Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a novelist, a detective-story writer, and a physician. He was born on May 22, 1859 and died on July 7, 1930. He began writing The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in 1890 and finished writing it in 1892. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was so successful in his writing that he gave up his career as a physician only five years after the creation of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson were created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in a bar in England when Doyle was having legal problems. The story took place in March of 1888.
Sherlock Holmes resided at 221 Baker Street in London, England. Inside his room were all the materials he needed to use to solve his cases: One night, it was on the twentieth of March 1888, I was returning from a journey to a patient, when my way led me through Baker Street. His rooms were brilliantly lit, and, even as I looked up I saw his tall, spare figure pass twice in a dark silhouette against the blind. The second half of the story took place at Briony Lodge. This is where Irene Adler resided.
Her house had a small garden and was two stories high. The story began when Doctor Watson visited Sherlock Holmes. Holmes told Watson that he needed his help on a case. The case involved pictures ofthe King of Bohemia and a woman named Irene Alder.

The King of Bohemia was going to marry a woman he loved, but Irene Alder blackmailed him withthe pictures. Irene Alder was in love with the King and did not want him to marry another woman. Sherlock Holmes came up with a plan to get the pictures back from Irene Alder. Holmes had a group of his friends cause a commotion with Irene in front of her house. Then, Holmes das he into the crowd to pretend that he was protecting the woman and was punched by one of the men. He had concealed small amount of red paint in his hand.
When the fight was broken up, Holmes was on the ground with the paint on his face. He pretended that he was seriously injured and was brought into Irene’s house. While Holmes was being cared for by Irene and a small crowd of people, Doctor Watson sent a smoke rocket into her house and started yelling “fire!” . Irene ran to a sliding panel just above the right bell-pull in order to save thepictures from the fire. When Holmes saw the place where she had run, he knew where the pictures were and told the people that it was a false alarm. The next morning the King of Bohemia and Sherlock Holmes found out that Irene Alder married a man named Godfrey Norton.
Irene had left England the night before with her husband. Holmes went to her house and opened the sliding panel to find only a picture of Irene and a letter a dressed to Sherlock Holmes. The letter said that the King of Bohemia did not have to worry about thepictures, for she loved another man better than he. It also said that she kept thepictures only to protect herself. The King of Bohemia then asked SherlockHolmes what he wanted for his services and offered him a ring. Holmes told theKing he did not want the ring, but only the picture of Irene.
Count Von Kramm was the King of Bohemia. He was extremely tall and was a well built man. His clothes were that of the best fabric available at the time. He wore a broad brimmed hat with a black vizard mask that concealed the upper part of his face: A man entered who could hardly have been less than six feet six inches in height, with the chest and limbs of a Hercules. His dress was rich with the richness which would, in England, be looked upon as akin to bad taste. He carried a broad brimmed hat in his hand, while he wore across the upper part of her face, extending down past the cheekbones, a black vizard mask, which he had apparently adjusted that very moment, for his hand was still raised to it as he entered.

He had a long, straight chin. His lips were thick and his teeth were pearly white. He had short brown hair and blue colored eyes. The novel was written in an old English dialect. The story was difficult to understand at some points because of the dialect.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle used verbose phrases and gave lengthy descriptions of the characters. He gave more detail to the characters’ descriptions and less attention to the setting in which the story took place: Heavy bands of astrakhan were slashed across his sleeves and fronts of his double-breasted coat, while the deep blue cloak which was thrown over his shoulders was lined with flame- coloured silk and secured at the neck with a brooch which consisted of a single flaming beryl. The setting of the novel was in the same time period in which it was written. This may be why Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote more about the characters and less about the setting. The theme of A Scandal in Bohemia implied that no human is perfect. Many people believed that Sherlock Holmes was the perfect detective and tha the would never lose a case.
This short story proved these people wrong. Sherlock Holmes was able to find out where the pictures were and was able to execute his plan. However, Irene Alder outsmarted Holmes by leaving the house before being caught. Fortunately for both the King of Bohemia and Sherlock Holmes, she found a man that she loved and did not blackmail theKing anymore. If she did not love this man, it is probable that she would still be blackmailing the King and sherlock Holmes would have to begin the case again. A Scandal in Bohemia is a short story that received more attention than any other one written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
It received this attention because Sherlock Holmes, for the first time, is outwitted. Sir Arthur ConanDoyle uses deductive reasoning, which is when reasoning is used to form the most likely conclusion. He also used irony, which is a contrast between the way things seem to be and the way they turn out. Irene Alder thought that SherlockHolmes was injured and had blood running down his face, but he really was just pretending to be hurt and red paint was on his face.
Dwight giving my Winchester away was inconceivable; I left the house and went to talk to Arthur. “Arthur, can you believe that Dwight would make the decision to trade my Winchester for a stupid dog, especially without asking me? On top of that, he lied to my mother once again. There is no way that Dwight will get my Winchester back like he told my mother he would.” “Who knows,” said Arthur, “Maybe ...
