Edgar Allan Poe's renowned poem The Raven found perhaps its most perfect artistic interpreter in Gustave Dore, one of the most prolific and successful book illustrators of the late 19th century. Dore's dreamlike, otherworldly style, tinged with melancholy, seems ideally matched to the bleak despair of Poe's celebrated work.
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.
