Our focus for Mosley is Redefining the Genre. A literary genre is a category of literary composition. Genres may be determined by literary technique, tone, content, or even (as in the case of fiction) length. The distinctions between genres and categories are flexible and loosely defined, often with subgroups.
The most general genres in literature are epic, tragedy, comedy, and creative nonfiction. Obviously, in this course we’ve been asked to explore the mystery genre. If it helps, start thinking about things that you know: how did Game of Thrones change the fantasy TV genre? How did Richard Pryor change the stand-up comedy genre? You now have the distinct benefit of a robust exploration of the mystery literature genre, so your voice and interpretations have a solid foundation. For example, it will help to look back to Doyle (as one of the forefathers of this genre) and consider how Mosley both pays homage to the roots of the genre while departing from them. To what extent has he maintained some of the same literary features? Wherein, and for what purposes, is he now “paddling his own canoe?” A good place to start, in terms of deciphering the departure, is within the realm of social commentary. Consider how Mosley incorporates content that says something meaningful about people, places, times, etc. For this final paper, I am not going to dictate how your response is organized; instead, I’d like to set you free with this, and invite any number of compositional approaches (in terms of how you organize paragraphs, etc.). Your final paper (50 points) is due on or before May 6.
