"Have their been any noir or HB works directly inspired by, or retelling, stories from the Bible? There must be some obvious ones, but off the top of my head I can't think of any. For ancient literature all I can think of is Willeford's COCKFIGHTER, which draws on on THE ODYSSEY."

Or Arthurian legend? Given all of the references to knights (Mallory, Spenser, etc.), you'd think someone would update a knight's tale . . . or a miller's tale, or some other Canterbury Tale.
