Sherlock Holmes The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die is a compilation of several shorter analyses and monographs on Sherlock Holmes and the late Victorian society of which he was a part, spanning such subjects as depictions of late Victorian London in contemporary art and Bohemianism I found it an insightful, well written and very entertaining read, diverting from the usual Sherlock Holmes analyses by focusing a whole lot on society and culture than on fictional biography As such, it actually contributed to my understanding of both the London depicted in Sherlock Holmes and the stories themselves, which is a noteworthy achievement when one takes into account that my obsession with all things Sherlock Holmes has been going on for several years Recommended to anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes, London, Victorian England and everything in between. When the excellent Museum of London curated a special exhibition about Sherlock Holmes I expected this 2014 volume to be an illustrated guidebook In fact it is a large volume of 256 pages of illustrated articles about many aspects of Sherlock Holmes by several distinguished contributors compiled by Alex Werner curator of the exhibition A substantial edition to Sherlock Holmes scholarship it is a most excellent read containing much analysis and profusely illustrated It is just a pity that I did not get the chance to visit the exhibition itself. I was fortunate enough to see the Sherlock Holmes Exhibition at the Museum of London in October 2014 It was a fantastic experience and one I ll always treasure This book, the official companion to the exhibition, is filled with excellent essays, including some on the histories of both Sherlock Holmes and London and the many stage screen book adaptations over the years If you love Sherlock Holmes and London, you will love this book.
