A remarkable number of writers have been spies, and the spy novel has developed into a genre of its own; spying seems to hold a particular fascination for writers & readers alike. Over a hundred years after Conrad published The Secret Agent, its themes of anarchism, espionage & terrorism seem as relevant as ever.
We shall study:
- The Secret Agent (1907) by Joseph Conrad.
- The Confidential Agent (1939) by Graham Greene
- The Mask of Dimitrios (1939) by Eric Ambler
