GREAT MOMENTS IN HORROR HISTORY


Good evening. This one's for all you horror history buffs. On this date in 1845, Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" was first published in The New York Evening Mirror.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door —
Only this, and nothing more."
[The Raven by E.A. Poe. First Stanza]
