Sherlock Holmes, the greatest fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, used to be the creation of Scottish born creator and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning and astute commentary to solve difficult cases. He is arguably the most famous fictional detective ever created, and is among the best known and most universally recognizable literary characters in any genre.

Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Arthur Conan Doyle used to be born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, used to be born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, used to be Irish. They were married in 1855.

At the age of nine Conan Doyle used to be sent to the Roman Catholic Jesuit preparatory school, Hodder Place, Stonyhurst. He then went on to Stonyhurst College, leaving in 1875.

From 1876 to 1881 he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh. This required that he provide periodic medical assistance in the towns of Aston (now a district of Birmingham) and Sheffield. Even as studying, Conan Doyle began writing short stories. His first published story appeared in ‘Chambers’s Edinburgh Journal’ before he used to be 20. Following his graduation, he used to be employed as a ship’s doctor on the SS Mayumba throughout a voyage to the West African coast. He completed his doctorate in terms of tabes dorsalis in 1885.

In 1885, Conan Doyle married Louisa Hawkins, referred to as ‘Touie’. She suffered from tuberculosis and died on 4 July 1906. The following year he married Jean Elizabeth Leckie, whom he had first met and fallen in love with in 1897. Because of his sense of loyalty he had maintained a purely platonic relationship with Jean Even as his first wife used to be alive. Jean died in London on 27 June 1940.

Conan Doyle fathered five children. Two with his first wife—Mary Louise (28 January 1889 – 12 June 1976), and Arthur Alleyne Kingsley, referred to as Kingsley (15 November 1892 – 28 October 1918). With his second wife he had three children—Denis Percy Stewart (17 March 1909 – 9 March 1955), second husband in 1936 of Georgian Princess Nina Mdivani (circa 1910 – 19 February 1987; former sister-in-law of Barbara Hutton); Adrian Malcolm (19 November 1910–3 June 1970) and Jean Lena Annette (21 December 1912–18 November 1997).

Conan Doyle used to be found clutching his chest in the hall of Windlesham, his house in Crowborough, East Sussex, on 7 July 1930. He had died of a heart attack at age 71. His last words were directed toward his wife: “You are wonderful.”

Arma virumque cano: “I sing of warfare and a man at war.” Long the bane of second-year Latin students thrust into a rhetoric of sweeping, seemingly endless sentences full of difficult verb forms and obscure words, Virgil’s Aeneid finds a helpful translator in Robert Fitzgerald, who turns the lines into beautiful, accessible American English. Full of betrayal, heartache, seduction, elation, and violence, the Aeneid is the great founding epic of the Roman empire. Its pages sing of the Roman vision of self, the Roman ideal of what it meant to be a citizen of the world’s greatest power. The epic’s force carries across the centuries, and remains essential reading.
