not known. Gustave Dore was an artist, sculptor, and one of the greatest book illustrators of the nineteenth century, famous for his illustrations of Don Quixote, the Bible, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Paradise Lost, Idylls of the King, the Divine Comedy, and other books. A New York Published paid him 30,000 Francs for his illustrations for The Raven, which was published in 1884. France made him a Chevalier de la Legion d honneur in 1861. He died at the age of 51 in 1883. Poe s writing and Dore s illustrations make this work one of the most beautiful books of the nineteenth century. This edition reproduces the cover and title page of the first American edition, as well as reproducing all of Dore s illustrations. Unlike other editions, this edition includes the entire text of the poem on the pages facing the appropriate illustrations, so you can read Poe s poem while enjoying Dore s art. NOTE: The reviews of this book on amazon and the links to other formats apply to all editions of The Raven, not to this edition. Amazon will not unlink this edition s page from other editions without written authorization from the author - which is a bit hard to get from someone who has been dead for over a century and a half.

Book Description Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Gustave Dore (illustrator). Illustrated. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was born Edgar Poe to a Scots-Irish family in Boston, Massachusetts. He was an American poet, short story writer, editor, literary critic, and one of the leaders of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the early American practitioners of the short story and a progenitor of detective fiction and crime fiction. He is also credited with contributing to the emergent science fiction genre. He was the first American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. Poe s publishing career began humbly with an anonymous collection of poems called Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827), credited only by a Bostonian. At some point he was using the pseudonym Henri Le Rennet. In January 1845, Poe published The Raven to instant success. Some of his other works are: The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket (1838); Tales of The Grotesque and Arabesque (1840); and The Prose Romances of Edgar A. Poe (1843).
