We will learn not only what makes a great detective story, but also what makes a short story a great work of literature.

Course outline:

Monday, July 25 - Introduction: what makes a good “detective story”? Who was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? Who was G.K. Chesterton? What were they trying to accomplish with their mysteries? Are mystery stories entertainment only, or do they delve deeper into the nature of reality? How have these stories influenced mystery writers from then until now?
