    Christopher Walken Reading Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" Will Make Your Literary-Loving Heart Explode

    Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered about more cowbell.

    Let's face it: You're probably a total bookworm.

    An English major with a creative writing minor perhaps?

    And you literally love all things literature.

    And there's a likelihood that you're down with alliteration, too.

    Which is why nothing on God's good Earth could be better than listening to The Raven...

    Edgar Allan Poe, yasssssssss.

    Read by professional creep-master Christopher Walken.
