First Post!

Posted by sasha in Uncategorized

Hi everyone~! How’s everyone doing on our first Web Wednesday? I’m having technical difficulties… Anyway, I’m really excited for us to start working on our short stories! I picked a kind of wet, cobblestoney English theme, because I was hoping to do some Sherlock Holmes! I had it mind since I took a look at the syllabus, and then bam! It’s in the list of short stories online. I hope it’s Englishy enough to do. : ) (Can you imagine with me, that Sherlock Holmes is looking for little details on the sidewalk in the banner?)

Listed are a couple of Sherlock stories, A Case of Identity, A Scandal in Bohemia, and the Red-Headed League where I think ginger-haired people are the bad guys of the story? Even though these stories were once only for entertainment and came in pulp magazines, I think they do have a lot of literary value. People study Sir Arthur Conan Doyle religiously, and some people even think Holmes was a real man… and even though the author himself didn’t think Holmes was a worthy subject to write about and preferred to write about history… I really love to read detective stories because of his work.

If Sherlock Holmes isn’t the right choice, I wouldn’t mind going for some Fitzgerald. His short story, “The Ice Palace” is really haunting, I think, and it’s timely, I think. I have a ton to say about Fitzgerald’s work. He’s definitely my favorite author. I’ll have to hunt, though, for something I haven’t read by him as yet…

Thanks for reading, everyone!

    Sherlock Holmes was a real person! [according to me] lol. I love it, looking into things that people looked over. Awesome! Can’t wait to see what kinds of literary delicacies you find…Mrs. Sherlock Holmes

    Stay Strong while solving your mysteries! =]

    I think you should definitely go with a Sherlock Holmes tale. Someone else is doing the Speckled Band (I think that’s it), so maybe you could pick a different one.
