Sir arthur conan doyle. I had seen little of Holmes lately. My marriage had drifted us away from each other. My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between.

A concoction of twelve stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the third book in the original Sherlock Holmes series. Great adventures as usual - nothing beats Sherlock Holmes. Started off a little shaky but quickly got into his stride and became very enjoyable. Here's to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. One of the greatest write ever lived. Ranks up there with Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Alan Poe, Mary Shelly and others of that time.

With the success of his Sherlock Holmes stories, Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) abandoned his career as a physician and devoted himself to writing. In addition to 56 short stories and 4 novels starring the famous sleuth, Doyle wrote historical novels, plays, poetry, and nonfiction.

Arthur Conan Doyle, freed from Sherlock Holmes, wrote other stories, and invented a character named Etienne Gerard, a soldier in Napoleon's army. The Gerard stories were popular, but not nearly as popular as Sherlock Holmes. In 1897 Conan Doyle wrote a play about Holmes, and an actor, William Gillette, became a sensation playing the detective on Broadway in New York City. Gillette added another facet to the character, the famous meerschaum pipe. For his services he was knighted in 1902, becoming Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The author died on July 7, 1930. His death was newsworthy enough to be reported on the front page of the next day's New York Times. A headline referred to him as "Spiritist, Novelist, and Creator of Famous Fiction Detective. As Conan Doyle believed in an afterlife, his family said they were awaiting a message from him after death.

It helps middle and high school students understand Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's literary masterpiece. Holmes wasn't instantly popular by any means. Conan Doyle had some minor success with his first two Holmes novels, A Study in Scarlet (1888) and The Sign of Four (1890), but it wasn't until Doyle started publishing Holmes-based short stories in a new fiction magazine, The Strand, that the character and his tales really started to take off. It was still pretty standard in the late nineteenth century for English novels to appear chapter by chapter in magazines before being collected into one published volume – that's how the first two Holmes novels appeared
