Happy Anniversary to "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe
Lots of "raven" news and articles lately.

168 years ago, Edgar Allen Poe published "The Raven", his most famous poem. Thought I might as well add this for today.

Happy Anniversary to "The Raven"

As you may know, on this day in 1845, one of the most famous birds in literature made its debut in the "New York Evening Mirror."
"The Raven" has probably made a larger impact on modern popular culture than that of any other poem ever written.


Watch "Margali's Midnight Matinee: The Raven", an animated cartoon from 1942, here:

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task
the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

"This man really is the Savior of the world!" John 4:42

Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;
and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, " says the Lord God, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:7

Re: Happy Anniversary to "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe
In coming up for a song in honor of the Baltimore Ravens making the Super Bowl, my first thought was Gram Parson’s “The Streets of Baltimore.” But Chimesfreedom has already covered that song, so I had to think back to another Parsons and a song I had not heard for many years, “The Raven” by The Alan Parsons Project.

“The Raven” first appeared on Tales of Mystery and Imagination: Edgar Allan Poe, the 1976 debut album by The Alan Parsons Project, perhaps best known for their 1982 progressive rock song “Eye in the Sky.” Tales is a compilation of songs inspired by the writer Edgar Allan Poe. The album title was inspired by a 1908 collection of Poe’s stories, Tales of Mystery & Imagination.

I was first introduced to the album when I was in college when Dave — one of my roommates who introduced me to a lot of new music at the time — noted my interest in literature and led me to this literary inspired album.

"My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. ... That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." - General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson
