“Hear the sledges with the bells, Silver bells, what a world of merriment their melody foretells!”

– Poe, ‘The Bells’

 

Edgar Allan Poe is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature, and he was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.
