Trivia

Different real-life murders have been cited as the inspiration for Poe's tale. Among them is the 1830 murder of Joseph White of Salem, Massachusetts. The special prosecutor on the case, Daniel Webster, published his Argument on the Trial as a pamphlet. In the text, he writes that the murderer's guilt will eventually reveal itself and that "the secret which the murderer possesses soon comes to possess him...it overcomes him...He feels it beating at his heart, rising to his throat, and demanding disclosure. He thinks the whole world sees it in his face, reads it in his eyes, and almost hears its workings in the very silence of his thoughts. It has become his master." See more »
