João Lauro Fonte’s next shirt will feature a portrait of H.P. Lovecraft made of a dozen itty bitty unspeakable horrors.



I certainly hope this is true.

Many years ago, the Simpsons annual Halloween-themed program, Treehouse of Horror, featured a fantastic abridged rendition of The Raven, which I was recently thrilled to find online. Forward to 16:00 for Lisa introducing James Earl Jones!

Another Poe shirt to rally against.

If nothing else I would of liked a different story referenced... A poe made out of rue morgues perhaps?



$10 for anyone able to make a Poe shirt out of

*SPOILER*

orangutans.

ya know, Poe wasn't just a one-trick pony. He wrote a lot more poems than just "The Raven".

Why is it always "The Raven"? Can't we celebrate some of his other works for a change?

They don't call it a murder of crows for nothing.



Haha. Of course these are ravens, but their collective noun is "a conspiracy" so your theory still works! :^)

Thanks for the link, Jestik. I have read more Poe poetry today than I ever recall reading before. If you know what I mean.

That many birds can't be very sanitary. I hope everybody remembers to wash your hands after handling this shirt.

Some may think this shirt is crap because it has Poe on it made from birds that do caw caw but I really like it so I'm in.

I thought all of the puns on this thread were awful; it turns out they were brilliant. Who knew?

It started as a conspiracy until they did the deed.
Maybe they won't crow about it but they'll be caught when they go crazy from hearing that poe dead man's heart beating under their floor.

Love the symbolism. Especially since the Poem itself is full of symbolism.

Symbolism was a late nineteenth-century art movement in poetry and other arts.
The term "symbolism" is formed from the word "symbol" which derives from Latin symbolum, a symbol of faith, and symbolus, a sign of recognition. (Recognize Poe in the shirt?)
Symbolists believed that art should aim to capture truths which could be accessed by indirect methods. (Truth: Poe wrote The Raven and you recognized that in the shirt.)
Although Oscar Wilde,Jean Moréas, and Paul Adam are all more known for their symbolic poetry, Poe had his moments.

Thanks so much for the link to the animated version of The Telltale Heart! I just read that for a Literature of Madness course this semester.

This shirt is mine!

We already have a lovely, indomitable Raven shirt here. Less creepy (and not in the good Poe way) too.
Poe wrote things BESIDES the Raven you know. Arguably better things. Do we really need so many shirts to honor that particular one?

I already have a Poe/Raven shirt, and I think one is enough. However, I would buy an H.P. Lovecraft version of this instantly.

You might even say it's four-and-twenty black birds baked into a Poe. I might have miscounted them, though.

Wow. The first time I try to buy a shirt, I get a message that Paypal didn't go thru, try again. So I go back to try again and it says SOLD OUT! That just sucks. I got robbed by your lousy payment system. Tee Fury has never f'd me over like that.

Unfortunately, this happened because just as you were trying to buy the shirt, it had sold out in the previous sale(s) and would be returning errors to all current buying attempts until it flipped itself to the sold out page.

This shirt will continue to be for sale starting tomorrow (at midnight central time) at the regular day-after-first-sale price of $15. Here's the link. All shirts continue to be sold after the first day, sell out or not, for at least a week. Please read the FAQ for further information.
