Summary
"Among the most popular of literary forms, crime fiction has played a central role in the development of national literatures for than a century. Crime and Detective Fiction examines practices of crime writing in American literature and in regions as far and wide as China, Japan, and Scandinavia. This inclusivity results in a diversity of perspectives, in terms of culture, as well as the significance of point of view in telling the tale of a crime. These readings will challenge perspectives on what constitutes good and evil, and lead readers to reexamine assumptions about community, individual rights, and the structure and purpose of the law itself. Edited by Rebecca Martin, Professor of English at Pace University, this collection, part of the Critical Insights series, examines the richness of the field of crime writing and the many ways in which crime, its depiction, and its investigation cross narrative, national, and other boundaries. Readers will appreciate familiar authors in the genre, such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Raymond Chandler, as well as important new additions, most prominently represented by Steig Larrson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This volume will explore the reasons for crime writing's popularity and persistence offered by scholars, critics, and readers in the last two or three hundred years, and challenge long-standing assumptions as to the literary significance of crime and detective fiction."--Publisher's website
