By a complicated route usual for websurfing I came to listen James Earl Jones reading The Raven by Edgar Poe... and I like it, but something keeps being off for me in his intonation, and I can't figure out what it is. The best I can formulate is that his tone of voice seems to me a bit more monotonous than I'm used to, less amplitude. Is it that what I'm most used in listening to poetry read in English is English actors, and mostly Shakespeare? Or is it just the tone most suitable to this poem? Or just my imaginagion?

... must listen to more poetry.
