A master of the mystery genre, Edgar Allan Poe was one of the first to create a fictional detective, C. Auguste Dupin, in "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." He would go on to invent, refine and cement many of the standards by which mystery stories are still judged.

From "Rue Morgue," to his other mystery fiction like "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket" and "The Purloined Letter," Poe practiced, invented and polished the key elements of the mystery with a skill that would be imitated and admired for generations.
