Publisher's Summary

In this wholly original reading/performance of the immortal Edgar Allan Poe's most famous poem, actor/performer Bill Mills goes beyond the stereotypical rhythmic rendition, intoned in a sepulchral voice, and instead presents Poe's words as the increasingly deranged dialogue of a man with a visitant he comes to see as an omen. It is an omen that neither in this life or the next shall he possess the one woman he loves beyond all reason.Produced in honor of the anniversary of the death of this legendary author and poet, the performance is enhanced with evocative music and sound effects and is preceded by an introductory tribute and Poe mini-biography written by producer and performer Bill Mills.

Great reading, but the Intro was unneeded

An excellent reading of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven:" Dramatic, well presented, appropriate atmosphere and Bill Mills' characterization is great!

I almost felt compelled to dock one star from the rating because of the long and, in my opinion, unnecessary bio of the author that takes up the first third of the recording. A short opening bio might have been useful (maybe 2 minutes), but this went on for way too long.

So, 5 stars for the Raven, but consider skipping the intro.
