Birthday Boys

Yes, it is January 19th.  Edgar Allan Poe was born this day in 1809 and I, your humble author, was born exactly 168 years later (Dolly Parton shares our birthday, too, so a happy shout-out to her as well).

Of all Poe’s stories and poems, “The Raven” is my favorite.  It is a tradition with me to read it on our birthdays.  In celebration, I hope you enjoy this presentation of Poe’s poetic masterpiece by the great Christopher Lee.
