About Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) gilt als bedeutendster Vertreter der amerikanischen Romantik und als Urvater der Kriminal- und phantastischen Literatur. Seine Kriminal- und Gruselgeschichten sind, ob als Gedicht oder Erzählung, in besonderem Maße von seinem analytischen Scharfsinn und seinem Hang zum Makaberen geprägt und haben einen großen Einfluss auch auf die europäische Literatur ausgeübt.
