The Murders in the Rue Morgue Summary

The analytic mind is discussed by an unknown narrator at the start of this narrative of murder and criminal discovery. He portrays the analyst as being driven by both intuition and a moral need to untangle what perplexes his colleagues. He goes on to say that the analyst enjoys mathematical research and the game of checkers, which allows the calculating man to practise the skill of detection—not just of the game’s movements, but also of his opponent’s behaviour. However, the narrator contends that analysis involves more than just inventiveness. He claims that whereas the inventive guy may be analytic at times, the calculating man is always imaginative.

The narrator then goes on to relate how he met a guy named C. Auguste Dupin. Both guys were looking for the same book at an inconspicuous library on Paris’s Rue Montmartre when they started talking. They became fast friends and decided to split the cost of a place to live. The narrator then tells us an incident of Dupin’s analytical abilities: one night, while strolling together, Dupin mentions an actor that the narrator is thinking about. The narrator is astonished, so he asks Dupin to explain his process, and we see Dupin’s ability to work backwards and notice the significance of seemingly trivial things in order to arrive at brilliant conclusions.

The narrator and Dupin see newspaper articles about a horrific murder in the Rue Morgue shortly after. Eight or ten neighbours of Madame L’Espanaye and her daughter, Mademoiselle Camille, are awakened by shrieks from their fourth-floor flat one night at three a.m. Two voices are heard, followed by quiet. After breaking into the locked flat, the neighbours and two cops discovered absolute chaos and many pieces of evidence of a crime, including a blood-smeared razor, grey human hair, bags of cash, and an unlocked safe. The elderly woman is nowhere to be seen. The visible traces of soot in the room, however, lead them to the chimney, where they discover Mademoiselle Camille’s body. They believe Camille was choked to death and then thrown up into the chimney by the perpetrator. The corpse of Madame L’Espanaye is discovered in a courtyard at the back of the building by neighbours and police as they expand their search. They discover her severely battered and with her throat severed. In fact, her head comes off as the cops transport the body. The 4,000 francs withdrawn from the bank by Madame L’Espanaye are still in the flat, ruling out robbery as a motive for the heinous murder.
