A Raven Named Grip : How a Bird Inspired Two Famous Writers, Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe, Hardback Book

A Raven Named Grip : How a Bird Inspired Two Famous Writers, Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe Hardback

Illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham

Hardback

Description

The endearing true story of how a love of birds connected and inspired two literary giants--Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe. Years before Edgar Allan Poe's raven said "Nevermore," Charles Dickens' pet raven, Grip, was busy terrorizing the Dickens children and eating chipped paint.

So how exactly did this one mischievous bird make a lasting mark on literature?

From England to the United States and back again, this is the true and fascinating story of how a brilliant bird captured two famous authors' hearts, inspired their writing, and formed an unexpected bond between them.

This ingenious slice of history, biography, and even ornithology celebrates the fact that creative inspiration can be found everywhere.
