Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).
2001 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]
This study wishes to present a slear and readable introduction to detective fiction, to illustrate the genre’s historical background and development and to point out a few of its most representative authors and stories. Consumers of detective stories can be found in all ages and social classes and the result of this study will also illustrate that there are certain social and psychological reasons for the genre’s remarkable popularity. People reading detective stories seek entertainment, intellectual stimulation and even a possibility to escape from reality. Finally the essay will examine how the readers are directly involved in the process of creating detective fiction since their demands in combination with the strong traditions the genre is based upon clearly restrict the writer’s possibilities.
