Poe has influenced numerous authors. His theories on “pure poetry” and elementary components of a short story
inspired authors across the globe. Amongst those authors inspired are Jules Verne,
Charles Baudelaire, Paul Valéry, and Stéphane Mallarmé. Poe
is also believed to have influenced Junichiro Tanizaki’s early stories and Kobo Abe's novels. Influences are also found (and often more clearly displayed) in the development of the19th century detective
novels of. J.L. Borges, and R.L. Stevenson. They draw their inspiration from
Poe’s own detective stories such as the Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Purloined Letter.
