The Modern Library prides itself as ''The modern Library of the world s Best Books'' . Since 1917 its paperback series has featured treasured classics, major translations of great works, and rediscoveries of keen literary and historical merit. Featuring introductions by leading writers, stunning translations, scholarly endnotes and reading group guides. Production values emphasize superior quality and readability. Competitive prices, coupled with exciting cover design make these an ideal gift to be cherished by the avid reader. Between 1841 and 1844, Edgar Allan Poe invented the genre of detective fiction with three mesmerizing stories of a young French eccentric named C. Auguste Dupin. Introducing to literature the concept of applying reason to solving crime, these tales brought Poe fame and fortune to live on. Years later, Dorothy Sayers would describe The Murders in the Rue Morgue as almost a complete manual of detective theory and practice. Indeed, Poe s short mysteries inspired the creation of countless literary sleuths, among them Sherlock Holmes. Today, the Dupin stories still stand out as unique, utterly engrossing page-turners. This Modern Library edition reproduces the definitive texts of the three tales. It includes an enlightening Introduction by novelist Matthew Pearl and an Appendix, The Earliest Detectives.
