Talk:The Raven (Poe)
i need to find parodies of this poem!
Here's a parody...
Song: The Raven
Artist: MC Lars
Not quite a parody, but quite a clever reference:
In the Terry Pratchett Discworld novels there is a raven used by the Death Of Rats as a mount. This is a rather clever raven who refuses point blank to say "the N word", his name is Quoth.
Gnu "Midnight Dreary"
Look at "Midnight Dreary" at the gnu website.

I'm not sure which version is the correct version. I've googled for both, and found results. Several versions use "fancy", and several others use "sad soul". Does anyone have a hard copy to compare? Jude (talk,contribs,email) 09:19, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
All the versions I've ever seen use "my sad fancy".
Source should be exactly noted
Which edition is used? (Publisher, year. etc) --188.8.131.52 21:15, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
this is not the orignal
the poem is not the orignal cuz it dosent say anything about lonre and the ravn only says nevermore
so this is not the orignal poem
It says that the second illustration by Gustave Doré was drawn in 1884. That can't be true, because Doré died in 1883.
- It doesn't seem to say that at all. 1884 must be the publication date. I'll look into it and see what I can find. --Midnightdreary (talk) 01:47, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
