Poe's Detective Stories
Edgar Allen Poe is most famous for his gothic stories of horror and the macabre--most of today's horror writers acknowledge him as the father of the genre. But Poe is also the creator of another popular genre of fiction--the detective story. Forty years before Arthur Conan Doyle dreamed of Sherlock Holmes, Poe's detectives were using logic to solve murders, thefts, and other crimes. We'll discuss two of Poe's stories from Tales of terror and detection: The Mystery of Marie RogĂȘt and The Purloined Letter and get to know the world's first super detective, C. Auguste Dupin. Book discussion will be led by Scott Coykendall.
