Introduction 1.1 Review of the theme My qualification work is devoted to the creative life and work of great American writer Edgar Allan Poe, the theme of which is “Artistic peculiarities of short stories by Edgar Poe”. This theme is chosen for investigation because of its importance for learning English language. In the process of learning English the learning of the literature of exact country is very important. Alongside with English literature we must know American literature, which developed on the basis of English one. From the history of the English language we know that English penetrated America through British conquering of this land.

Analyzing the above mentioned stories I proved once more Edgar Poe’s skill to tell stories

which thrill readers both with fear and humor. 1.2 National Beginning in American literature and Edgar Poe as one of its beginners The work is also of great practical value.
