cheekbones, a black vizard mask, which he had apparently adjusted that very moment, for his hand was still raised to it as he entered. He had a long, straight chin. His lips were thick and his teeth were pearlywhite. He had short brown hair and blue colored eyes. The novel was written in an old English dialect. The story was difficult tounderstand at some points because of the dialect. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle usedverbose phrases and gave lengthy descriptions of the characters. He gave moredetail to the characters’ descriptions and less attention to the setting in whichthe story took place: Heavy bands of astrakhan were slashed across his sleeves and fronts of his double-breasted coat, while the deep blue cloak which was thrown over his shoulders was lined with flame- coloured

silk and secured at the neck with a brooch which consisted of a single flaming beryl. The setting of the novel was in the same time period in which it was written.This may be why Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote more about the characters andless about the setting. The theme of A Scandal in Bohemia implied that no human is perfect.Many people believed that Sherlock Holmes was the perfect detective and thathe would never lose a case. This short story proved these people wrong.Sherlock Holmes was able to find out where the pictures were and was able toexecute his plan. However, Irene Alder outsmarted Holmes by leaving thehouse before being caught. Fortunately for both the King of Bohemia andSherlock Holmes, she found a man that she loved and did not blackmail theKing anymore. If she did

not love this man, it is probable that she would still beblackmailing the King and tSherlock Holmes would have to begin the caseagain. A Scandal in Bohemia is a short story that received more attention thanany other one written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It received this attentionbecause Sherlock Holmes, for the first time, is outwitted. Sir Arthur ConanDoyle uses deductive reasoning, which is when reasoning is used to form themost likely conclusion. He also used irony, which is a contrast between the waythings seem to be and the way they turn out. Irene Alder thought that SherlockHolmes was injured and had blood running down his face, but he really was justpretending to be hurt and red paint was on his face.
