The man of the crowd

I read beautiful story “the man of the crowd” written by Edgar Allan Poe. It is a nice story that explicitly explains the dilemma of the modern man who is constantly running away from himself. The man in the story is on an unceasing run; he never lets himself to be alone and likes to remain in crowded places so that he can’t hear the voices of his guilt or regrets. Like all, Poe's stories, the motive behind all this is unknown to the reader but reader is free to let his imagination work.
