Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" read by John Astin

Here's an interesting reading of The Raven by John Astin, who honed his creepiness by originating the role of Gomez Addams on television - in The Addams Family in the 1960s - and who here bears an eerie resemblance to the poem's author, Edgar Allen Poe, which is an entirely new kind of creepy altogether...

The Raven was first published on this day in 1845 by the New York Evening Mirror.
