QUESTION 1) We have spent a great deal of time discussing heroic figures in this course, but a heroic spy or detective often presupposes a nemesis or evil mastermind with whom the protagonist must match wits and/or muscle.
Discuss the evolution of the villain figure, giving examples from at least one writer of detective stories and two writers of spy stories. In your answer, you may wish to focus upon some of the following characters: Moriarty; Jonathan Small; Nick Buckley; Kasper Gutman (the “Fat Man”); Eddie Mars; Joe Brody; Albie; Dimitrios; Petersen; Red Grant; Le Chiffre; Mundt.
If in a previous assignment of the semester you wrote an essay about villains, please do not discuss the same characters now (there are plenty of other ones anyway!). Alternatively, you can construct a different argument about the characters you previously discussed. After all it might be that now, at the end of the semester, you have developed a different perspective, and we are certainly curious to learn about it.
QUESTION 2) Love and friendship. Discuss the role of these important aspects of the human experience in at least 1 detective story and 2 spy stories from the selection we read in this class.
(a little clarification for question#2: you can analyze 2 novels/short stories OR 1 novel/short storis AND a movie, BUT NOT 2 MOVIES.
