A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

"'Well?' "'My heart grew light when I saw him drive away. My son is on leave just now, but I did not tell him anything of all this, for his temper is violent, and he is passionately fond of his sister. When I closed the door behind them a load seemed to be lifted from my mind. Alas, in less than an hour there was a ring at the bell, and I learned that Mr. Drebber had returned. He was much excited, and evidently the worse for drink. He forced his way into the room, where I was sitting with my daughter, and made some incoherent remark about having missed his train. He then turned to Alice, and before my very face, proposed to her that she should fly with him. "You are of age," he said, "and there is no law to stop you. I have money enough and to spare. Never mind the old girl here, but come along with me now straight away. You shall live like a princess." Poor Alice was so frightened that she shrunk away from him, but he caught her by the wrist and endeavoured to draw her towards the door. I screamed, and at that moment my son Arthur came into the room. What happened then I do not know. I heard oaths and the confused sounds of a scuffle. I was too terrified to raise my head. When I did look up I saw Arthur standing in the doorway laughing, with a stick in his hand. "I don't think that fine fellow will trouble us again," he said. "I will just go after him and see what he does with himself." With those words he took his hat and started off down the street. The next morning we heard of Mr. Drebber's mysterious death.'

Epidemiological study of scarlet fever in Shenyang, China

Epidemiological study of scarlet fever in Shenyang, China

In spite of the above findings, the limitations in our study should be considered. First, not all children aged 3–11 are enrolled in kindergarten or primary school and so further work is required to explore whether children in kindergar- ten or primary school are at higher risk of scarlet fever than children who are not in enrolled in school. Secondly, we did not analyze the reasons that the incidence is higher in Shenyang than in the rest of China, we will also conduct more studies to analyze the reasons for the higher incidence in Shenyang compared with other places in the future. Thirdly, our study confirmed once again that scarlet fever was more likely to occur in children, and once again em- phasized the importance of strengthening prevention and control measures in kindergartens and primary schools, but our study provided no new information on risk factors, we will also do further work to study the risk factors of scarlet fever and provide more scientific evidence for the preven- tion and control of scarlet fever in the future.

Towards Non-Spontaneity in Interpretation of Implicature Serving Implicit Characterization: The Case of Subsidiary Trait Precipitation in Arthur C. Doyle’s ‘A Study in Scarlet’

Towards Non-Spontaneity in Interpretation of Implicature Serving Implicit Characterization: The Case of Subsidiary Trait Precipitation in Arthur C. Doyle’s ‘A Study in Scarlet’

of fiction as part of a fictional character’s verbal discourse cannot merely take the exact same treatment as those occur- ring in spoken language, as spontaneity is not fully expected of and imposed on readers’ interpretation of them. To de- scribe their presence and role, five samples out of Arthur C. Doyle’s ‘A Study in Scarlet’ were analysed in detail to deter- mine a) how they are produced by authors through characters, b) what they lead to, and c) how they are interpreted in the absence of spontaneity. It was shown that authors make cer- tain presuppositions, and also based on the communicative intents and preferences, and traits of the characters through they choose to implicate, make certain implications through certain utterances from the characters. With their own pre- suppositions, readers take the implicata-holding utterances in the text as material for analysis, draw not only as many implicated premises and conclusions from them as they can, but they also deduce what presuppositions were made by the author and are expected of him/her (see Figure 1). This is to say that in a literary context, due to the writer’s preliminary concern and planning for them in his presuppositional as- sumptions and considerations, it is central for implicatures to have been thought of, hoped for and meant for as early as in the presuppositional phase of the writer giving written form to character utterances. In consequence of the writer’s planning ahead, making certain presuppositions and expect- ing some on the part of the reader are partly responsible for triggering implicated premises and conclusions.

Possessions and obsessions:fandom and the case of Arthur Conan Doyle

Possessions and obsessions:fandom and the case of Arthur Conan Doyle

The Sherlock Holmes Canon is generally understood to be the 56 short stories as published in the Strand (and then as books in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, His Last Bow, and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes), and the four novels (A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Valley of Fear). 26 This has been formed by a consensus and is one that the Sherlockian fandom takes seriously in their re-working of the Canon for fanfiction, fan-scholarship, and adaptations. Yet the formation of what is known as ‘the Canon’ in Sherlockian circles is fascinating. In David Leslie Murray’s review of Baker-Street Studies (1934), a group of essays written by members of the Sherlock Holmes Society in the style of the Game, he comments that ‘except for questioning a date or a name here and there [the writers] accept the Murray Revised Version in two volumes as apparently a canon not to be questioned’ (1934a, p. 523). These editions were published by London publisher John Murray as the Sherlock Holmes Complete Short Stories (1928) and Sherlock Holmes Complete Long Stories (1929), which defines the Canon as described above and each is inscribed with a preface written by Conan Doyle offering conciliatory words about the quality of the Canon. Conan Doyle describes, for example, how the surprise plot twists of the short stories suffered ‘as [Holmes’] methods and character became familiar to the public’ (1928, p. v), making them predictable. He says, ‘I hope, however, that the reader who can now take them in any order will not find that the end shows any conspicuous falling off from the modest merits of the beginning’ (1928, p. v). His comments echo his words in his autobiography: ‘though the general average [of the stories] may not be

