„Corbul” lui E.A. Poe, poate cel mai valoros poem în limba engleză, a fost foarte apreciat la noi, între alţii, de Ion Vinea, Ion Barbu şi Nicolae Steinhardt. Aici în interpretarea lui Vincent Price.
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.
„‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, „tapping at my chamber door–
Only this, and nothing more.”
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.
