Basil Rathbone Reads Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven

“Nothing stirred over the vast expanse save a pair of ravens…”

BasilRathboneReadsEdgarAllanPoe565With Halloween approaching later this week, we present this recording of Basil Rathbone doing a dramatic reading of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.

Poe is widely credited with creating the genre of detective fiction and his character of Dupin is referred to in A Study in Scarlet. To your truly, when I picture Sherlock Holmes, I see Basil Rathbone.

In the spirit of the holiday…..

Nevermore!
