Tom Stoppard's The Real Inspector Hound

  • RRP $19.50

In this book, Tom Stoppard’s The Real Inspector Hound is analysed according to how its composer uses and subverts the conventions and codes of the crime fiction genre for his own fresh purpose. In particular, the structure of the play is considered in terms of Tzvetan Todorov’s theory on the dual structure of Crime Fiction stories.

It focuses on how The Real Inspector Hound fits into the evolution of the Crime Fiction genre. Historical background to the genre is provided and readers are introduced to genre theory.

The distinguishing features of The Real Inspector Hound are shown to be closely linked with the composer’s social purpose, and the ideas and values drawn from the specific cultural and historical contexts in which the text has been produced.

A list for further reading is added.
