And out of darkness came the hands…

…That reach thro’ nature, moulding men.
-Tennyson.

It’s the 19th of January. This, if memory serves, is the same video I posted last year. I tried to find something better and new, but to me there’s nothing to surpass this poem and the soft, yet somehow heavy and emotional voice of Jeff. He ‘got’ Poe. Not enough people do, considering how popular he is…

      Thanks. I just feel that he’s been made into some sort of icon which might not be completely inappropriate, but doesn’t do him justice. Like you pointed out, he’s not just “a mere writer of gothic horror”.
