Republicanism, regicide and "The Musgrave Ritual"

Richard Jacobs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A reading of the Sherlock Holmes story that suggests the presence of a repressed engagement with the traumatic events of the English civil war and the execution of Charles 1. The editing out from history of these events is an act of forgetting that is recovered in the story's impulse to detect, retrace and recuperate.
