The Red-headed League + CD (Level 2) by Arthur Conan Doyle, Doyle Arthur Conan
Автор: Doyle Arthur Conan Название: Casebook of Sherlock Holmes & His Last Bow ISBN: 1853260703 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781853260704 Издательство: Wordsworth Рейтинг: Цена: 245 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: These are the last 12 stories Conan Doyle wrote about Holmes and Watson. They reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920's in which they were written, and he can be seen to take advantage of new, more open conventions in fiction. Suicide as a murder weapon and homosexual incest are some of the psychological tragedies whose consequences are unravelled by the mind of Holmes before the eyes of Watson. That said, the collection also includes some of the best turns of wit in the series, and indeed in the whole of English literature.
Автор: Doyle Arthur Conan Название: Narrative of John Smith ISBN: 0712358412 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780712358415 Издательство: Неизвестно Рейтинг: Цена: 600 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (более 5-х шт.) Описание: Arthur Conan Doyle wrote The Narrative of John Smith in 1883 when he was just 23, living in Portsmouth and struggling to establish himself as a doctor and a writer. By that time he had succeeded in getting a number of short stories published in leading magazines of the day, such as Blackwood's, All the Year Round, London Society and the Boy's Own Paper. But, as was the accepted practice of literary journals of the time, his stories were published anonymously and Conan Doyle realised that to make his name as a writer he would have to write a novel.
That novel, the first he ever wrote, and published here for the first time, is The Narrative of John Smith. More a string of ruminations than a novel, it is however of considerable biographical importance and has exceptional value as a window into the mind of the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Many of the themes and tropes of his later writing, including his first Sherlock Holmes story A Study in Scarlet (published in 1887), can be clearly seen.
Via the protagonist, John Smith, a 50-year-old man confined to his room by an attack of gout, Conan Doyle sets down his thoughts and opinions on a range of subjects - literature, science, religion, war, education - with no detectable shyness or diffidence, full of bravado in the face of little professional success at that time. Although it has little in the way of plot it stands as a fascinating record of an early attempt at writing by a man who was on his way to being one of the best-known authors in the world.

Описание: Il più popolare detective di tutta la letteratura mondiale, Sherlock Holmes, creato nel 1887 dalla geniale penna di Arthur Conan Doyle, ha sempre un solo scopo: risolvere con l'arma della sua intelligenza gli enigmi che gli si presentano, anche quando sembrano assolutamente inespugnabili. Fedele alla sua "scienza della deduzione", che sfrutta ogni minimo indizio, segno o dettaglio per trovare la soluzione, affronta crimini ingarbugliati e appassionanti con freddezza ed estrema razionalità. "Le avventure di Sherlock Holmes" riunisce dodici casi, uno più complesso dell'altro, in cui il celebre investigatore deve salvare la vita di un uomo o il patrimonio di una banca o una donna in pericolo, ricorrendo anche a travestimenti (da prete, da marinaio o da mendicante). Immancabilmente, al suo fianco c'è il dottar Watson, amico e biografo, sbalordito quanto il lettore dalle infallibili capacità deduttive di Holmes. Introduzione di Giuseppe Bonura.

Описание: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are overshadowed by the event with which they close - the meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. Their struggle, seemingly to the death, was to leave many readers desolate at the loss of Holmes, but was also to lead to his immortality as a literary figure. However illogical as a detective story, `The final Problem` has proved itself an unforgettable tale. The stories that precede it included twonarratives from Holmes himself, on a mutiny at sea and a treasure hunt in a Sussex country house, as well as a meeting with his brilliant brother Mycroft, of whom Holmes says, `If the art of the detective began and ended in reasoning from any armchair, my brother would be the greatest criminal agent that everlived.`
