Most famous for his poetry, short stories, and tales of the supernatural, mysterious, and macabre, he is also regarded as the inventor of the detective genre and a contributor to the emergence of science fiction, dark romanticism, and weird fiction. His most famous works include “The Raven” (1945), "The Black Cat” (1943), and “The Gold-Bug” (1843).
