Abstract
The 1920s and ’30s in Great Britain saw the creation of the middlebrow, the emergence of popular psychology, and the Golden Age of Mystery Fiction. These three phenomena come together in the works of Agatha Christie. Christie’s use of psychology in her novels helped place mystery fiction in the newly created middlebrow category by reflecting middle class interests and concerns in interwar Britain.
