An Analysis of Edgar Allan Poe’ s Mystery Stories

from the Visual Dimension

  1. Introduction

1.1 A brief introduction to Poe and his mystery stories

Edgar Allan Poe, one of the foremost pioneers of the 19th century American Renaissance (1809-1849), has made remarkable achievements in novels, poems, literary criticism and other aspects. People regard him as the originator of the western decadence literature, the promoter of aestheticism literature, the explorer of abnormal psychology, and the pioneer of American detective novels. Among his various works, his mystery novels are currently being studied most widely and deeply. With the imagination of strange and horrifying story plots, he expressed the crisis of human nature through rhetorical devices such as exaggeration, metaphor and symbolism, aroused readers’ interest in reading and provoked their deeper thinking.

In the past more than 100 years, the study of both Allan Poe and his works at home and abroad has been developing and deepening, ranging from the traditional academic research to the macro and micro, vertical and horizontal, diachronic and synchronic combinations of cultural perspective, with broader vision, more varied perspectives and more flexible means. History, politics, economy, art, race and gender have become the topics of researching Poe. In recent years, many domestic scholars have paid close attention to the spiritual world, Poe’s death consciousness, and the thinking of humanity. Influenced by Western cultural studies, many scholars have discussed the works in the context of cultural factors in Poe’ s works, showing a tendency of interdiscipline. Of course, compared with the study into Faulkner, Hemingway and other literary giants in recent years, the research about Poe is still lagging behind.
