Carr, John Dickson:
The Life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Paperback

ISBN: 9780786712342

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: DA CAPO PR], A great modern master of detective fiction writes the life of the man who created the most famous literary detective of them all This singularly vivid biography, written by John Dickson Carr, a giant in the field of mystery fiction, benefits from his full access to the archives of the eminent Sir Arthur Conan Doyle--to his notebooks, diaries, press clippings, and voluminous correspondence. Like his creation Sherlock Holmes, Doyle had "a horror of destroying documents, " and until his death in 1930, they accumulated to vast amount throughout his house at Windlesham. They also provide many of the words incorporated by Carr in his lively, emotionally immediate portrayal of Doyle's forays into politics, his infatuation with spiritualism, his literary ambitions, and dinner-table conversations with friends like H. G. Wells and King Edward VII. Carr, then, in a sense collaborates with his subject to unfold a colorful narrative that takes Doyle from his school days at Stonyhurst to Edinburgh University and a medical practice at Southsea, where he conceived the idea of wedding scientific study to criminal investigation in the fictive person of Sherlock Holmes. It also explores the private tragedy of Doyle's first marriage and long-delayed second as it follows him into the arena of public activity, propaganda, and literary output that would win him not only celebrity but also (under protest) knighthood.
