Signs Taken for Wonders: On the … – Google Book Search

Franco Moretti solves half the problem. He decodes the detective novel significantly.

But his entire book does NOT use the word racism, slavery or genocide even once. 19th century – the era of genocide, racism, bigotry, slavery, detective books reflected that state of society. But Moretti does use those words at all – even once in his book. And that is the important half.
