Summary
"Holmes and Watson are more popular than ever. Adaptations describe him as tech savvy, scientifically detached, even psychologically aberrant; he has been romantically linked to The Woman and bromantically to Watson. These 14 essays analyze Sherlock Holmes as a cultural icon and explain why he is destined to be a beloved if controversial character for years to come"--Provided by publisher
