Final Answer


Research Proposal:

For my research paper, I wanted to focus on the achievements of two great figures from the vast fields
that are encompassed in the term “humanities”. Particularly, I wanted to focus on the work of a past
author and a contemporary author who engages in the same field: Edgar Allen Poe, the original king of
horror, and Stephen King, the contemporary representative of the genre. Both Poe and King explore art
through writing; Poe, focusing on short stories, poems and essays and King, a prolific novelist. Their
incursion into the same genre -- of which Poe was a pioneer -- has made them frequent targets for
comparisons. Usually, these comparisons come in an attempt to proclaim the better horror writer.
