"bibliophilic heroes for an age of scientific ambition" (Goulet 50)
"The Holmes stories form the pivot between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the development of the mystery genre, representing the culmination of half a century of experiments and marking out a formula that, for the next hundred years, has been either followed or rejected but never ignored" (Peterson 197)
“Didn’t I tell you so when we started?” cried Sherlock Holmes with a laugh. “That’s the result of all our Study in Scarlet: to get them a testimonial!”

“Never mind,” I answered, “I have all the facts in my journal, and the public shall know them. In the meantime you must make yourself contented by the consciousness of success" (Doyle)
