Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe's legacy

Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" was published on April, 14 1841.

Hailed as the first detective story, Poe sets a prototype of sorts for protagonists of future detective fiction, like Dame Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes.
April 14, 1841
