Summary
"Employing the methods of Poe's own detective, Edgar Allan Poe and the Dupin Mysteries offers new and surprising discoveries about Poe's stories "the Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Mystery of Marie Roget," and "The Purloined Letter." Kopley sheds new light on the beginnings of the modern detective tale and anchors Poe to his rightful place within the genre. Offering archival study and biographical analysis, as well as a reprint of the three stories, this book is an insightful and useful guide for students and experts alike."--BOOK JACKET
