Abstract

 

The primary purpose of this paper is to analyse how something as personal and forbidden (for a spy) as conscience is sometimes able to influence the actions of hard-boiled agents in the cold world of spy trade. In particular, how the actions and reactions of le Carré’s protagonist Alec Leamas pave the way for questions about integrity in spies or lack thereof. All this to understand what transpires in a spy’s head in situations where morality comes into play. Also taken into consideration will be the clinical explanations of what could affect a spy’s behaviour. Relevant statements made by le Carré critics will form the basis for my questioning and reasoning.