The Scarlet Letter and Post Modernism

The Scarlet Letter and Post Modernism

Postmodernism is a convoluted and nebulous term to define as it involves a plethora of major and minor details that appear in a wide variety of areas of study like art, literature, culture architecture, technology, education. Equally problematical is to locate it historically as well as temporally. One of the principal areas of post modernism that continues to inspire critical debate is its strong scepticism of the grand narratives of modernism. Contrary to the modernist focus on hierarchical grand positions, post modernism as Lyotard envisioned it “preaches an appreciation and respect for diversity, for local differences, for the plurality of ways in which human choose to live”. This study aims to analyse Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter as a postmodern text for it demonstrates a strong disinclination to uphold logocentric, monologic, absolute, universalist and structured metanarratives. It will be argued that a strong and hierarchical power structure supports and uphold these metanarratives for specific objectives of perpetuation of the governance and authority over the people. Thus, it links Lyotard’s scepticism of metanarratives with Foucault’s discourse of knowledge and power. It will be argued that resistance and opposition to this phenomenon is pre-eminently demonstrated not only by the most marginalized Hester Prynne, but also by Arthur Dimmesdale who has been one of the beneficiaries of these metanarratives. In countering and opposing the metanarratives, both establish a space for the legitimization of pluralism, diversity and heterogeneity as well as post modern liberation from the totalitarian persecution of the marginalized and the dissident voices.

Comparative Analysis of Nathaniel Hawthorne the Scarlet and Arthur Miller the Crucible

Comparative Analysis of Nathaniel Hawthorne the Scarlet and Arthur Miller the Crucible

This study manages near writing which is center around the religious esteems and punishments of adulterous affair. It looks at the infidelity discipline in the estimation of religiosity connected in the two abstract works "The Scarlet Letter" and "The Crucible". Both are set in Puritan New England in the seventeenth century and spin around the unforgiving law implementation of the time.The reasons for the examination are centers around the consequence of the estimation of the relative hypothesis about the impact of Puritanism to the infidelity discipline on the two scholarly works and gives new understanding, that the overwhelming force could give a solid impact to history in which the creator just assumes a little part to mirror the wholeness of the history.The Puritans had an intensely imperative part in the arrangement of Early America, and in addition a religion that affected our initial American Society.These two specific essayists who composed of Puritan times passed on in their content, the similitude's of religion discipline, and infidelity in the Puritan people group of seventeenth Century.

Sherlock Holmes: A Character of the City. Analysis of the Nineteenth Century city in Arthur Conan Doyle’s series.

Sherlock Holmes: A Character of the City. Analysis of the Nineteenth Century city in Arthur Conan Doyle’s series.

The central question, posed in the introduction was: what was the message that Arthur Conan Doyle possibly wished to send his contemporary readers through his description of London and his use of the genre of crime fiction? The first novel, A Study in Scarlet, placed emphasis on Watson’s anxieties as he travelled to London for the first time. The city is described to be ‘a great cesspool’ as well as an ‘enormous wilderness’, the stereotypical image of the city. It has grown to such an extent that authors, as well as the common people who inhabited the city were searching for ways to control the city. Watson feels disoriented, out of balance as he has come to this new reality where he knows no one. Sherlock does not display these anxieties at all, is completely at ease within the city. It is the country which makes Sherlock Holmes feel uncomfortable, anxious even. From the beginning he possesses an extensive knowledge of the city and enjoys taking long walks through the city. He is even capable of walking through the lowest parts of the city, parts that his contemporary readers would most likely avoid like the plague. Thus through Holmes, Conan Doyle attempts to show that it is not necessary to fear the city, as long as one believes in the protection of Sherlock Holmes and makes an effort to familiarise his or herself with the terrain.

The Archontic Holmes: Understanding adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories in the context of Jacques Derrida's “Archive”

The Archontic Holmes: Understanding adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories in the context of Jacques Derrida's “Archive”

When seeking examples of repetition in literature, adaptations – specifically fanfiction – would seem to offer easy sites of comparison between texts demarcated as “sources” and subordinate texts created via the repetition of key features. However, rather than describing a definitive hierarchy between sources and subordinate texts, a consideration of the fanfiction surrounding one particular source reveals a complex web of interdependency, one that can be extended to describe the functions and relations of all texts, not just those that claim explicit inter-relations. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's series of Sherlock Holmes (SH) detective stories and their subsequent adaptations (including, but not limited to, works of criticism, screen adaptations, unofficial sequels in novel form, and fanfiction) provide a wealth of data in this vein. Between 1887 and 1927, Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories featuring the detective Holmes and Dr. John Watson. For clarity, these sixty, Doyle- penned texts will be referred to collectively as the SH Canon, and the sum of the SH Canon and all its adaptations as the SH Archive, for reasons that will become apparent. The SH fandom (from “fanatic domain”), as a microcosmic example of multiple intertexts, provides evidence of how sources and adaptations interact, and a model for the intertextual nature of all literary production. Jacques Derrida's concept of the archive will be used as a theoretical basis for the examination of the SH Archive, though concepts from theorists as diverse as Gilles Deleuze, Mikhail Bakhtin and Roland Barthes are required to fully explicate the complexity of adaptations. Abigail Derecho, Daria Pimenova, Christopher Marlow and Barbara Johnson's applications of Derrida's theories will be used to analyse various adaptations of SH, with examples drawn from television adaptations, traditionally published texts and online fantexts.

