We consider some classics of the spy fiction genre, including Conrad’s The Secret Agent and le Carré’s The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. We will identify recurring trends and techniques across the 20th century and beyond, analyse the works in their historical and contemporary contexts, and consider their broader reflections on society.
