HOW POE RECITED THE RAVEN, The wikipedia entry on The Raven quotes one listener of Poe’s who said: “to hear [Poe] repeat the Raven … is an event in one’s life.” It quotes another: “He would turn down the lamps till the room was almost dark, then standing in the center of the apartment he would recite … in the most melodious of voices … So marvelous was his power as a reader that the auditors would be afraid to draw breath lest the enchanted spell be broken.”
