In this paper we seek to provide a general introductory overview and explanation of some features of Poe’s writing that have inspired many musicians, giving more specific attention to a relatively recent and celebrated product of such inspiration – Lou Reed’s album 'The Raven' (2003).The histrionic, the performance-related element in Poe’s life and work is an important and consistent feature in drawing many readers into his imagination and in keeping them there in his poems and his prose. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to consider the multifaced aspect of Poe's literary production which can be analysed from different perspectives,such as the main area of translation studies and, namely, in the translation and music.
