Product description

Synopsis

Far from being a conservative writer endorsing women's domestic role, Agatha Christie's books depict women as adventurous, independent women who renegotiate sexual relationships along more equal lines. Women are also allowed the dangerous competency to disrupt society and yet the texts refuse to see them as double deviant because of their femininity. This detailed textual analysis of her oeuvre demonstrates exactly how quietly innovatory Christie was in relation to gender, beginning in 1920 and concluding in the early 1970s.
