And Always a Detective: Chapters on the History of.


Hercule Poirot ( UK : / ˈ ɛər k juː l ˈ p w ɑː r oʊ / , US : / h ɜːr ˈ k juː l p w ɑː ˈ r oʊ / ; [2] French:  [ɛʁkyl pwaʁo] ) is a fictional Belgian detective, created by Agatha Christie . Poirot is one of Christie's most famous and long-lived characters, appearing in 33 novels , one play ( Black Coffee ), and more than 50 short stories published between 1920 and 1975.

Poirot has been portrayed on radio, in film and on television by various actors, including Austin Trevor , John Moffatt , Albert Finney , Sir Peter Ustinov , Sir Ian Holm , Tony Randall , Alfred Molina , Orson Welles , David Suchet and Sir Kenneth Branagh .

Poirot's name was derived from two other fictional detectives of the time: Marie Belloc Lowndes ' Hercule Popeau and Frank Howel Evans' Monsieur Poiret, a retired Belgian police officer living in London. [3]

A more obvious influence on the early Poirot stories is that of Arthur Conan Doyle . In An Autobiography , Christie states, "I was still writing in the Sherlock Holmes tradition – eccentric detective, stooge assistant, with a Lestrade -type Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Japp". [4] For his part, Conan Doyle acknowledged basing his detective stories on the model of Edgar Allan Poe 's C. Auguste Dupin and his anonymous narrator, and basing his character Sherlock Holmes on Joseph Bell , who in his use of " ratiocination " prefigured Poirot's reliance on his "little grey cells".

Poirot also bears a striking resemblance to A. E. W. Mason 's fictional detective, Inspector Hanaud of the French Sûreté , who first appeared in the 1910 novel At the Villa Rose and predates the first Poirot novel by ten years.

Poirot first appeared in The Mysterious Affair at Styles (published in 1920) and exited in Curtain (published in 1975). Following the latter, Poirot was the only fictional character to receive an obituary on the front page of The New York Times . [7] [8]

Private detective Kinsey Millhone was created by American author Sue Grafton. She appears in the alphabet series: “A Is for Alibi”, “B Is for Burglar” etc. She lives in an apartment in Santa Teresa, California. This fictional town based on Santa Barbara was invented by another writer, Ross MacDonald. Kinsey is a bachelorette who runs a lot to stay in shape, and has an affair from time to time. I like these novels because they are entertaining and have a fast pace and strong plot. There’s always a certain amount of action involved too. There hasn’t been a film or TV adaption of these stories yet – maybe an idea for the future.

Honorable mention: Auguste Dupin (E. A. Poe), Father Brown (G. K. Chesterton), Adam Dalgliesh (P. D. James), Chief Inspector Wexford (Ruth Rendell), Chief Inspector Barnaby (Caroline Graham).

Investigator is a more of a generic term while detective shows some rank in the police force in some countries. For a normal police officer to become a detective, he or she has to go through a lot of tests.

Detectives are used to solve criminal matters, while investigators are employed to solve cases of missing person and adultery though, there are no rules regarding this.

While anyone who enters law enforcement can be known as an investigator, you have to pass examinations, gain field experience and have theoretical knowledge to become a detective.
