The portion of "The Raven" I included can be interpreted very differently when taken out of context. Excluding any mention of Lenore, the story becomes about a man who lets a talking crow into his house and argues with it despite knowing it cannot respond meaningfully. It's actually very silly. That story would do better with lively background music and canned laughter than it would with the dark piano that often accompanies it.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
