The stories we will read in this class are woven of mysteries and enigmas. They want very much to answer questions of life and death (what went wrong? who done it? why?), but often pose more questions than they answer. Some of our questions, then: What makes a detective? What does she or he want? What does it mean to solve a problem? How do we know when it’s completely solved? We will explore these questions, working under the hypothesis that asking questions is as important as answering them. Readings will be drawn across genres, time, and cultures, from ancient Greece to the present in New York and Martinique.
