Arthur Conan Doyle
is schrijver.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the creator Sherlock Holmes, the best-known detective in literature and the embodiment of scientific thinking. Doyle himself was not a good example of rational personality: he believed in fairies and was interested in occultism. Sherlock Holmes stories have been translated into more than fifty languages, and made into plays, films, radio and television series, a musical comedy, a ballet, cartoons, comic books, and advertisement. By 1920 Doyle was one of the most highly paid writers in the world.
Doyle was born on May 22, 1859 at Picardy Place, Edinburgh, as the son of Charles Altamont Doyle, a civil servant in the Edinburgh Office of Works, and Mary (Foley) Doyle. Both of Doyle's parents were Roman Catholics. His father suffered from epilepsy and alcoholism and was eventually institutionalized. Charles Altamont died in an asylum in 1893. In the same year Doyle decided to finish permanently the adventures of his master detective. Because of financial problems, Doyle's mother kept a boarding house. Dr. Tsukasa Kobayashi has suspected in an article, that Doyle's mother had a long affair with Bryan Charles Waller, a lodger and a student of pathology, who had a deep impact to Conan Doyle.

Samenvatting

This volume contains the collected stories of the Baker Street Irregulars, a group of London street urchins hired by the great detective Sherlock Holmes to aid him with his investigations. Famed for being able to hear all the streets have to tell and described by Holmes as “The Baker Street division of the detective police force”, the boys, led by their leader, Wiggins, collect vital information from the underbelly of Victorian London. Contents include: 'A Study in Scarlet' (1887), The Sign of Four' (1890), and 'The Crooked Man' (1893). A must-read for anyone who is a fan of Doyle's famous detective novels or the BBC series 'The Irregulars'. Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) was a British writer, famous for his character 'Sherlock Holmes'. Whilst studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh, Doyle began writing short stories, and his first piece was published before he was 20. In 1887, Conan Doyle's first significant work, 'A Study in Scarlet', appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual. It featured the first appearance of the detective Sherlock Holmes. A prolific writer, Conan Doyle continued to produce a range of fictional works over the following years and is still being referenced today.
