Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 438 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from Great Short Stories, Vol. 1This and the two stories that follow it constitute a trilogy of stories with related methods of construction. They were the first detective stories, and are still considered the most famous models of their kind. Written by a poor struggling, underpaid hack journalist at a time when literary inspiration was derived principally from abroad, they were first published 1841-5. Soon afterward The Murders in the Rue Morgue was translated into French and appeared in several French journals, notably the Charivari. This constitutes Poes introduction to a French audience, and it won for him a warmer and a more general recognition than he has ever had in this country. Judged by the extent of his influence on writers of short stories both here and abroad, Poe is the most important figure in American literature.
