The 'Other' Side of London: The Roles of the Orient in the City of Sherlock Holmes

Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on the city of London as it is presented in three Sherlock Holmes stories, and how its society is changed by the Other. The Other here refers to a product or person which has origins in the Orient, as the term is defined by Edward W. Said in his Orientalism. It is quite clear that the Other influences the plots and characters, and the claim of this essay is that the Oriental Other is a negative influence in the three analyzed stories, since the issues that are depicted in the stories would not have existed without the Other. The stories that are analyzed are A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four and The Man with the Twisted Lip, in that order.
