I have been following the thread closely and, with all due respect to Todd's secular/existential damnation and Bill's suggestion of a specific noir style, I have seen nothing that convinces me that there is something that bars Shakespeare, Conrad, or Dostoyevsky from the club. For now my conclusion is that we are, as Mario suggested, simply and arbitrarily limiting the noir scope to beginning with post-1920s crime fiction. That's fine with me, of course.
