Edgar Alan Po i teorija kratke priče

By Saša Simović

Abstract

The concept of effect elaborated in his poetry, Edgar Allan Poe applied to the short story. In his well-known review of Hawthorne’s Twice-Told Tales (1842), Poe claims that apart from a poem the demands of a genius are best fulfi lled in the short story requiring from a half hour to one or two hours to be read in order to obtain the unity of effect and make it functional. According to Poe, in a well written story, each element has to fit into a previously conceived plan to contribute to the overall effect of the whole. This paper deals with fundamental postulates of Poe’s short story theory.Koncept jedinstva efekta koji je elaborirao u poeziji, Edgar Alan Po primijenio je i na kratku priču. U čuvenoj kritici o Hotornovim Dvaput ispričanim pričama (1842) on tvrdi da, osim pjesme, zahtjeve genija na najbolji način ispunjava kratka priča, za koju je potrebno od pola sata do sat ili dva da se pročita, kako bi jedinstvo efekta bilo ostvareno i učinkovito. Prema Pou, u dobro napisanoj priči svaki element mora se uklapati u već osmišljen plan i na takav način doprinositi sveukupnom efektu priče kao cjeline. Ovaj rad bavi se fundamentalnim postulatima Poove teorije kratke priče
