This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven includes:

• All 25 illustrations by Gustave Doré for Harper & Brothers’ 1884 edition
• An informative Introduction
• A detailed Biography of Edgar Allan Poe
• The illustrated version and text-only version of the full poem

No
poem has ever received the kind of immediate and overwhelming response
that Poe’s “The Raven” did when it first appeared in the New York
Evening Mirror
on January 29, 1845. It made Poe an overnight sensation
(though his great fame never brought him much wealth) and the poem, a
powerfully haunting elegy to lost love, remains one of the most beloved
and recognizable verses in the English language. The illustrations that
accompany this Top Five Classics edition are reproductions of the
renowned French artist Gustave Doré’s steel-plate engravings created for
Harper & Brothers’ 1884 release of The Raven. It would be Doré’s
last commission as he died shortly after completing the 25 illustrations
in January 1883. His illustrations would become famous in their own
right, evoking as they do the lyrical and mystical air of Poe’s
masterpiece.
