Found this by accident on the interwebs: Biography.com has published a list of ten of the most standout examples of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem “The Raven” in popular culture. #1 is pretty obvious: the inaugural “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons back in 1990, in which they did a performance of the poem (with James Earl Jones as the narrator), which includes the classic bit where “Quoth the raven” is followed by Bart saying, “Eat my shorts” instead of “Nevermore.” #2 is the Baltimore Ravens (which should probably get the top spot, but whatever).
The cool part? #9 on the list is my 2007 Supernatural novel Nevermore!
Quoth the article:
Author Keith R. A. DeCandido’s 2007 novel is the first in a book series based on the dark fantasy television show Supernatural. The plot follows main characters Sam and Dean Winchester (portrayed on TV by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, respectively) investigating murders inspired by several of Poe’s short stories, including 1843’s “The Tell-Tale Heart and “1846’s”The Cask of Amontillado.”
