AUTUMN SPECIAL: Listening Rooms! Listening Rooms!

After the success of the Pirate Story Listening Room at this year's Pirate Cove, our Shandon Loring has expanded the idea for one of our favorite times of year.  Not one, but TWO listening rooms are now available for your 24/7 story pleasure.

THE RAVEN'S CHAMBER focuses specifically on Edgar Allen Poe's 1845 narrative Poem: The Raven. The poem makes use of folk, mythological, religious, and classical references, and was inspired in part by a talking raven in the novel Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty by Charles Dickens. Poe additionally borrows the complex rhythm and meter of Elizabeth Barrett's poem "Lady Geraldine's Courtship", and makes use of internal rhyme as well as alliteration throughout.  "Traditional" and "Alternate" readings of the poem can be heard in the room on stream, along with other interpretive content.

THE GHOST STORIES LISTENING ROOM takes a broader scope, offering haunting tales in comfortably spooky atmosphere.

Both listening rooms can be reached via the panels shown above, at the back wall of the Seanchai Library Story Floor (main floor). Just click on them for an informational notecard, and to be offered a map teleport to the individual locations.

Enjoy these offerings?  Got feedback?  Share them via notecard with Shandon Loring.
