Birds and bells : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Hi, I am just wondering if any of you know if Poe ever refered to a connection between a bird (probably a raven or similar) and a bell. It has been suggested to me that this is the case but i don't know where to start.

Any help gratefully received Rachel

While there most certainly may be such a reference by Poe to such a connection, personally, I am unaware of the work of Poe in which it may have occurred. In the poem "The Raven", there is no obvious interpretable reference to 'bells' and, to my recollection, in the poem "The Bells", there is no clear or implicit connection to a bird. Sorry...
