- “The Raven” — First published in American Review in 1845. Poe had attempted to publish it in Graham’s Magazine first, but Graham turned it down. It was originally published under the name “Quarles,” not “Edgar Allan Poe.” It was an immediate success and was quickly published in many magazines and newspapers across the country. It also prompted a publisher to put out an entire book of Poe’s poems. (http://eapoe.org/works/info/pp073.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_raven)
