BERNTHAL fluttering butterfly—and partly by her clothes, hairstyle and posture. This character as presented is well off, from the 1930s and domestic; a picture of conventional English womanhood. Such a picture of Christie tallies with that promoted in most scholarship since Robert Barnard’s pioneering critical evaluation, published in 1980. 8 The aim of this chapter is not to discern an alternative, more authentic “Agatha Christie”. Rather, this chapter considers Christie’s authorial identity, something constructed within the context of changing perceptions surrounding women writers in the twentieth century.
87 The bestselling crime writers of the interwar period, from Christie to Sayers and Allingham, were all women. S. Connington, Anthony Berkeley and other male writers. 88 By 1931 H. e. 91 Regardless of the limited contemporary critical perspectives, British crime fiction of the 1920s and 1930s was largely innovated and developed by women. It is unlikely that the genre would have developed along “feminine” lines without Christie’s successful contributions.

(41–42) At the outset of her journey, Anne does not question her “heroine” status, merely her heroic dignity. Despite considering herself a “heroine”, she experiences seasickness like “everybody else”. Anne has become a “heroine” by calling herself one, and here differentiates herself from those “in books”. 110 This textual play need not involve ridicule, but it must involve an awareness of context, encouraging readers to rethink the parodied text.
