Poe’s and Quine’s ravens spotted adjacent on Foyles shelf

 
Edgar Allan Poe’s raven was spotted perching in Foyles today, doubtless on a spring break from the pallid bust of Pallas just above Poe’s chamber door. Even on its vacation the raven was diligent in haunting its creator … which happened to bring it into a photographic-negative relationship, and moral counterpoint, with the pallid bust of Quine’s platinum-blonde raven beside it. My thanks to an anonymous passing wildlife photographer.
