meaning of 'the gold bug' : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Hi, i just real 'the gold bug' and i was wondering what the whole meaning of the story is? is it just about a group of me who found treasaure and then the man 'legrande' told jupitor and the narrator how he came to figure out where the treasure was? also, is Ligea about a mans love for this woman? and in 'Loss of breath', i need a short summary of the story as i found it a little confusing. thanks fr you help! Lauren

you obviously know how to use the internet, and I suggest that you use your knowledge to look on the hundreds of sites about Poe and his works. Many students want the same question - so it will be answered in a site. Oh, and learn how to spell, you illiterate philist

How about you try using the word philist in the right context Mr. Moore
