This course would consider a number of texts from the Golden Age of Crime fiction. This inter-war period of the 20th century saw a rise in popularity of crime fiction and brought us classic sleuths such as Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Albert Campion, Lord Peter Wimsey and others. What is the enduring appeal of crime fiction from this period, what makes a ‘classic’ Golden Age crime fiction text and what can we learn about the period by reading these novels?
