The man of the Crowd is the title of a very disturbing tale by Edgar Poe. In it there is a man, a strange man, an old man, who walks and walks non-stop. And there is another man who, paying attention to the man who walks, decides to follow him. One, the first man, walks among the crowd of the city of London, during the day, during the afternoon, during the night. He walks and walks non-stop. And he carries with him both a diamond and a dagger.
Who is this man? What is the subject which Poe was trying to explain to us in this tale?
Maybe all of us are the Man of the Crowd.
Perhaps the film "Forrest Gump" might explain.
