Arthur Conan Doyle vs. Edgar Allan Poe
[ send me this essay ]
This is a 6 page paper comparing two of Poe's stories -- 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' and 'The Purloined Letter' -- with one of Conan Doyle's -- 'The Adventure of the Dancing Men' -- to demonstrate the heavy reliance of Sherlock Holmes' creator on the work of his predecessor, Poe. The paper concludes that actually Poe's stories and protagonist have more depth than Conan Doyle's, because Holmes' method relies entirely on logic and Dupin relies on behavior and nuance. No additional sources cited.
