Review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Alan Bradley

Ms Holmes of Baker Street The Truth About Sherlock ¼ There is something of Baker Epub #181 passing strange about Sherlock Holmes You’ve seen me as an old lady Watson I was never convincing Sherlock Holmes The Mazarin Stone Sherlock Holmes strides into our imagination deerstalker hat set jauntily on his head pipe protruding from his mouth and a formidable intellect from which he painstakingly masters the mysteries he investigates Yet the ualities that set Holmes apart as a masterf. I've just finished a thought provoking little book by Alan C Bradley and William A S Sarjeant entitled Ms Holmes of Baker Street The Truth About Sherlock Their thesis is of course summed up in the work's title Sherlock Holmes was a womanAt first glance this seems like a ludicrous idea if not positively heretical Yet the authors support their claim with uote after uote and incident after incident taken from the Holmes canon instances which taken individually are insufficient to prove the authors' case but which in the aggregate do perhaps appear to suggest a female in disguise Most telling to my mind are Holmes's periodic indisposition and tendency to take to his her bed periodic being the operative word Too there is Irene Adler's emphasis on the masculine appellation when disguised as a boy she brushes past Holmes in front of his apartments with a uiet Good night Mister Sherlock Holmes Moriarty in his turn threatens not to kill Holmes but to destroy him something Moriarty would have been able to do with ease had he penetrated Sherlock's disguiseThe authors like most Sherlockians treat the Conan Doyle stories as fact Working within the canon they believe that even Watson was unaware of Holmes's femininity for many years There is no suggestion that Conan Doyle himself ever intended to place Holmes's gender in doubtTheir premise is of course an intriguing and amusing or infuriating one depending on the strength of the reader's own perception of Holmes Their argument is slightly marred by the fact that the authors having first conceived of the idea then looked exhaustively for evidence in support of their thesis without examining in much detail the evidence to the contrary the mark of an enthusiast rather than a truly impartial investigator However I thoroughly enjoyed playing the game temporarily suspending my own concept of Holmes in favor of the authors' as I read In the end however what keeps me from embracing their conclusion wholeheartedly is my own partiality Holmes to me is not merely the detective of the Conan Doyle stories but the much complex human and admirable man in Laurie R King's Mary Russell series a series and a Holmes which have become real to me than the Conan Doyle canon ever didETA 4222019 There are now at least two genderbent Sherlock Holmes pastiches available Sherry Thomas's Lady Sherlock series and Claire O'Dell's Janet Watson Chronicles Both are worth readingReview originally published on 4152010 at The Bookwyrm's Hoard Review ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Alan Bradley
