Abstract

Two of the principal features of Leonardo Sciascia’s works are the treatment of historical events and the adoption of the techniques of the detective novel. It is the latter characteristic which is the object of this study, for which I shall examine in particular the five novels, Il giorno della civetta, 1961 (The Day Of The Owl), A ciascuno il suo, 1966 (To Each His Own), Il contesto, 1971 (Equal Danger), Todo modo, 1974 (One Way Or Another), and Il cavaliere e la morte, 1988 (The Knight and Death), and the short story, Sciascia’s final ‘giallo’ (detective story), Una storia semplice, 1989 (A Straightforward Tale).
