First appearing in 1884, "The Purloined Letter" is the third of three stories Poe wrote featuring the great detective, C. Auguste Dupin. In this mystery, Dupin emphasizes the use of deductive reasoning to recover a stolen letter being used for political blackmail. With his detective -- and his stories -- Poe established the conventions used by many modern day mystery writers, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
