Gladys Mitchell's Mrs Bradley

detection, difference, and The Rising of the Moon (1945)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A sharp sense of parody leavens the realist modes of Gladys Mitchel (1901-83), producing novels that both abide by and subvert the rules of Golden Age detection. The Rising of the Moon (1945) is her finest novel, one that uses formal "play" to register questions of human desire and agency.
