The adventures of sherlock holmes
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, an English novelist, was born in 1859 and Knighted in 1902 for his public defence of British cause in the Boer Wars. He was educated at Stonyhurst College in Germany and at Edinburgh University. He did his M.B. in 1881 and M.D. in 1885. He was a practicing physician in Southsea, England prior to his career as an author.
Although he is chiefly remembered as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, he wrote a number of well-received novels in other genres too at times he felt imprisoned by the success of Holmes, and in one short story he tried to kill him off so that he could devote his time and energies for writing other kinds of book. If he had succeeded In this plan, it is likely that we would have more books featuring the formidable Professor Challenger, who is the hero of “The Lost World” first published in 1912 and the two other books-The Poison Belt (1913) and The Land of Mist (1926). With the publication of The Lost World, Challenger instantly become Conan Doyle’s second most famous and enduring character.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in 1930.
