Edgar Allan Poe. “The Raven.” In The American Review: A Whig Journal of Politics, Literature, Art and Science. New York, Volume II, February 1845.

Set in type from Poe’s manuscript, “The Raven” was first printed in the American Review in January 1845 (although the issue is dated February 1845). The first appearance of the famous poem was published under the pseudonym “Quarles,” in keeping with the American Review’s practice of publishing poetry unsigned or under a pen name.

The poem struck an immediate chord with the public and was reprinted in magazines and newspapers throughout the country.
