Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer who lived from 1809 to 1849. His works are known for their use of mystery and horror to convey ideas about death and the human condition.

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart. It has been called "the world's greatest popular opera" and "the most successful musical in history".

The original production opened on May 21, 1988 at the London Palladium where it remained for two years. It then moved to New York City's Broadway Theatre where it played from 1990 to 1996 for a total of over 12,000 performances. The show has been performed around the world in various adaptations.

Poe wrote several stories featuring a character named "The Man of the Crowd"; this story may be based on his life as a journalist working in Baltimore. However, none of these stories have been proven to have been written by him.

What literary devices are used in The Murders in the Rue Morgue?

Two genres are crucial to the plot of The Murder in the Rue Morgue. As the first detective fiction ever written, Poe wanted to make it not only intriguing, but also terrifying. Poe selected unique literary strategies, such as imagery, to accentuate these two genres.

Poe's use of imagery is powerful and effective. He paints a picture with his words that cannot be forgotten by readers. For example, when describing the face of the corpse, Poe uses metaphors and similes to give life to an abstract concept: "The eye-balls were large and dark; the hair black; the skin tawny." This image is so vivid that it stays in readers' minds long after they have closed the book. Imagery is also useful when wanting to shock readers out of their comfort zone.

Poe also uses allusion to add depth to his story. An allusion is when one word or phrase from a different text appears in a sentence, and it gives meaning to this new sentence. In The Murder in the Rue Morgue, allusions can be found throughout the article. Some examples include: "The mysteriousness of crime has always been a source of fascination to mankind;" and "Man's criminal nature." These quotes help readers understand what kind of story they are going to read, and also what kind of feelings it will leave in their hearts.
