Dear Milum: I found a very large Poe site. If you scroll way down to the bottom, it gives a French translation of the Raven. I got a disconnect, and did not look at it.

Great site Bill, thanks, I put it on my one-click. Now I will laboriously try to
retranslate The Raven back into proper English.

Milum.

I was taught that "aux" before a vowel was pronounced like "ose" in "nose". I was also taught to padde my own que nous.

You mean like in Beaux Arts?

retranslate The Raven

My favourite "translation" of E. A. Poe is to music. The Alan Parsons Project album: Tales of Mystery and Imagination. Excellent version of 'The Raven', 'Tell-tale Heart' and 'Cask of Amontillado' amongst others...

Could "Pas d'elle yeux Rhone que nous," be the motto of a French individualist?


I thought that went "Pas de leur on connu!" :-)
