The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (1894)

  • Michael J. Crowe


Crowe provides an analysis centered on the idea of a Gestalt shift of the twelve Holmes stories anthologized in Memoirs. Included are some of the very best Holmes stories such as “The Adventure of Silver Blaze,” “The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual,” “The Adventure of the Naval Treaty,” and “The Final Problem.”
