Sherlock Holmes

'The first class will introduce the most famous “consulting detective” in the world. For every other class meeting, we will read and discuss some of Holmes’ most challenging cases, beginning with “A Study in Scarlet” and including, among others, “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Speckled Band,” “The Final Problem” and The Hound of the Baskervilles. Along the way we’ll get to know the creator of Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes’ roommate, friend and scribe, Dr. John Watson, Holmes’ arch enemy, Professor Moriarty, and Irene Adler, always known by Holmes as “the woman.” For every other class meeting, we will watch and discuss some of the best cinematic “Sherlocks,” such as Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
