Introduction

Placido Reyes Jr. Eng. 12-D12a Professor Athanasourelis Compare and Contrast: Edgar Allan Poe & Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle Date: 9/19/12 Do your enjoy reading enticing sorties that will cause you not to put the book down? Edgar Allan Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are two of the many good writers that ever lived. Authors Edgar Allan Poe and Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle both know how to catch the reader's attention and hold it. Both authors enjoy writing short fictional stories about intriguing plots. In addition both authors would give the reader the psychological ride of a lifetime. Edgar Allan Poe sure knew how to keep the reader entertained with crazy stories. ...read more.

So the king hires a detective to retrieve the picture. The detective goes through many loop holes in order to infiltrate the house of the person blackmailing the king. Both stories contain exciting plots that makes it hard for you to put the book down, because of the interesting things that are currently happening as you go along. Edgar Allan Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are similar in taste when it comes to writing a stories but once you have read a few stories from each of the authors you can notice some of the pretty noticeable differences.

Conclusion

Even though he sometimes throws you off for a little bit off-track but puts you right back. Doyle on the other hand the other side, gives you small bits and pieces of the story?s conclusion but entirely but give you an idea of what might outcome. Makes you think like a detective and gives you the stripes for finishing the story (a great conclusion). To sum it all up, both authors know how to entertain their clients and know how to keep making them coming back for more. I really enjoyed reading ?The Murders in the Rue Morgue? it was a psychological roller coaster with some really wacky friends to tag along. I would encourage students to read Edgar Allan Poe?s work. ...read more.
