His hometown won the Superbowl..that's why they're called the Baltimore Ravens.

I think that it is very long and confusing. I had to analyze this poem in 6th grade. Boy, did that take me along time. I think it is a very good poem and scary at the same time! A true masterpiece from a poet who was a drinker and depressed all the time!

ps. I am not trying to ruin E.A. Poe's good name, with my drunk poet bit.

Poe was kicked out of UVa for gambling and his high debts...or at least several different sources say so.. Wink/being sarcastic

I think Bart Simpson had the best comment on the Raven.

"It is like the Friday the Thirteenth Movies. When the first came out they were pretty scary but now...ehhh.

I hate the ravens!
Ten years back, having a sandwich and a Coke on top of an Icelandic volcano, I took took off my sunglasses and put them besides my backpack on the lava.
A raven landed, picked up my sunglasses and flew away.
Damn bastard! It was quite expensive glasses, Ray Ban. If only I had had a shotgun...

Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs

HAHAHAHAH!

That does sound like a ravenish thing to do. They are quite mischievous, and are one of the few animals that can be observed doing things just for fun.
