* PurpleProse: subverted. Chandler's descriptive writing evokes Purple prose, but his own skill makes it rise above that trope. Attempts to copy or parody his way with descriptive words tend to turn into Purple Prose. * Warrior Poet: Chandler dabbled as a romantic poet before enlisting in WorldWarOne. As noted above under PurpleProse, his hard-boiled detective fiction is essentially prose poetry about violence.

* PatchworkStory[=/=]SelfPlagiarism: Chandler cannibalised previous short stories of his when creating his first two novels, and used elements of them for further novels. The level of cannibalisation varied, from whole plots to select passages and descriptions. Chandler would usually try to build on what he had previously written.
