“How blind and unreasoning and arbitrary are some of the laws of nature – the most of them, in fact!”

― Mark Twain, The Double-Barrelled Detective

 

Mark Twain was one of the most popular and beloved American authors of the 19th-century. His works have become a mainstay in American literature, creating characters such as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. By the end of 1800s, British author Arthur Conan Doyle created a famous detective character Sherlock Holmes, of whom Twain was quite fond. Twain developed his own parodic version of Holmes in his book ‘A Double Barrelled Detective Story” which was first published in 1902. Twain puts Sherlock Holmes in the United States and creates a satirical world for him to discover.
