It’s nearly midnight, of course, and our troubled protagonist is having difficulty sleeping … or so he thinks. With the Raven acting as a grim and mischievous tour guide, both the positively dead and the presumed living give breath to thrilling Poe re-tellings of his greatest works, including “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Raven” and more.
