Micah Clarke

Micah Clarke

Reads

Micah Clarke by Arthur Conan Doyle. Narrated by the character for whom the title is named and set in the late 1600's, Micah Clarke describes the battle of peasants against the existing king of England in the hopes that they can replace the monarch with his brother who feels he has been unjustly denied the throne. Micah Clarke, a young, innocent peasant joins forces with other peasants, among the Puritans, to fight for this pathetic duke's cause. It was attempt by Conan Doyle to present the story of the Puritans in a more favorable light than generally thought of in England at the time the book was written – a historical romance about the Monmouth rebellion and 'Hanging Judge' Jeffries told by a humble adherent of the Duke of Monmouth – the whole story of the rising in Somerset, the triumphant advance towards Bristol and Bath, and the tragic rout at Sedgemoor (1685).

Sherlock Holmes. Uno studio in rosso - Il segno dei quattro - La valle della paura - Il mastino di Baskerville

Sherlock Holmes. Uno studio in rosso - Il segno dei quattro - La valle della paura - Il mastino di Baskerville

Reads

“Uno studio in rosso” è il primo romanzo che ci ha fatto conoscere l’investigatore privato Sherlock Holmes e il suo amico dottor John H. Watson. È un testo fondamentale nella lettura delle inchieste operate da questo straordinario personaggio perché entrambi i protagonisti ci vengono, per la prima volta, presentati con le loro caratteristiche salienti: Sherlock Holmes maestro nel metodo deduttivo-analitico, mentre il dubbioso dr. Watson suo personale biografo. Ne “Il segno dei quattro” i segreti e misteri in gioco, che provengono persino dalla lontana India, non verranno svelati finché non verrà catturato un uomo con la gamba di legno. “La valle della paura”: per la polizia sembrerebbe un caso irrisolvibile, ma non per Holmes che intuisce dalle sue investigazioni, influenzate dalla lunga mano del terrificante suo nemico prof. James Moriarty, che la realtà non sempre è quella che sembra. “Il mastino dei Baskerville”: è un"inchiesta che sconfina a momenti nel fantastico e nel paranormale. Il romanzo oscilla tra piani colmi di situazioni inaspettate, incubi, misteri coinvolgendo personaggi che nascondono storie segrete correlate con la vicenda della morte di sir Charles Baskerville.
