Time to revisit the novels of Josephine Tey! You will gain from this course an overview of her life and works and come to appreciate the variety of her narrative techniques in The Man in the Queue, Miss Pym Disposes and The Franchise Affair. Lastly, we will follow Inspector Grant's investigation into the case of Richard III in The Daughter of Time, first published in 1951 but still topical today.

Students should ensure they have read the novels mentioned in the below sessions before attending this course.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
