The Return of Sherlock Holmes

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    •  Made up of the thirteen stories that delivered Sherlock Holmes' return after his 'death' at the Reichbach Falls

    •  The stories hark back to earlier tales while pushing Holmes in new directions - his deductions are less self-assured and, whereas earlier stories had largely avoided sensationalism, the stories of The Return are more visceral and bloody

    •  Part of a set of new, refreshed editions of all Sherlock Holmes stories

    New to this Edition:

    •  A new introduction considers how The Return marks a new kind of self-reflexivity in the Holmes stories, with Doyle now consciously writing for a body of established Holmes 'fans'

    •  Updated bibliography surveys the substantial expansion of Doyle studies in recent years

    •  New critical notes explain more obscure terminology, draw attention to literary references, and elucidate the contemporary scientific and criminological contexts
