Classic Mysteries of the 1930s and 1940s

« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Explore a period that produced some of the best mystery and crime novels through this introduction to the noir genre. Most mystery fans know of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, but many other writers contributed to the noir period. Cornell Woolrich, little known today, was a master of suspense who wrote Rear Window and more than 20 mystery and suspense novels, nearly all of which were made into movies. Noir was a break from the slow-moving British mysteries of the period; murders didn't happen off stage. The stories were gritty harbingers of today's crime fiction and movies.
