The Raven and More Halloween Scares

By October 25, 2013

Follow me on:

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."

The Raven

Thus begins The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe, one of the creepiest poems of all time. It's perfect reading for advanced level English learners - especially with the more difficult vocabulary defined. Here are some further Halloween resources for this upcoming season of trick or treat.
