New Look at a Classic – The Adventures if Sherlock Holmes

It is sensational to take  a new look at an old classic like  “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.”  The expression, “It is elementary, my dear Watson,” is quite popular. It is a quick way to sum up the notion that  an idea, thought or concept is simple  and easily understood. Easily understood that is if one is well read, experienced  and well learned.

I missed the last part  of the expression when I first read it  many years ago. Many things  were simple aka elementary  to Holmes that were not elementary  to Watson. Watson was trained as a medical doctor and was an intelligent man in his own right. Holmes was observant and continued to study a vast number of things and educate  himself throughout his life. As a result, he had a  large body of knowledge. This made many things completely unknown to most people, elementary to Holmes.
