c. raven

The scene appears in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."  It was written by Lewis Carroll.  He was born on Jan. 27, 1832.

Carroll never intended to come up with an answer to the Hatter's question, "Why is a raven like a writing desk?"  But over the years, his fans have come up with their own answers such as the following:

-- They both produce notes though neither are musical

-- Because Poe wrote on both
