Prof. McDuffie presents paper
Bradley McDuffie, Lecturer of English, presented a paper at the American Literature Association. This year's conference theme was "Mysterious America: Crime Fiction in American Culture."
Prof. McDuffie's paper was entitled: “'Poet of the Underworld': The Code of Jean-Pierre Melville."
It focused on some of the major works from the French film-auteur' including, L'armee des Ombres (Army of Shadows), Bob Le Flambleur (Bob the Gambler), Le Cercle Rouge (The Red Circle), and Le Deuxieme Souffle (The Second Breath). The paper used Allan Guthrie's quote about the distinction between noir and hard-boiled fiction as a guide for navigating Melville's code. To paraphrase Guthrie, 'the crucifixion is noir, the resurrection is hard-boiled.'
