Edited by Peter X. Accardo, John Bergquist, and Dan Posnansky
The Houghton Library at Harvard sponsored a three-day symposium on 7-9 May 2009 entitled "Arthur Conan Doyle: A Sesquicentennial Assessment." The symposium consisted of four academic sessions with fourteen presentations. This volume includes all the essays read at the symposium. These essays broaden our understanding of Doyle in light of recent biographical studies; examine the enduring popularity of the Sherlockian Canon; revisit his non-canonical fiction, historical and social writings; and witness Doyle's legacy as promoted by literary societies and through teaching.
Edited by Peter X. Accardo, John Bergquist and Dan Posnansky, the Symposium Proceedings include papers by Doyle biographers Andrew Lycett and Daniel Stashower; by professors Giles Constable, Eve Mayer, and Charles J. Rzepka; and by such other experts as Thomas J. Francis, Leslie Klinger, Glen Miranker, Richard Olken, Steve Rothman, and Randall Stock.
