In these sessions, the course will explore how Conan Doyle uses his writing technique of form and structure in the novel. Also, how imagery is used throughout the novel and we will explore each character in more depth. In each lesson there will be questions and quizzes to help the student retain the knowledge of the course.
During the first week, the lesson will look at the character Sherlock Holmes who can be uncaring to others. However, he is rational and clever. Also, students will look at Dr. John Watson who is loyal, honourable and caring.
In the second week, students will explore the characters of Mary Morstan and Athelney Jones. How Mary is shown as a good Victorian woman. Also, how Athelney is a strong contrast to Sherlock.
