Above, we have Christopher Walken, whose unsettling weirdness is always tinged with a certain wry humor, perhaps an effect of his classical New York accent. The visual component, a montage of expressive pencil drawings, also may or may not work for you. We thank you! Is this amazing reading by Christopher Walken available somewhere without the annoying guitar in the background? All three readings were entertaining, but I have to agree with the others, the Christopher Walken was exceptional. Has anyone of you seen it? Name required. Email required.

by Edgar Allan Poe
It can seem that the writing of literature and the theory of literature occupy separate great houses, Game of Thrones -style, or even separate countries held apart by a great sea. Perhaps they war with each other, perhaps they studiously ignore each other or obliquely interact at tournaments with acronymic names like MLA and AWP. That rare beast, the academic poet, can seem like something of a unicorn, or dragon. The divide between theory and practice is a recent development, a product of state budgeting, political brinksmanship, the relentless publishing mills of academia that force scholars to find a pigeonhole and stay there…. Oh, for some proto-Edison in the room with an early recording device. Does Poe rotisserie in his grave as Homer snores in a wingback chair? But as the author told us himself at length, the poem works! It still never fails to excite our morbid curiosity, enchant our gothic sensibility, and maybe send a chill or two down the spine.
From Christopher Walken to Neil Gaiman, here are 10 celebrities putting their own spin on Poe's iconic verses. Everyone does a Christopher Walken impression, but rarely do they come close to matching the unique inflection of the real deal. For the Poe tribute album Closed on Account of Rabies , Walken recited the classic narrative poem as various haunting sound effects moaned and whistled in the background. There are very few actors whose voices are as iconic as James Earl Jones's. Of those credits, Lee has lent his skills and voice to numerous legendary characters, including Hamlet, Sherlock Holmes, and Dracula several times over. If Stan Lee hadn't gone into comics, he could very well have been a voice actor—at least based on his reading of "The Raven," a poem he said he at one point had memorized. To the world, William Shatner will always be Captain Kirk. Many recordings were made of this Shakespearean stage actor and star of many a Sherlock Holmes movie as he read the works of authors like Oscar Wilde, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and, of course, Poe. In the recording above, his voice fluctuates from calm and almost musical to loud and quite terrifying as things begin to escalate between man and bird. If you're familiar with the Internet at all, then you probably know Tay Zonday.
