The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1892)

  • Michael J. Crowe


Crowe provides an analysis centered on the idea of a Gestalt shift of the twelve Holmes stories anthologized in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Included are some of the very best Holmes stories such as “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Red-Headed League,” “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” and “The Man with the Twisted Lip.” Also included is an important statement by Professor Martin Willis.