Conan Rpg - Aquilonia - Flower of the West

Conan Rpg - Aquilonia - Flower of the West

He is disturbing, unpredictable and a thoroughly masculine presence. Conan has so much energy and passion women have no problems seducing him, although it is much harder to form a relationship with him. His love affair with Bêlit is a legendary exception, probably because she could deal with the simmering danger lurking just barely beneath the surface. He will never allow a woman to dominate him and he will keep a woman only as long as he wants her. He is direct and forceful in approaching women and there are not too many who can avoid responding to his physical passion, as uncomplicated as it might be, because he brings out the full sensual potential in any woman he is with intimately. He has the uncanny ability to understand a woman’s sensual needs and he makes his women feel as though they are at their best while they are with him. On a religious level, Conan believes in Crom, although he does not pray to that grim god. He also swears by other Cimmerian, Æsir, Zamorian and Shemite gods, although he does not pray or sacrifice to them either. Crom and his race of gods despise weaklings who call on them for aid and would likely make the situation worse for the petitioner. The Cimmerians value individuality and self-worth; their gods expect them to take care of life themselves. Indeed, Crom only took pride in a Cimmerian if that Cimmerian never called upon him for aid in his life. Cimmerians are supposed to take what they want from life, not ask a god for blessings, wealth, health or anything else. Conan does not want to attract Crom’s attention, or any god’s, for Conan once said he would not want to walk on their shadow even. As Conan said, ‘What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die. Better to be silent than to call his attention to you; he will send you dooms, not fortune! He is grim and loveless…’ In Conan’s experience, the actions of Crom, of any real supernatural entity, usually bring about the destruction of men, not the succour of man. Simply put, Conan does not pray to Crom… ever. Conan is very different from most Cimmerians, despite his doomed moodiness. Most Cimmerians are depressive and dismal all the time and not usually given to wanderlust. Conan’s mirth is as gigantic as his depressions are deep and, as stated earlier, Conan is a wanderer. As one of Conan’s councillors says in The Phoenix on the Sword, ‘I never saw another Cimmerian who drank aught but water, or who ever laughed, or ever sang save to chant dismal dirges.’ Conan, in many ways, is more like the Æsir than he is like the typical Cimmerian.

MGP7702 - Conan d20 - The Scrolls of Skelos

It was a snake that dwarfed all Conan’s previous ideas of snakes. Eighty feet it stretched from its pointed tail to its triangular head, which was bigger than that of a horse. In the dim light its shadows glistened coldly, white as hoar-frost. Surely this reptile was one born and grown in darkness, yet its eyes were full of evil and sure sight. It looped its titan coils in front of the captive, and the great head on the arching neck swayed a matter of inches from his face. Its forked tongue almost brushed his lips as it darted in and out, and its fetid odor made his senses reel with nausea. The great yellow eyes burned into his, and Conan gave back the glare of a trapped wolf. He fought frenziedly against the mad impulse to grasp the great arching neck in his tearing hands. Strong beyond the comprehension of civilized man, he had broken the neck of a python in a frenzied battle on the Stygian coast, in his corsair days. But this reptile was venomous; he saw the great fangs, a foot long, curved like scimitars. From them dripped a colorless liquid that he instinctively knew was death. He might conceivably crush that wedge-shaped skull with a desperate clenched fist, but he knew that at the first hint of movement, the monster would strike like lightning.

American Dream and Arthur Miller: A Study of The Price

American Dream and Arthur Miller: A Study of The Price

The American Dream, the idea that incorporates hard work, persistence, initiative and possibly a little bit of luck; and if anyone can possess it one can reap the rewards of success. We find such persons who are constantly in search to possess it in Arthur Miller’s plays. Whether it is Joe Keller in All My Sons, Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman, or the Franz brothers in The Price, each, embraces the illusion of attaining this intangible mythic American Dream. Miller’s characters confront and struggle to confer a definite shape to this elusive nature of dream; one that Miller feels makes the “common man as apt a subject for tragedy in its highest sense as kings were.” All My Sons is the story of a man realizing the effects of his choices for attaining prosperity have on others, Death of a Salesman is the story of a man living with the illusions of success that have governed his life and again The Price is the story of two sons rediscovering the actions of their long-deceased father – who was devastated in the Depression along with the collapse of his American Dream – with their own pursuits and dreams. Many of Miller’s characters reside in between the world of actuality and aspiration, or reality and illution. In a conversation with Murray Schumach, Arthur Miller himself states:
