Detective fiction often refers to earlier literature including Shakespeare. From Christie to Sayers, McDermid to Atkinson, there are significant borrowings from dark Jacobean tragedies such as The Duchess of Malfi, ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore and The Revenger’s Tragedy.

This talk explores how such allusions add to the richness of the crime genre.

This talk is part of Off the Shelf's Crime Day. Buy all 4 Crime Day Tickets for £20/£16 - please see the Off the Shelf website for full details.
