Overview of A Common Spring: Crime Novel and Classic

Nadya Aisenberg discusses the potentialities of the crime novel, its implications, principles, and scope, and its analogy ot myth and the fairy tale.

Her discussion of Dickens, Conrad, and Green indicate that each borrowed many important ingredients from the formulaic novel.
