    MS. Found in a Bottle is an 1833 short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. The plot follows an unnamed narrator at sea who finds himself in a series of harrowing circumstances. As he nears his own disastrous death while his ship drives ever southward, he writes an "MS.", or manuscript telling of his adventures which he casts into the sea. Some critics believe the story was meant as a satire of typical sea tales.

  • 爱伦·坡最大的成就是他的短篇小说,他留下的短篇传世佳作题材丰富,并且开创了许多题材。他是优秀短篇小说作家,侦探小说之父;坎坷半世,身后声名远播,想象力丰富且分析缜密;崇尚而且追随美,而美却与恐怖和诡异相伴相生。

  • 媒体书评
  • 他在《怪异故事集》序中称“自己的作品绝大部分都是深思熟虑的苦心经营”。

    洛威尔一向不轻易赞扬别人,却把坡誉为“最有见识、最富哲理的大无畏评论家”。
