The Raven - Edgar Allan Poe

This picture was taken in Montreal in 2009.

Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer and poet.
The Raven was first published in 1845.

The Raven was translated to French by Stéphane Mallarmé, and Charles Baudelaire. The poem has also been illustrated by several artists, among them Gustave Doré and Édouard Manet.

"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, "Lenore!"
Merely this, and nothing more."

Bom, amei! Passa pela imagem uma sensação de silêncio, solidão e ausência de luz. É como se o próprio pássaro gritasse:
"Merely this and nothing more."
Não conheço o poema, mas fiquei com vontade de ler.
E para quando uma capinha japonaika?
