9781593304812: Ladies, Ladies: The Women in the Life of Sherlock Holmes

The women who visit 221B Baker Street are more than storefront mannequins of their era. These ladies - whether love interests, femmes fatales, or independent career women - faithfully mirror the changes and challengers real women faced in the nearly half century during which the famous detective stories were published. This illuminating and entertaining anthology of original essays, poems, classic British music hall ditties, and insightful pockets of history examines topics ranging from libations to libido, perfumes to prejudice, in the context of the Sherlock Holmes stories. It will delight all explorers through the cultural landscape of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
