Written only shortly before his death, Eureka is considered by many to be Poe’s masterpiece and the key to unlocking his entire writings. Its significance, in both literary and scientific worlds, cannot be underestimated. Turning his immense intellect and remarkable artistic flair to the most challenging concepts of all—that of the creation of the world, its continued existence, and its ultimate end—Poe has created a truly extraordinary work. In his strange blend of poetry and scientific treaty, fact and frenzied speculation, he displays amazing foresight, anticipating some of the key scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
