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 Doré 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 Doré’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 Doré’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 Doré’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.

Review:

Price s vision of The Raven not only haunts, but also brings Poe s work back to life. An ideal resource for teachers and students."

Price s illustrations make the viewer pause and consider the cracks in the narrator s mind, and they provide glimpses into the strange, violent story behind his torment."

(Price s pictures) do a great job of evoking the brooding guilt, terror, and love in Poe s famous poem ? lengthy appended notes will spark discussion on both the poem and the art."

From the Back Cover:

In Gustave Dore, one of the most prolific and successful book illustrators of the late 19h century, Edgar Allan Poe's renowned poem The Raven found perhaps its most perfect artistic interpreter. Dore's dreamlike, otherworldly style, tinged with melancholy, seems ideally matched to the bleak despair of Poe's celebrated work, among the most popular American poems ever written.
This volume reprints all 26 of Dore's detailed, masterly engravings from a rare 19th-century edition of the poem. Relevant lines from the poem are printed on facing pages and the complete text is also included. Admirers of Dore will find ample evidence here of his characteristic ability to capture the mood and meaning of a work of literature in striking imagery; lovers of The Raven will delight in seeing its mournful musing on love and loss given dramatic pictorial form.
A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative."
