Description: Detective or mystery fiction is undoubtedly one of the most popular genre of fiction today. But what is its origin? Why did it come into being in the Victorian era? What is the relationship between actual crime and its representation in literature? How did the Victorian obsessions with violence, lower classes, gender and social disarray impact the narrative convention of crime fiction as we know it today? In this course we will try to answer these questions by looking at a representative selection of Victorian crime novels and tracing the connection between mystery fiction and social history.

 

Requirements: two short papers, a midterm, and a final take-home exam.
