Deadlier Than the Male, Part III: Margery Allingham & Josephine Tey *NEW!*

The most famous female detective fiction authors of the so-called Golden Age of the 1930’s and 40’s are Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Ngaio Marsh. There are two others, however, who share the title of Queens of Crime for this era, Margery Allingham and Josephine Tey. In this class, explore the life, writing careers, and unique styles of detective fiction by these two women. We will use one of Allingham’s novels, The Death of a Ghost, and two of Tey’s, The Franchise Affair and The Daughter of Time, to examine how each author has built upon the classic formulas of the Golden Age of detective fiction and yet has developed her own distinct approaches to an evolving genre. Instructor: Jean Sonntag
