"The Man of the Crowd" is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe about a nameless narrator following a man through a crowded London.

"I am, that is to say I was, a great man, but I am neither the author of Junius nor the man in the mask, for my name, I believe, is Robert Jones, and I was born somewhere in the city of Fum-Fudge." --"Lionizing" by E. A. Poe
