Literature, being a creative universal form of expression, addresses spiritual, emotional and social concerns of humanity. It is known that there are reciprocal relations between literature and religion, still the question of how these two disciplines interact with each other invites fresh thought. Looking at the past of English Literature, it is abundantly clear that critics even before Mathew Arnold have referred back to form and content of religious scriptures.

It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression.

Animals in Detective Fiction

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 - 10:05am
Palgrave Studies in Animals and Literature
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.
