<<Any definition of noir has to go back to the Greek myths.>>


For reasons of rhetoric. Seriously, the Greeks created a pretty thorough catalogue of human tragedy, as well as the aesthetic devices to show that tragedy on stage. A noir novelist is doing the same thing with the same themes. The language and the circumstances are different, but the essence is the same.

Best, and I still don't understand how I came to be conflated with Miker in this discussion. Time to trim the quoted text, folks. Aristotle or Three Gun Terry says so.
