Agatha Christie and Modern Identity

Lit, Journalism, Perf Arts

Miss Marple and the Problem of Modern Identity: This is a story in which several characters are not — or may not be — who they say they are.  Agatha Christie’s character and amateur detective, Miss Marple, explains why the problem of identity is a particularly significant one for them, situated in their particular time and place. Alan Jacobs uses this Miss Marple mystery story to assess the conditions of Facebook, state-defined identity, and other conundrums of the modern self.
