    One thought on “The Mystery of Marie Rogêt”

    1. القصة الثانية لأول مخبر في التاريخلغز أختفاء ماري روجيهولكني للاسف لا اعتبرها قصةهي خبر صحفي قرأ السيد دوبين كل ما كتب عنه في كل صحيفة بالتفصيل المملليقوم بعد ذلك بااستقراء لكل جوانب الحادث، ووضع الاحتمالات والاستنتاجاتحتي وضع خطة لحل اللغزفقط خطة -أكيدة- للحل، وهذا كل شئب [...]

    2. Oh. My. Gosh. Seriously. For reals? Did I actually really just read that? Can anyone think this is a good book? The first part was slightly interesting, but then it just got worse and worse and worse. Every second was like:Let me give you an example: "If, the feet of Marie being small, those of the corpse were also small, the increase of probability that the body was that of Marie would not be an increase in a ratio merely arthimetical, but in one highly geometrical, or accumulative."There is li [...]

    3. xroadsrginia/~hyper/POEOpening: THERE ARE few persons, even among the calmest thinkers, who have not occasionally been startled into a vague yet thrilling half-credence in the supernatural, by coincidences of so seemingly marvellous a character that, as mere coincidences, the intellect has been unable to receive them. Such sentiments- for the half-credences of which I speak have never the full force of thought- such sentiments are seldom thoroughly stifled unless by reference to the doctrine of [...]

    4. "Misterul Mariei Roget" este net inferioară nuvelei "Crimele din Rue Morgue". Ambele îl au ca protagoniste pe legendarul Auguste Dupin, ambele se bazează pe deducţii logice, ambele "anchete" pleacă de la nimic concret şi ajung să fie explicate pe zece căi lăturalnice.Lucrul interesant, specific acestei serii "criminale" (şi la propriu şi la figurat) e acela că autorul, Poe, da dovadă de o colosală erudiţie -îmbinând elemente ce aparţin unui cerc larg de ştiinţe, de sorginte r [...]

    5. This is the second in the Auguste Dupin detective series by Poe that I am going through and sadly less well written than the original. Though the mystery follows a real life murder mystery in the U.S. that Poe has mirrored and placed in France, it sadly falls flat in writing style. I will say that like Arthur Conan Doyle, Poe seems to have shown an interest in solving real life crimes in his personal time and this story was his offer of a solution which gives some very good arguments. Unfortunat [...]

    6. A story about a dragged dead body that feels like you're dragging a dead body. Based on the news report, the narrator speculates his opinions without leading anywhere. The end.

    7. Okay, I don't really know how to rate this. It was a completely different experience from The Murders in the Rue Morgue because Dupin basically decided to not let the narrator speak and just talked endlessly about his deductions without even pausing for a trip to the loo. It was almost unreadable. And then when it gets to the very end, suddenly the editors decided not to leave the part in where he solves it, "for reasons which we shall not specify". WTF??They did include his epilogue, but as a f [...]

    8. O Mistério de Maria Roget foi inspirado num caso real que a policia não havia conseguido desvendar. E. A. Poe escreveu uma história paralela e mais tarde a policia encarregada do caso, chegou às mesmas conclusões que o autor apresentou no livro.Não posso dizer que a leitura tenha sido muito entusiasmante. A narrativa nem sempre é fácil e o raciocínio policial, longo e complexo, cheio de fraseologia medico-legal, torna os extensos monólogos cansativos. O detetive Dupin faz a análise do [...]

    9. Basándose en artículos de un diario norteamericano, Poe crea con nombres casi iguales un crimen y lo desarrolla en esta historia en donde el genio deductivo de Auguste C. Dupin va tirando de la madeja de hilo hasta llegar a la verdad. Si bien es un poco tedioso por momentos, el cuento comienza a solventar el género policial junto con Los Crímenes de la Calle Morgue y La Carta Robada.

    10. The story itself is almost non-existent. There is some speculation, a body in the river and page after page describing possible clues. The ending of the story is not rewarding in the slightest and overall the story reads like a police report versus a story. The characters are practically vacant.

    11. So. Boring. There are only two good things about this short story that are worth mentioning. First of all, because of this story Mary Rogers, who was brutally murdered in 1841, has been immortalized. Chances are, without Poe's interest in the case of her murder, and his subsequent writing of this story, Mary Rogers would have been a murdered woman lost to history. So there's that.The second good thing that came out of this short story is The Beautiful Cigar Girl: Mary Rogers, Edgar Allan Poe, an [...]

    12. This story truly shows the brilliance of Poe. Many may not know that this is based on a true case. The footnote in my volume is amazing to me. It says that the true case: the murder of a girl named Mary Cecilia Rogers remained unsolved at poe's writing of the story, occurring in New York, and had several newspaper articles written about it. Poe's story paralleled the case, following "in minute detail the essential, while merely paralleling the inessential facts of the real murder". It "was compo [...]

    13. While it started out interesting, about 1/3 of the way through it got tedious, as it became clear that the entire story was just going to be a discussion between Dupin and the narrator. Even more frustrating, there's no real conclusion as you would hope to have in a mystery.That said, since this is considered to be the first "true crime" story it is pretty cool. In my opinion the fact that the real life New York City murder was unsolved (and still is) didn't have to necessitate that Poe not end [...]

