The Simpsons The Raven

Well it referenced in one of yesterday’s linked posts, the mention of The Simpsons, certainly a part of pop culture. So I couldn’t let the moment slip away to not find and share The Simpsons version of The Raven from one of those great Halloween episodes they put on every year….have we reached twenty years yet, I think we may have. I’m not certain I can picture any other “cartoon” that has made it this far and that has become such an ingrained part of our culture. I’ve been married as long as that show has been on TV.

This is the audio of the episode with the poem “Raven” in Simpsons posted by LifesLaban at YouTube.

Poe’s The Raven in Art and Animation

I mentioned Edgar Allan Poe in a post on animated poetry during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I thought wouldn’t it be nice. Well I found something really cool at YouTube. One of those things that make you wonder if the author had been alive to see a reinterpretation of his work what would he think. I think Poe would have thought everything was really cool about this piece.

It is a musical rendition of Poe’s The Raven done by The Alan Parsons Project from their album, Tales of Mistery and Imagination, Edgar Allan Poe. It features the art illusions of Rob Gonsalves, he has a new fan. With special recognition to YouTube user Nesil here is The Raven.
