  • Ruth Rendell and Barbara Vine – Family Matters
    • Authors: Peters F.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article traces themes and preoccupations that work across Ruth Rendell’s work, writing both as Rendell and also as Barbara Vine. It investigates the ways in which the use of a pseudonym allows her to delve deeper into areas that she also explores as Rendell – the dysfunctional family and heredity, both in relation to physical disease and the fruitless search for origins, the latter discussed by her through the lens of Freudian psychoanalysis.

  • Realistic Man, Fantasy Policeman: The Longevity of Ruth Rendell’s
           Reginald Wexford
    • Authors: Schnabel J.
      Abstract: Ruth Rendell first introduced Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford in From Doon with Death in 1964; we last see him forty-nine years later in No Man’s Nightingale (2013). Rendell develops the protagonist in her detective series, which includes twenty-four novels and five short stories, by adapting the conventions and tropes of the detective and police procedural genres set forth by her predecessors, such as Georges Simenon, Dorothy Sayers, and Ed McBain. However, while her detectives operate within the framework of the fictional Kingsmarkham police department, Rendell does not stifle Wexford with mundane bureaucratic constraints. Instead, she focuses on presenting a realistic man with idiosyncrasies, shortcomings, and fears, as well as a character who adapts to the changing social and cultural environment alongside the reading public. Rendell has called Wexford “a fantasy policeman in a fantasy world,” using investigative methods which do not always adhere to standard police procedures (Salwak 87). As a result, forensic details are also largely missing from her narratives, which often lack in-depth descriptions of autopsies, lab processes, and coroner’s reports found in other contemporary crime novels and popular television programs. She said, “The wonder is that thousands of readers (including policemen!) seem to like it this way” (87). Thousands is an understatement; Rendell’s worldwide sales figures are currently estimated at 20 million (Penguin UK), a testament to her creations’ longevity and popularity with readers even after her death in 2015.

  • Ruth Rendell Special Issue: Introduction
    • Authors: Heholt R; Peters F, Wisker G.
      Abstract: On 2 May 2015, one of Britain’s best-loved authors Ruth Rendell died. Rendell has very often been described (alongside P. D. James) as the “Queen of Crime,” and despite her dislike of the term, it has been applied to Rendell countless times.11 Massively popular and with worldwide sales of approximately 20 million (amazon.com), Rendell routinely topped the bestseller lists. Yet despite the fact that Rendell is a “queen of crime” and a worldwide bestselling author, the 2010 Wiley Blackwell Companion to Crime Fiction does not mention her anywhere in its entire 573 pages, and this is not an unusual state of affairs. Charles Rzepka, in the otherwise excellent book Detective Fiction, affords Rendell one slight mention (228), whereas Peter Messent in The Crime Fiction Handbook names her just twice in lists that include other crime writers (34, 62). The mainstream media and the reading public have valued Rendell for decades, but academic critics do not seem to respect her in the same way, and she is often passed over in the academic discussion of crime fiction. The guest editors of this special issue believe that Ruth Rendell is one of the most important contemporary women writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and this special issue both celebrates and critically responds to her work.

When I interviewed her a few years ago for the Independent on Sunday, she told me “I think they married because they were totally innocent, especially my father,” elaborating:

  • “Watch the Words Fall onto Paper in a Tangled Code”: The Functions of
           Writing and Reading in Three Novels by Ruth Rendell
    • Authors: Miller J.
      Abstract: AbstractIt is axiomatic that crime fiction is not considered “literary” and is excluded from prestigious and mainstream literary prizes. Although Ruth Rendell’s later “standalone” and Barbara Vine novels have often been successful in gaining specific crime fiction awards, her Chief Detective Inspector Wexford series have been passed over in this regard, and it was only with the beginning of the Vine publications that her work was considered to take a literary turn. In response to this misapprehension, her early writing has received comparatively little attention, even within the still limited range of Rendell scholarship. This should be surprising as, beginning with the first Wexford, From Doon with Death in 1964, her work, whether writing as Rendell or Vine, is without exception comprised of layers of narrative complexity, literary references, and textual mosaics. This article, through its analysis of Rendell’s first three novels, From Doon with Death, To Fear a Painted Devil, and Vanity Dies Hard, will explore the centrality of texts and textuality within her work, from the minutiae and range of texts that form her mosaic of clues, to the centrality of the acts of reading and writing, but most importantly to the revelation of the extent that the novels are steeped in literary knowledge and understanding, and the extent to which Rendell’s readers should equal that knowledge and understanding to fully engage with the narrative process.

