The internet informs me that it’s National Poetry Day (edit: in the UK), and I’ve been reading Edgar Allan Poe all week for 31 Days of Halloween (more about that during the weekly roundup), so today I give you five brilliant actors reading Poe’s most famous poem, “The Raven.” Vincent Price and John De Lancie (Q!) are my personal favs.

(Video quality is variable, but the audio’s what counts.)

Vincent Price:

James Earl Jones:

Christopher Lee:

Christopher Walken:

John De Lancie:

  1. The Beethoven on the James Earl Jones one is pretty awesome.
