First, we had Christopher Walken reading Where the Wild Things Are, the beloved children's book by Maurice Sendak (RIP). Now we have James Earl Jones reading "The Raven." In his unmistakably deep and distinguished-sounding voice, the award-winning Jones reads the haunting narrative poem by Edgar Allan Poe. You can listen in the YouTube video below.
