Course description

Spies and Thrillers:

We study four novels from the last sixty years:the Thirty Nine Steps by John Buchan, Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene; The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John le Carré and Restless by Wiilam Boyd. We aim to discover what is special about this very popular genre. Are there elements that must be included? How formulaic are the books? Do they relate to 'real life' as we experience it? Are we all in some way also spies? The selected books have all been acclaimed for their literary quality but do they deserve the praise? In class discussion we will try to answer these questions and through our discussions will hope to arrive at literary truths.
