about

The Case of Sherlock Holmes uncovers what is untold, partly told, wrongly told, or deliberately concealed in Arthur Conan Doyle''s Sherlock Holmes saga. This engaging study uses a scholarly approach, combining close reading with historicism, to read the stories afresh, sceptically probing Dr Watson''s narratives and Holmes''s often barely credible solutions. Drawing on Victorian and Edwardian history, Conan Doyle''s life and works, and Doyle''s literary sources, the book offers new insights into the Holmes stories and reveals what they say about money, class, family, sex, race, war, and secrecy.
Andrew Glazzard is a senior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute.
