Worldview Guide for Sherlock Holmes


Worldview Guides

"Sherlock’s deductive prowess (whether imitated or not) is intriguing, but other aspects of Doyle’s handling encouraged Holmes’s great commercial success. One reason is that mankind derives endless fascination from the detective genre, perhaps because the present state of our existence centers on a kind of criminal event that occurred bygone ages ago in a garden called Eden. Since that fateful fruit selection, man’s life is inextricably bound up with sorting out the precise details and implications
of this or that deception or crime." -From Marcus Schwager's guide

Look Inside the Guide

The Worldview Guides from the Canon Classics Literature Series provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. Each Worldview Guide presents the big picture (both the good and the bad) without neglecting the details. Each Worldview Guide is a friendly literary coachand a treasure map, and a compass, and a keyto help teachers, parents, and students appreciate, critique, and begin to master the classics.

The bite-size WGs are divided into these ten sections (with some variation due to genre): Introduction, The World Around, About the Author, What Other Notables Said, Setting, Characters, & Argument, Worldview Analysis, Quotables, 21 Significant Questions & Answers, and Further Discussion & Review.

A free classics test and answer key are also available here.
