Her name, as well as that of Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple, has become a part of our cultural imagination through the novels as well as numerous film and television adaptations. This course examines Christie’s life, the form of the classic detective novel, the breadth of themes within her work, and her creation of a female detective.
