Quoth the Professor

Posted by A Drop of Romeo at 4:39 PM

Inspired by true events, this is a satire of Edgar Allen Poe's ''The Raven,'' which any college student can relate to.

Helen Thinks: Ian Nathaniel Cohen has taken a classic poem that I believe most of the population will recognise and introduced it to the twenty first century with their fantastic writing. Using the layout and beat of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven”, Ian Nathaniel Cohen has created a masterpiece in “QUOTH THE PROFESSOR” that will have every reader relating to as it’s based on a student dozing in their class because of how boring it is, especially listening to their professor’s droning voice. As an ex-university student I can hand on heart relate to this poem and can state confidently that quite a few other readers can too. It is difficult giving a classic a new spin but Ian Nathaniel Cohen has not only managed to do that, but they have done it amazingly well. Even if you don’t know “The Raven” by Poe, I suggest you check out “QUOTH THE PROFESSOR” any way because it’s fantastic in all its own rights.