  • Houses of Death: Ruth Rendell’s Domestic Gothic and the Emptying Out
           of Romance
    • Authors: Wisker G.
      Abstract: AbstractA blackened, burned dress hangs limply in an upstairs wardrobe in a dusty, deserted house in the Fens in Ruth Rendell’s The Brimstone Wedding (1996). This dress, like the airless, loveless, and love-lost houses in both The Brimstone Wedding and The Secret House of Death (1968) serves as a reminder of false romantic promises, the emptying out of desire into the mundane, the dangers and betrayals both of passion and of the everyday domestic. This is Rendell’s domestic Gothic at its best. In both Rendell and her alias Barbara Vine’s more psychological thrillers, the twin comforts of romance and a safe home and family give way to disturbance, discomfort, disease, and disruption. Romance is treacherous and betrayed. However passionate, stolen, turbulent, and filled with promise, it slips away at a single deceptive act or through the repetitive, mundane everyday. Its worst outcomes are cruelty following the end of love or the equally destructive, mind-numbingly banal winding down into lovelessness. Clandestine love nests are cleared out and shuttered up; suburban family life is devalued. Each is prone to absences, deceit, and death. Much of Rendell’s domestic Gothic has echoes of Daphne du Maurier’s earlier influential genre-shifting romantic crime Gothic Rebecca (1938), and this novel’s haunting of our reading of Rendell’s texts underpins the discussion of The Brimstone Wedding and The Secret House of Death. Both use strategies of women’s crime entwined with romantic domestic Gothic to undermine thoroughly investment in romantic love, domestic bliss, and the security of the family home.

  • Ambivalent Ghosts: The Manifestation of the Supernatural in Ruth
           Rendell’s Fiction
    • Authors: Heholt R.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article examines the supernatural in Ruth Rendell’s fiction. Rendell was fascinated by the supernatural and returned to it throughout her writing career. The essay begins by looking at the manifestation of ghosts as a symptom of domestic entrapment. These ghosts are an extension of women’s curtailed and claustrophobic lives. It then explores the depiction of mediums and soothsayers, which, although allowing more agency for women, still leaves unresolved slippages between the real and the not real. The article ends by looking at Rendell’s haunted men, arguing that there is a relatively conventional expansion of the imagination for men who become aware of the possibility of the supernatural. The article argues that the gender divide apparent in Rendell’s depiction of ghost seeing and occult practices provides the critique of conventional gender roles and expectations that is so much a part of all her work. However, the role the supernatural plays in her fiction goes further and expresses an apparent doubt that Rendell feels about the actual materiality of ghosts and the efficacy of occult practices. Rendell’s treatment of the supernatural is insistently ambivalent. This essay argues that for someone who states so clearly, “I don’t, of course, believe in ghosts” (“Ruth Rendell reads”), Rendell surprisingly refuses to dismiss them.

  • Domestic Fracturing in Ruth Rendell’s Early Stand-Alone Novels
    • Authors: Kungl CT.
      Abstract: AbstractThis essay examines Ruth Rendell’s early stand-alone fiction: Vanity Dies Hard (1965) and The Secret House of Death (1968), focusing on the ways Rendell complicates the detective fiction plotline when she transfers the “main character” status onto her female protagonists. The fact that they are ineffectual as detectives is made more powerful by setting: Rendell places these criminal acts in the home, which in earlier female detective fiction is presented as a source of power for women, but which in Rendell’s early fiction is a site of unrest. Using insights from feminist geographers of space, who examine the interplay of gender and physical environment, illuminates how the characters’ situations undermine the supposed safety of the domestic sphere. In questioning the country home and the suburban household as seats of domesticity and familial harmony, Rendell highlights the lingering difficulties women have of conceiving of themselves outside of male-created paradigms of femininity. She draws upon not just early women’s detective fiction but gothic and sensation fiction, too, each of which emphasizes the home and women’s roles in either the protection of or subversion of that traditional female sphere. In these early stand-alone novels, Rendell destabilizes the ways in which both the home and the women in it are constructed. Though these novels have received scant critical attention, they show that from the outset, Rendell’s concern has not necessarily been for the detective story as much as it has been for the psychological nuances of her female characters.
