The complicated politics of American modernism has been the subject of countless essays and monographs. From the groundbreaking works of Raymond Williams and Frederic Jameson to Alan Filreis’s studies of American modernism in Modernism from Left to Right and Counter-Revolution of the Word, the central contradictions between the radical poetics of American modernists and their sometimes profoundly conservative political views, have been a source of great critical productivity.

Animals in Detective Fiction

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

Since its origins in the mid nineteenth century, detective fiction has been populated by a huge array of beasts. If the genre begins, as is widely supposed (though not without some debate), with Edgar Allen Poe’s ‘Murders in the Rue Morgue’ (1841), then detective fiction’s very first culprit is an animal. Such beastly instances of criminal violence are among the genre’s most recurrent figurings of the non-human. Accordingly, like Poe’s frenzied ourang-outang on the spree in Paris, Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles (1902) identifies a murderous aggression as part-and-parcel of animal nature. Detective fiction accommodates gentler and more law-abiding creatures too, however.
