I still think that Edgar Allan Poe is an insufferable sap, but when one of my favourite artists illustrates his work I have to add the book to my collection anyways. Dulac’s take on Poe may be one of the darkest I’ve seen, since his ever-moody palette of jewel tones evokes a sensuality that is otherwise absent in some of the other versions I’ve seen. Even out of context (since, let’s be honest, I stopped trying to deal with Poe’s melodramatic poetics), the images set the scene for some wondrous stories, even if they retain a melancholic undertone. Dulac generally doesn’t seem to be one for frivolity in his artwork, so in this sense he is well-suited to illustrating Poe’s terse characters and their sad lives, completely ignoring the softly magical and happier moods that do occasionally appear. Yet, I don’t know if I would count Dulac’s version of these poems as one of my top favourites, since the characters are missing the majesty of his other work and come off more stilted than expected. Though maybe that’s just how he saw Poe: moody and emotional, but a bit too uptight to fall into romanticism. ( )

I liked some poems more than others. They average out quite close to three. Phillip Pullman's introduction was perfect. ( )

Who knew that Poe was such a sap? Almost all of the poems in this collection had the narrator whinging on about some lady love or other, whether she was dead or not, so I was pretty bored the whole time. I most certainly will not be bothering to pick up any more of his poetry. ( )

2020 Review (Hardcover edition)

I'm honestly still not a fan of Edgar Allan Poe and his melodramatic proto-emo aesthetic, but I did enjoy Gustav Doré's accompanying illustrations to The Raven and Other Poems. Doré's stark black and white woodcuts capture the melancholy setting of many of the poes, placing them solidly in the Victorian era and setting a timeless tone for readers. In some ways, Doré's expressive characterization paris perfectly with Poe's overly emotional protagonist and brings out his sadness at losing his love and his anger at the raven; unfortunately for those of us who think he's a rather goofy sap, this only feeds our dislike of him. The other poems in the collection were much more loosely illustrated, as they each stand alone without a larger narrative, and while they were well done they didn't stand out that much. Ironically, the one poem that I did enjoy ("Dream-land") is scarcely illustrated, with only one small and faded landscape to show for all its lush imagery. Overall, I have to sat the book isn't very successful, for all of Doré's skill, but mostly because I can't really engage with most of the literary contents from Poe. ( )

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 some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
