An Analysis of the Nail-Biting Thriller' Murder on the Orient Express' Written by Agatha Christie

Ganti Sri Venkata Sai Prerna


Abstract: The novel 'Murder on the Orient Express' by Agatha Christieis an intricate mystery spinning around a bunch of characters cut off from reality where Poirot, the detective, shows not just the intensity of his little grey cells, however his apprehension and empathy for humankind.'Murder on the Orient Express' is a famous book, which has made Agatha Christie a renowned writer. It is a nail-biting tale that enthralls readers and keeps them engrossed in this mystery novel. This research paper analyzes the social, legal, and cultural aspects of this novel, such as the unusual manner in which the jury system is portrayed. It also briefs about the inadequacy of law as the guilty were not accorded the proper punishment for the crime he committed. The question about the morality of murder, that is, is it morally acceptable to take a person's life to avenge the loss of a loved one and not abiding by the laws, is answered through this research. This paper also shows how Agatha breaks cultural and linguistic barriers and perfectly blends it with slight humor. The study also talks about racism and stereotyping in the late 90s and the usage of old-fashioned French terms.


Keywords: Murder: the unlawful planned killing of one person by another or a group of people, Detective: an individual, particularly a cop, whose occupation is to investigate and address wrongdoings, Investigation: formal or methodical assessment or examination, Jury: an assembly of individuals (ordinarily twelve in number) pledged to decide in a legal case based on proof submitted to them in court, Justice: just conduct or treatment
