Los Crimenes De La Rue Morgue


Los cr menes de la calle Morgue (The Murders in the Rue Morgue en ingl's), tambi n conocido como Los asesinatos de la calle Morgue o Los asesinatos de la rue Morgue, es un cuento del g nero policiaco y de terror del escritor estadounidense Edgar Allan Poe, publicado por primera vez en en la revista Graham's Magazine, de Filadelfia, en el mes de abril de 1841. Se trata del primer relato de detectives propiamente dicho de la historia de la literatura, o sea, la primera historia sobre detectives que tiene todos los elementos que m's tarde se van a retomar como caracter'sticos de las novelas policiales.Se produce el b rbaro asesinato de dos mujeres, madre e hija ,en un apartamento de una populosa calle de Par's. Las primeras pesquisas que lleva a cabo la brigada de investigaciones no dan resultado alguno, evidenci ndose la impotencia de la polic a para esclarecer los hechos. Finalmente se hace cargo del asunto un detective aficionado, M. Dupin, quien tras intensa y brillante investigaci n, ofrece una explicaci n extraordinaria."Los cr menes de la calle Morgue", aparte del primer relato polic aco, es asimismo el primer misterio de "habitaci n cerrada", en el que se reta al lector a resolver un enigma aparentemente insoluble y planteado en un mbito muy concreto y delimitado. Los temas del cuento son dos esencialmente: la brutalidad ciega y su oponente dial ctico, el raciocinio, o, en un nivel metaf rico, las tinieblas y la luz; y, como en todo relato detectivesco que se precie, 'sta al final saldr triunfante.Edgar Allan Poe fue un escritor, poeta, cr tico y periodista rom ntico estadounidense, generalmente reconocido como uno de los maestros universales del relato corto, del cual fue uno de los primeros practicantes en su pa's. Fue renovador de la novela g tica, recordado especialmente por sus cuentos de terror. Considerado el inventor del relato detectivesco, contribuy asimismo con varias obras al g nero emergente de la ciencia ficci n. Por otra parte, fue el primer escritor estadounidense de renombre que intent hacer de la escritura su modus vivendi, lo que tuvo para l lamentables consecuencias.Por motivos econ micos, pronto dirigi sus esfuerzos a la prosa, escribiendo relatos y cr tica literaria para algunos peri'dicos de la poca; lleg a adquirir cierta notoriedad por su estilo c ustico y elegante. Debido a su trabajo, vivi en varias ciudades: Baltimore, Filadelfia y Nueva York. En Baltimore, en 1835, contrajo matrimonio con su prima Virginia Clemm, que contaba a la saz n trece a os de edad. En enero de 1845, public un poema que le har a c lebre: "El cuervo.
