Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 151 – Murders in the Rue Morgue

Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe

This week, something a little different. The genesis of many of the detectives in fiction began with Edgar Allan Poe’s Murders in the Rue Morgue. His detective creation was one C. Auguste Dupin, and his method of solving a crime was as Poe referred to it – ratiocination.  Dupin was the inspiration for detectives whose deductive reasoning methods became famous including Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Christie’s Hercule Poirot. This particular radio play comes from The Weird Circle better known for being a horror program. But the horror is really downplayed here and the deductive reasoning is in high gear.
