Edgar Allan Poe, “The Mystery of Marie Rogêt”


The first murder mystery based on the details of a real crime-


The Mystery of Marie Rogêt, often subtitled A Sequel to “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, is a short story written in 1842. This is the first murder mystery based on the details of a real crime. It first appeared in Snowden’s Ladies’ Companion in three installments, November and December 1842 and February 1843.


Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American short-story writer, poet, critic, and editor who is famous for his cultivation of mystery and the macabre. His tale The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1841) initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction.

Poe’s work owes much to the concern of Romanticism with the occult and the satanic. It owes much also to his own feverish dreams, to which he applied a rare faculty of shaping plausible fabrics out of impalpable materials. With an air of objectivity and spontaneity, his productions are closely dependent on his own powers of imagination and an elaborate technique.
