However despite his clear skill in writing, his mother insisted he become a doctor, so he went to the University of Edinburgh’s medical school once he graduated Stonyhurst. However, this experience only inspired more of his work, as according to Smith’s article, “ he had few patients, so he spent much of his time writing”(2015). It was during this time that he wrote his first Sherlock Holmes book. In his life, Arthur Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories and 4 novels starring his famous detective character, Sherlock Holmes. What made the series stand out was not necessarily the characters or the stories, but the way Conan wrote his stories, and the methods of deducting his characters would use.
TITLE There are are many detectives in the world but two outstanding investigators, in reality, never existed. Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie respectively, are two of the most phenomenal fictional detectives, as well as the most well-known. They have many different qualities, but they are both very successful and accomplished. There are several aspects of the character and personality of these two men that make them the detectives that they are, yet they differ from each other almost completely. The qualities of a detective that make them successful change, depending on the situation and person, where different techniques will be effective.
However the art critic did not mean it as a compliment but it gained popularity and in future use, took on a far more respectful connotation. The Impressionist movement transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Not only did he lead the French impressionist movement but he also led the way to twentieth-century modernism by developing a unique style that strove to capture, on canvas, the very act of perceiving nature. Impressionism continues to be one of the most reproduced styles of art for popular consumption and this can all be brought back to Monet and those inspired by him. Monet’s lead role in this period of time has lead to him being widely recognized for his participation and has made his work more popular because it represents a great period of
In “Bones”, the forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, also known as Bones, has many similarities to the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is an intelligent human machine who is detached from society with the exception of his occupation. Although Sherlock Holmes does have a family, he isolates himself from them. In both the books and television shows, Sherlock Holmes is represented as the best of his kind. Not to mention he loves and feeds on the intellect and excitement of a new case.
Of course, though these stereotypes might be accurate at times, there are situations where they are completely defied. The famous author Agatha Christie recognized this pattern and applied the formulas to her novels. In Murder on the Orient Express, Christie created quite a stereotypical atmosphere -where every character is judged by their nationality, but defies those stereotypes planted on them. This theme leads to the thought of the relationship between stereotypes and racism. There is a

The third most outstanding author ever is still remarkably popular today. Agatha Christie has only been outsold by The Bible and William Shakespeare. Even forty-two years after her death, her short stories and novels are read by people nationwide. Christie didn’t always have the thought of being a writer, but the interesting events that took place in her life started her career. Today’s popular television show of Doctor Who even recognized Christie and her works in one of their episodes.
A crime that reaches Sherlock Holmes is not just a broken law, but a mystery. Trivia locates patterns to form functional solutions, while Doyle creates a world of disguises, drugs, and intrigue, in which the answer is never the obvious or expected. The facts presented are not the definite, or even likely, conclusion. This is apparent in the story’s mystery, in which the wife of Neville St. Clair witnessed what appeared to be her husband’s murder, leading to the arrest of a beggar, Hugh Boone, who was found at the scene of the crime. However, Sherlock Holmes deduces that Boone and St. Clair are the same man, revealing that St. Clair had been commuting to the city to beg rather than work and had allowed his own arrest to protect his ruse.
The story “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle describes a money hungry step father who is willing to kill his step daughters to keep his dead wife's money for himself. To expose the true killer of her sister Helen Stoner asks Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. They use clues such as a saucer of milk that revealed there was an animal; to narrow the search down to her step father being the killer. The author creates tension by using clue accumulation, red herrings and the passage of time. Additionally, William Brittan creates suspense by using dramatic irony, inference gaps and foreshadowing in “The Man Who Read John Dickson Carr”.
In the Sherlock Christmas special, The Abominable Bride, Sherlock Holmes spent the majority of the episode in his mind palace attempting to figure out how Jim Moriarty could have faked his own death. In the end, Holmes concludes that, despite the police’s inability to recover Moriarty’s body, that the consulting criminal dead. However, if this is true, who put out the gif of Moriarty? (‘Did you miss me?’) Based on Holmes’ original canon, the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Moriarty refers to two people: Most notably, Professor Moriarty, the man who killed Sherlock Holmes in “The Final Problem.” Notice the lack of forename in the name. Within the same story, Watson refers to the name of another family member when he writes of “the recent letters in which Colonel James Moriarty defends the memory of his brother.” Based on this, it is a logical conclusion that there are two men sharing the surname Moriarty—a maths professor and a Colonel.
