From the standpoint of social history, it can serve as another piece of evidence illustrating what critics Yoshimi Shun’ya and Harry D. 40 Another more formalist explanation would be that Hammett and Ranpo, both students of the formulas and techniques of detective ﬁction, arrived at the same conclusion via diﬀerent paths. 41 In both cases, all parties were given credit for their achievements. Perhaps the case of Ranpo and Christie calls for a new way of looking at various formalist literatures and crosscultural literary inspiration and encourages the willingness to go beyond the existent hierarchy of inﬂuence and de-emphasize originality and priority.
Similarly, as Japanese texts were rarely, if ever, translated into Western languages, it is highly unlikely that Hammett emulated a fellow detective writer in the Far East. If Ranpo’s work had been written even a day after Hammett’s, the similarity between their works would have been explained away by the usual theory of cross-cultural inﬂuence, where Western writers invariably inﬂuence the Eastern or Japanese writers. However, as Injū predates The Maltese Falcon, it preempts this banal (and sometimes misleading) explanation.
