“Once Upon a Midnight Dreary, . . . “

“. . . while I pondered,
weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten
lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came
a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my
chamber door.”   The Raven [1845], st. 1

On this day in 1845, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” was published for the first time in the New York Evening Mirror.
