The Raven

“Quoth the Raven, ‘Nevermore’.”

Saw movie called The Raven tonight with my sister and a mutual friend. It wasn’t bad as the metascore on it would suggest.

Looked up information about Edgar Allan Poe and found out that he married his first cousin when she was 13 and he was 27. Like, ew. Although they never consummated their marriage and their relationship was sibling-like than anything else, it leaves me to wonder if it still falls under pedophilia or not. Different times, I guess.

Still, ew.

However, in the movie, I was left with the impression that his love of his first wife was not entirely platonic, probably because there was a kissing scene with his current love. I’m guessing the producers of the film wanted to ignore the facts of his first marriage considering it is quite a huge taboo in this day and age.
