Corruption of the City

          ...... Marlowe goes beyond the traditional chivalric readings and can instead be interpreted as a genuine representation of a traumatized veteran in American society. Substituting the horror of the trenches for the corruption of the city. Chandler formed a disillusioned protagonist in an uncaring America.
            Chandler did so with the sophistication necessary to straddle genre fiction and canonical literature.
