“Thou Art the Man” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

The plot involves a man wrongfully accused of murdering his uncle Barnabas Shuttleworthy, whose corpse is missing. An unnamed narrator finds the body, suspects the victim’s good friend Charles Goodfellow, and sets up an elaborate plot to expose him.

So another enjoyable, fun and very quick short story from Edgar Allan Poe. 

The writing style is pretty decent, but Edgar Allan Poe was able to do much better than this one.

This story is an amazing to read even you looking for something to pass time with.

To be fully honest with you I need to say that this story is probably the most predictable story from Edgar Allan Poe. 

This story is sort of a detective story with huge gothic vibe. But i need to say it isn’t about solving a mystery. It’s more about exposing a murderer and clearing an innocent man from not being the murder. 

I give this poem 3 / 5
