Sample text

The first two incidents take place before the earthquake, and ironically the family in question has migrated to the area only because they were burned out of their old home. The police prove unable to pinpoint the common thread in all three cases and arrest Iwami, although they probably will not be able to convict him. The truth is revealed at the end of the story only when the real culprit, Matsumoto, decides to confide in the narrator that he, the young and able journalist, is in fact the robber who eluded the authorities in the case of the Oriental Jeweler & Co.

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.
