The raven is pretty famous and appears in one of Dickens’ novels. It may be that you associate ravens more with Poe, but the two are connected. Here are some facts about Dickens and Grip, his pet raven.
Ravens are fascinating and intelligent birds, that will forever tie Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe together. Both authors’ works stand as timeless classics in their own way, but knowing that Poe’s Raven was actually Dickens’ Grip puts an interesting slant on things.
