What is the theme of The Man Who Was Poe ?
One of the themes in this work is that of the locked room. The theme is nothing new to detective fiction, poetry, or fairy tales, (ie, Sleeping Beauty, The Rape of the Lock). Here, Avi also includes a historical spin on the genre by weaving in real life events of Poe's life.
