Edgar Allan Poe
Best-known for his tales of the macabre, Poe has been deemed, “the father of the modern mystery,” and is credited with the invention of both the detective story (“The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” featuring Auguste C. Dupin, the first-ever fictional detective) and the detective story sequel (“The Purloined Letter”). Poe is also credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.
Poe died at the age of 40 in October 1849 in Baltimore. Although the exact circumstances of his death itself remain a mystery, it has been attributed to the effects of alcoholism. Although he lived a short and tragic life, Edgar Allan Poe remains one of the most-beloved mystery writers in history. His contributions to literature and the mystery genre cannot be underestimated.
