I believe that all novels ... deal with character, and that it is to express character ^ not to preach doctrines, sing songs, or celebrate the glories of the British Empire, that the form of the novel, so clumsy, verbose, and undramatic, so rich, elastic, and alive, has been evolved. VirginiaWoolf,‘Mr Bennett andMrs Brown’ 1924. What is literature without characters? Pride and Prejudice without the proud Mr Darcy, The Lord of the Rings without the courageous Frodo Baggins, or Nicholas Nickleby without the brutal Wackford Squeers? For the reader, their favourite heroes, clowns, lovers, monsters, villains and supporting characters take on an existence far beyond the mere words on the page. Literary characters are the vessels into which the ideas, aspirations, emotions and neuroses of the author can be poured and to which, through reading, we add our own.They can stand as memorable tokens of human character types, or be used as vehicles for social satire or commentary on the human condition; they can take us, the readers, with them to question our prejudices, reaffirm our beliefs, or simply to be entertained.We can identify with them, aspire to the qualities they embody, or rail against them, as we do with characters in the realworld. Whenwe read, we share in the joy or despair of the author’s players as they act out the scenes of their lives.We love with them, hate with them, and feel their fear and elation as the story unfolds. Who didn’t shed a tear when InspectorMorse solved his last case, rejoicewhen Jane Eyre said of Rochester, ‘Reader, I married him’, or sleep a little more soundly when Count Dracula finally met his end? Like a lepidopterist, this book pins down these many colourful creations in one accessible collection. In addition it offers eight essays from noted experts on various aspects of the character in literature, and adds at the end a comprehensive index of authors, including brief biographical information on these characters behind the characters.

"This book highlights detection's malleability by analyzing the works of particular groups of authors from specific time periods written in response to other texts. Specifically, it traces the roles that gender, race and empire have played in American detective fiction from Edgar Allan Poe's works through the myriad variations upon them published before 1920 to hard-boiled fiction"--
