"The Murders in the Rue Morgue" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe published in Graham's Magazine in 1841. It has been claimed as the first detective story; Poe referred to it as one of his "tales of ratiocination". Similar works predate Poe's stories, including Das Fräulein von Scuderi (1819) by E.T.A. Hoffmann and Zadig (1748) by Voltaire.C. Auguste Dupin is a man in Paris who solves the mysterious brutal murder of two women. Numerous witnesses heard a suspect, though no one agrees on what language was spoken. At the murder scene, Dupin finds a hair that does not appear to be human.As the first true detective in fiction, the Dupin character established many literary devices which would be used in future fictional detectives including Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Many later characters, for example, follow Poe's model of the brilliant detective, his personal friend who serves as narrator, and the final revelation being presented before the reasoning that leads up to it. Dupin himself reappears in "The Mystery of Marie Roget" and "The Purloined Letter".… (més)

The Purloined Letter is the best of the three (Rue Morgue, Marie Roget, Purloined Letter) --- It is the total prototype for Holmes and Watson. I wish Poe had written more of these Dupin novels!

Marie Roget was hard to follow and not as well done because he was following historical sources of the actual mystery of Mary Rogers in NYC. That is a fascinating backdrop for the story (and I wants to read more about that actual mystery - still unsolved) but unfortunately it dampens his writing and is very plodding. ( )

This story has somewhat less emotional intensity than Poe's gothic horrors such as The Pit and the Pendulum and The Tell-Tale Heart. Yet that's perfectly appropriate, since this is a very different kind of story. In some ways it's the antithesis of the gothic, because here it is reason, not emotion, that's ascendant, that's the star of the show, so to speak. The trick for Poe is how to make it interesting nonetheless. He solves this conundrum by basically inventing the genre of detective fiction. Auguste Dupin is the progenitor of everyone from Sherlock Holmes to Hercule Poirot, using the same techniques of logic and deduction to solve a gruesome double murder. Dupin isn't as fully formed as Holmes or Poirot, and the story lacks some of the suspense-building elements of those later stories, but Poe continues to amaze me in this wonderful tale. ( )
