Noir Readings

The readings have several things in common. Most of them are from an earlier time, deal with murder, are located in relatively remote places, and deal with morality. I would describe the writing styles as informal language with a dark, ominous tone. A crime theme stands out, the readings talk about many deaths and murders. Most deaths being described as violent or gruesome. Death seems to be the main focus of the stories, or the ultimate outcome.
