The assistant character represented the reader and made him aware of the distance between himself and the impressions of the author, thus making sure that the reader could not succumb to careless escapism. Ritter thought that the cultural field was excessively divided. On the one hand, there were intellectual writers who turned their backs on the general public, and on the other, there were mass-production factories that dominated the market with imported cultural goods.
In the present age, one prefers light literature. And if the public wants such a genre, than we should provide it. But preferably not in the form of Nick Carter, Lord Lister and the likes, whose adventures often follow the same recipe. He wanted to provide what the public wanted, but did not want to go too low.

This meant that he had similar interests to critics like Bartling and Ritter, who were looking for a new kind of national literature and new authors who would step up as leading figures to refine, nationalize and reform popular genres. Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, the pulp series maintained their low cultural status and were considered by many critics to be morally dangerous.
Although the content of the Lord Lister series was somewhat refined when the Dutch author Felix Hageman continued the series under a new publisher, the status of this particular series did not really change. The main objection—making criminality attractive—lost little of its force, for Lord Lister remained a rather ambivalent character who continued to indulge in criminal activities.
Their price and material form distinguished them from these series. In addition to this, the specific textual content of the novels played an important role in the image of this type of detective fiction. An issue of Lord Lister was only 32 pages long, which offered little space for extensive reflection or explanation. Novels, however, had more than enough space for this, and Ivans made full use of it. This meant that even where legal rules were challenged, for instance when Geoffrey Gill perfoms an act that is, strictly speaking, illegal at the end of The Man from France which could hypothetically lead to complaints similar to those directed at the Lord Lister series , Ivans could use the narrative scope of his novel to counter this with a discourse that defended moral and societal norms.
Apparently, the public could not get enough of these stories centred around London, gentlemen-thieves, aristocrats and private detectives. Ivans, however, explicitly added Dutch elements to his British-based detective fiction. This not only led to the greater success of the G. This article has shown how two kinds of detective fiction were creatively adapted and transformed by writers such as Hageman and Ivans and differently evaluated by several critics who mostly approached reading and literature as a social praxis.
In a way, the domestic detective novel had to do exactly the same in a cultural market in danger of being overwhelmed by imported popular fiction.

Currently, he is finishing his dissertation on the Dutch radio critic, journalist and writer Dr. Plan International pulp fiction: the Lord Lister series. The addition of Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali he won the Best Supporting Actor gong for Moonlight in in the lead role also raised expectations. He's also fresh from bagging a Globe for his Supporting Role in Green Book and looks set to earn himself at least another Oscar nod for the same. Ali and Stephen Dorff play two detectives haunted by the case of a pair of kidnapped children in the third season and Ali's performance in the first episode, as a retired detective suffering from Alzheimer's who is asked to remember the details of a homicide case in the 80s, has been singled out for praise.
However, reviews overall are mixed, varying from the quietly enthusiastic, to the downright terrible. Indiewire gives it a thumbs up overall, praising Jeremy Saulnier's direction in particular, but calling it out on plundering the first season's structure; "If you felt the premiere was a little familiar or just a little slow , Ali should be enough for even the most skeptical to hold on for another ride.
Den of Geek says the series is back "a little humbler and a little calmer thanks in large part to the grounding presence of Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali , but still plenty high on its own supply. In other words: True Detective is once again a Mood. Specialization is for insects.
