AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Author and architect Derham Groves examines the 'architectural' dimension of the work of several crime fiction writers, focusing primarily on British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but also including Australian authors Marshall Browne, Peter Corris, Michael Jorgensen, Mary-Rose MacColl, Barry Maitland, Peter Temple, and Arthur Upfield. Groves discusses how these authors create a dramatic or suspenseful 'atmosphere' through their vivid and detailed descriptions of the scene of the crime in particular, and the built environment in general. In the case of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Conan Doyle, Groves also identifies some of the actual places that inspired the fictitious places.' Source: (Sighted 03/05/2012)
