Abstract

In The Frame
'Violence fascinates us because it is deemed unacceptable by society and therefore the people who commit violence are breaking our self- imposed rules, rules that underpin the very notion of civilisation. Rule breakers make us curious: Why don't they want to be like us?Various analytic and discursive theoretical texts that address the formal structuring and underpinning themes of crime fiction have also informed my determination of the genre as a fertile subject for visual interpretation. These examinations categorise and notify the literary product as both a fictional container for the descriptive narration of assorted acts of malfeasance and murder and their consequences, and a point-the-way mirror to the real-time dynamics contemporary to its telling.
