The Raven still has it...

I'm a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, and I especially like his short story/poem The Raven. It was what introduced me to Poe, and it still gets at me every time. I decided to post a short excerpt of The Raven, just to add a bit of Edgar into your day (or night).

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; — vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow — sorrow for the lost Lenore —
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore —
            Nameless here for evermore.

Anybody have a favorite Poe story?
