A reading of 'Rebecca', a masterpiece of gothic literature written by English female novelist Daphne Du Maurier and published in 1938.
'The moment I first met you, I noticed your pride, your sense of superiority, and your selfish disdain for the feelings of others. You are the last man in the world whom I could ever be persuaded to marry,' said Elizabeth Bennet. And so Elizabeth rejects the proud Mr Darcy. Can nothing overcome her prejudice against him? And what of the other Bennet girls - their fortunes, and misfortunes, in the business of getting husbands? This famous novel by Jane Austen is full of wise and humorous observation of the people and manners of her times.

A classic, spooky Halloween Poem... nonsense verses.
An animated version of Edgar Allan Poe's poem. Lisa reads "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. In this adaptation, Bart is depicted as the raven, Homer finds himself in the role of the poem's lead character, while Lisa and Maggie are seraphim. Marge appears briefly as a painting of Lenore. James Earl Jones narrates.
The characters speak American English, the reader of the poem speaks with a British accent (sounds more elegant and appropriate for reading poems, even if this poem is in fact by an American writer)
