The Kennel Murder Case
Biografía del Autor
<p>Willard Huntington Wright (1888?1939) was a multifaceted American figure: a critic, writer, and editor, who carved his niche in the world of detective fiction under the pseudonym S.S. Van Dine. Wright is perhaps best known for creating the fictional detective Philo Vance, a character who became a staple within the Golden Age of detective fiction. \'The Kennel Murder Case\' is among the most esteemed of his works, showcasing Wright\'s knack for intricate plotting and intellectual puzzles. This 1933 novel is the sixth in the Philo Vance series, lauded for its complex mystery and the urbane sophistication of its protagonist. Prior to Wright\'s detective era, his broad intellectual pursuits led him to write art criticism, philosophy, and literary essays. Having served as the editor of The Smart Set magazine, Wright championed the modernist movement in art and literature, influencing the cultural landscape of his time. As S.S. Van Dine, Wright is credited with refining the detective genre through intellectual acumen and adherence to fair play, according to the conventions established by Ronald Knox and S.S. Van Dine\'s own \'Twenty Rules for Writing Detective Stories.\' Wright\'s work is significant not only for its literary merits but also for the insight into the social and intellectual fabric of America during the early 20th century.</p>
