    Redmond's Delicate Question

    The "resurrection" of Sherlock Holmes in this tale has led some scholars to compare it with the story of Easter, others to identify Holmes as a "solar myth". To what degree does our admiration of Sherlock Holmes depend on his similarity to other gods and heroes whose stories are deep in our consciousness? And to what degree does he really resemble them, anyway?
