"The Gold Bug", "Murders in the Rue Morgue",or "The Purloined Letter"?


Hi, Russ :) I prefer "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Premature Burial" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". But that's just me.


hey, Lady!!! Good choices, I may add- I personally prefer his literary criticism- really the first in the US, and still one of the best.


I agree wholeheartedly. He probably influenced my taste in literature more than I realize. I devoured his work as a kid and still admire his writing style. When I was little I used to pride myself in being able to recite most of "The Raven" from memory. (Perhaps I was a bit odd, now that I think about it :) He is one of the very few authors that I enjoy re-reading. As a matter of fact I was re-reading "The Oblong Box" three days ago ... lol!


I found his "exegesis" of "Kublai Khan" a masterwork. It may not be easily available anymore- it is just a re-print of a pamphlet that I have.


I don't have that in my collection. Now I will have to be "on the lookout" :) I don't like his detective stories as much as the others. I was a huge Alfred Hitchcock fan, too. I went through a spell in my youth where I tried Agatha Christie on for size. I liked Hercule Poirot better than Miss Marple, but I didn't like either well enough to ever read them again. I can't believe how many cheesy "horror" movies I have seen that are complete rip offs of Ten Little Indians. I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan either. I guess I just don't like detective stories ... lol :)


"The Purloined Letter" ... I remember reading a portion of this mystery in a Lit class in college. I usually enjoy Poe's works but I'll be honest, I had never heard of the other two you mentioned until today. (hiding in shame). ;)


D- Auguste Dupin- the model for Sherlock...


the only one i know is Murders in the Rue i will go with that...
