Edgar Allan Poe obviously loved the English language, but do you know that he was interested in secret languages too? This website lets you practice your deciphering skills by solving not only the cryptogram that was the focus of Poe’s short story, “The Gold Bug,” but also other secret messages that can be found in Poe’s writings. Learn how the substitution cipher works and strategies you can use for breaking the code. Read the glossary defining the words used in describing secret language, and encrypt your own message using the interactive secret writing page.
