The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand magazine, in which they were first published, and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The detective is at the height of his powers and the volume is full of famous cases, including `The Red-Headed League', `The Blue Carbuncle', and `The Speckled Band'. Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility, Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler - the woman - in the very first story, `A Scandal in Bohemia'. The editor of this volume, Richard Lancelyn Green is editor of The Uncollected Sherlock Holmes and The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. With John Michael Gibson, he compiled the Soho Series Bibliography of A. Conan Doyle.About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe.

Czy w dzisiejszych czasach przygody Sherlocka są dalej aktualne? Czy facet, który ma na imię Conan i tytuł szlachecki mógłby ...
This one contains some of the most famous stories of the Sherlockian canon (such as A Scandal in Bohemia, The Speckled Band, and The Red-Headed League), but it has also its fair share of the less brilliant. Five Orange Pips is certainly lame; everyone acts stupidly there, starting with the criminals...
Myślę, że nie muszę nikomu przedstawiać Sherlocka Holmesa ani jego wiernego przyjaciela i kompana doktora Watsona. Jest to para charakterystyczna, niewątpliwie dopełniają się nawzajem. Można się z nimi świetnie bawić a ich dialogi bywają barwne. Sama już nie wiem, którego z tych panów lubię bardziej...
Happy Halloween Bingo 2016 everyone! My first post, my first square - Creepy Crawlies. I chose The Adventure of the Speckled Band from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It's a re-read but it's easily one of my top 5 favourites of the Holmes canon. A young woman living under the repression of...
