Review of “The Business Man” (1840)


Edgar Allan Poe (writer).

Read in 2022.

A man gifted with a strong sense of order and method by a bump on the head progresses through a series of eight occupations.

The best of Poe’s paradoxical juxtapositions of dignified narration with undignified contents.
