Summary "Jaffe Organizes Doyle's diverse canon by genre and discusses it in the context of the late 19th century romantic revival. Devoting two chapters to the Holmes novels and stories, she shows Doyle fusing romantic assumptions with rationalist certainities, to create a uniquely popular hero: the knight-errant as master detective. Jaffe promotes renewed attention for Doyle's historical novels and scientific romances." Publisher's note
