|That was beautiful. So symbolic and rich.|
I'm a lover of Poe, and I always cringe when I see people making half-assed attempts with his poetry, because no one ever gets it right. I think you did a mesmerizing job with it, though, and captured the essence of the Raven so well. Very well done. And kudos for not explaining all the symbolism within the text-- gives the dedicated reader a gift to unwrap one b eautiful layer at a time.
Author's Response: High praise indeed! Thank you! I love using symbolism in my stories, so I'm very tickled you picked up on that.
