Tired of his hero, Arthur Conan Doyle threw him over. But then literary figures — who had dismissed the Holmes stories as trivial diversions — unexpectedly woke to the depth and intelligence of the writing. Also, the outcry from the public was deafening. People just would not let Holmes die. So Doyle had to bring him back. Other writers have tried this: see the Death of Superman, etc. What do we think about all this? Where do our sympathies lie? Are revived characters less interesting afterward, or more?