    14. "We should bear in mind that, in general, it is the object of our newspapers rather to create a sensation--to make a point--than to further the cause of truth."I quoted that while in the middle of reading this story, mostly because I found it so poignant, but it also seems to be summary of the story itself. The "facts" are all laid out in various newspaper articles, then the brains of the operation (our Holmes-esque character), works through logic and deduction to solve the case. The actual outc [...]

    15. An Open-Letter to Edgar Allan PoeDear Mr. Poe,I know you probably have a lot of high school students writing to you, complaining about finding symbolism in The Raven or examining the psychology of the narrators in The Black Cat and The Tell Tale Heart. Don't worry. I'm not writing to complain about those things. In fact, I'm more than happy to do them. I just wanted to request a small thing of you: break down your paragraphs. A paragraph that is a page long is frightening, especially when it com [...]

    16. Αποτελώντας επί της ουσίας την 2η ιστορία στην σειρά των περιπετειών του "C. Auguste Dupin", είναι σαφέστατα κατώτερη της πρωκατόχου της, χωρίς όμως αυτό να σημαίνει πως ο πυρήνας της ίδιας είναι κακός ή αδιάφορος. Ακριβώς το αντίθετο. Κι αν αναλογιστούμε δε πως η συγκεκριμένη αστυν [...]

    17. No pude terminarlo. La historia iba interesante aunque algo lenta y tediosa en un principio pero luego con tanta explicación de parte de Dupin se vuelve insoportablemente aburrida. Llegué al punto de leer sin saber lo que estaba leyendo de lo muy aburrida que me pareció. Una lástima, porque de verdad le tenía fe a esta historia y tenía muchas ganas de leerla. Me decepcionó completamente.

    18. This was a very long analysis :/ :/ :/ as a sequel - the 2nd one from Dupin Series - I can't compare it to the first one, The Murders in Rue Morgue was amazing and very very interesting except for the ending :/ but this got nothing not the story nor the ending I didn't like :/ but I will finish the series and I hope that the last one is better than this.

    19. I hate giving Poe 2 stars, but I didn't care too much for this story. I was so confused and bored by all the details given that at the end of the story I had no idea "who did it". Apparently, based on another review I read, the whole point of the story was just to show how similar the crime against Marie Roget was to another crime, then nothing was really done about it.

    20. I usually love Poe's work but I'm not pretty sure about this It was short but the story seems without an ending but it has a lot of analysis and nothing else. That's why is very hard to keep reading.

    21. Does anyone actually talk like Dupin? The man is insufferable. Longwinded monologues are out in full force as he speaks about the trivialities of the events leading up to a woman's murder that are remarkable for both their extreme tediousness and impeccable logical consistency. Unfortunately, after a lot of build up the story fizzles out and doesn't really go anywhere. I can't recommend this, but there is running theme in the three Dupin stories (The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Mar [...]

    22. A lot of people who read this story are gonna think its really dry. Its edgar allan poe; he was really into chess and poker, and cryptgrams. He liked thinking games where you have to look at the details and the big picture simultaneously. This story is consistent with those interests. Its very much a study of thought; if you go into a situation with a prejudice, or with preconceived notions, you're only going to pay attention to the evidence that supports your veiwpoint. The rest won't make sens [...]

    23. This was nowhere near as good as Murders In The Rue Morgue. I found it boring, as this time around, the horrific murder descriptions and inventively unexpected conclusions were both sacrificed to an overly-detailed analysis on what kind of clothes the deceased was wearing, and how they would have torn different based on different angles and bullshit like that. I'm not saying the story was bad. I'm just saying that, for more simple-minded readers like myself, the intricate structure and inevitabl [...]

    24. I read it just for its historical value, as Edgar Allan Poe wrote it using a case in the newspapers of a real murder which the police were doing a terrible job of solving, his fictional detective pointing out the errors of the police and showing deductive logic as a means of solving a crime. By his fictionalized account published in a periodical, I was told (both at a 2013 National History Day student project and at the International Spy Museum in D.C.), he showed the police how to do much bette [...]

    25. Приятелят на нашия разказвач, господин френският детектив, отново е във вихъра си.Не ми допадна единствено това, че разказът звучи някак незавършено тъкмо стана интересно xD След тези десет и повече страници пълен разбор на абсолютно всички материали, слагаме скобки и обяс [...]

    26. Too long-winded and sermonising. There is less action and more talk. I especially found their detailed examination of the newspaper articles unnecessary. Dupin talks too much and is a touch above-the-worldly, with none of the likeable habits or traits of Holmes, Miss Marple or Poirot. It is almost as if Dupin is the Australopithecus to the fully evolved analytical detective.

    27. What a great book! But then what can you expect from Edgar Allan Poe. He is a very powerful and wonderful This is a must read.

    28. Described as the sequel to "The Murders of The Rue Morgue" Poe felt that he has solved the mystery of Mary Rogers.Turns out, he was latera suspect himself!
