Book Excerpt :

Get ready for a journey to the Baskervilles - the hall shrouded in a fog of sinister mystery, and where the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his faithful friend Dr. Watson encounter the most terrifying and deceitful of their opponents. Get ready to look directly into the dark soul of crime and let the Gothic atmosphere of one of the best works of the Victorian era carry you away. Can you feel the night fall? Over the countryside? How slowly and quietly the freezing fog opens its cold arms? The birds stop singing. The suffocating silence envelops the neighbourhood. Once again something unnatural and evil walks the house, lurking for unwary souls. Turn on the lights, lock the doors, close the shutters, hide under the bed covers... I'm not saying it will help, but what if?

Book Short Summary:

The hit BBC series Sherlock offers a fresh, contemporary take on the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective. In this TV tie-in edition of the classic novel, first published in The Strand in 1901, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are called to the haunting and beautiful moors of Dartmoor and the home of the Baskerville family, who seem to have fallen victim to a family curse. A terrifying spectre in the shape of a great hound was once said to have hunted an ancestor across the moors and the recent, mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville suggests that the hound has returned. But is this really a supernatural curse or is a much more dastardly and earthly plot a foot? Sherlock and Dr Watson must solve the riddle of the hound before another murder is committed.

Book Short Summary:

A rollicking look at popular culture’s most beloved sleuth: “For even the casual fan, the history of this deathless character is fascinating” (The Boston Globe). Today he is the inspiration for fiction adaptations, blockbuster movies, hit television shows, raucous Twitter banter, and thriving subcultures. More than a century after Sherlock Holmes first capered into our world, what is it about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s peculiar creation that continues to fascinate us? Journalist and lifelong Sherlock fan Zach Dundas set out to find the answer. The result is The Great Detective: a history of an idea, a biography of someone who never lived, a tour of the borderland between reality and fiction, and a joyful romp through the world Conan Doyle bequeathed us. In this “wonderful book” (Booklist, starred review), Dundas unearths the inspirations behind Holmes and his indispensable companion, Dr. John Watson; explores how they have been kept alive over the decades by writers, actors, and readers; and visits locales—from the boozy annual New York City gathering of one of the world’s oldest and most exclusive Sherlock Holmes fan societies; to a freezing Devon heath out of The Hound of the Baskervilles; to sunny Pasadena, where Dundas chats with the creators of the smash BBC series Sherlock. Along the way, he discovers the ingredients that have made Holmes go viral—then, now, and as long as the game’s afoot.

Book Short Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Institut für England- und Amerikastudien), course: Crime Fiction, language: English, abstract: “Holmes is dead,” he said. “I have done with him.” (“Conan Doyle Dead From Heart Attack”) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle must have felt, at times, like the sorcerer’s apprentice in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s famous poem, unable to rid himself of the spirits he had conjured up. The Scot’s literary oeuvre comprises up to 200 individual publications, ranging from historical novels like Micah Clarke (1889), the science fiction classic The Lost World (1912), poetry and a wide selection of short stories to non-fictional works on spiritualism, colonial Africa and memoirs. (Keulks) But the diversity of the Conan Doyle canon reflects not only the author’s eclectic intellectual interests and approaches to his profession, but also attempts to counteract the popularity of one specific brainchild: Sherlock Holmes. (Keulks) It might not be quite how the author had hoped to be remembered, but the adventures involving the sleuth and Doctor Watson ensured that his literary legacy continues to thrive and inspire the works of others to the present day. On the following pages one particular piece of proof for Holmes’ continued popularity, the immensely successful television format Sherlock, is examined by putting it into context with other, preceding types of Conan Doyle adaptations and comparing the 2010 film version of the detective’s first case, entitled A Study in Pink, to its source text. After focusing on the representation of the main characters and their defining traits in both media forms, as well as the relationships they share with each other and supporting characters that appear over the course of the story, the paper then adds final remarks on the process of modernization and cultural modification of not only Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet and its protagonist, but also the contemporary movie series for an American audience.

Book Short Summary:

Genius. Braggart. Scientist. Fraud. Sherlock Holmes has been portrayed as all that and more. “The Early Punch Parodies of Sherlock Holmes” brings together the major stories, reviews, briefs and illustrations that appeared in the legendary British humor magazine during Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s lifetime. Annotated and presented in chronological order, this scrapbook charts the rise of Conan Doyle as a writer and public figure and the meteoric popularity of the world’s greatest consulting detective. “The Early Punch Parodies of Sherlock Holmes” contains: • All of the 17 stories in R.C. Lehmann’s “The Adventures of Picklock Holes.” • P.G. Wodehouse’s Sherlockian parodies “Dudley Jones, Bore-Hunter” and “The Prodigal.” • Briefs and article excerpts that praise and poke fun at Conan Doyle’s work and beliefs. • Five complete Holmes parodies including two that haven’t been seen for a century. • Cartoons by Punch artists E.T. Reed, Bernard Partridge and others. • Reviews of Conan Doyle’s books, including two of the “Sherlock Holmes” play starring William Gillette. • Notes on the historical background of the articles and writers, essays on Lehmann, Wodehouse and Punch, plus a new short story featuring Mark Twain and John H. Watson! More than a collection of humorous stories, “The Early Punch Parodies of Sherlock Holmes” shows how Sherlock Holmes shaped the culture, and how the culture shaped our view of Sherlock Holmes. The 223B Casebook Series from Peschel Press reprints the Sherlock Holmes parodies and pastiches published during Arthur Conan Doyle’s lifetime. In addition to being fun to read, the books show how contemporary writers reacted to Conan Doyle’s life and works, and how they reshaped Holmes for their own uses. The result is valuable insight into the “history behind the mystery” of the great detective‘s popularity and endurance.

Book Short Summary:

El perro de los Baskerville (The Hound of the Baskervilles) es la tercera novela de Arthur Conan Doyle que tiene como protagonista principal a Sherlock Holmes.Fue publicada por entregas en el The Strand Magazine entre 1901 y 1902. El libro trata de la tensión entre lo ultraterreno y lo real, entre la superstición y la ciencia.Holmes buscará la explicación lógica, que será la que se acabará imponiendo, dentro de los cánones de la novela policíaca, a los acontecimientos que se suceden en un páramo al oeste de Inglaterra.««En noviembre de 1891, Arthur Conan Doyle envió a su madre una carta en la que le comunicaba que pensaba asesinar a Holmes. [...] De la irritada decepción de los millones de lectores que seguían los casos del detective en todo el mundo [...] dan buena cuenta los periódicos de la época y, sobre todo, el hecho de que Doyle se viera obligado a rescatarlo (sin dar explicaciones) en esa obra maestra de la literatura policiaca que es El perro de los Baskerville (1901).»»Manuel Rodríguez Rivero, El País
