‘Sherlock Holmes - The Ultimate Anti-hero?’

Friday 8th November


Sherlock Holmes is one of literature's classic anti-heroes. Examining the concept of Holmes as the anti-hero, Dr Jennifer Ash discusses the blurred lines between good and evil within Doyle's archetypal character construction. She will explore the modern use of historically placed anti-heroes, using illustrations from the Folville Chronicles.
