Serial Killers Australia (3-in-1 True Crime Compendium)
Beside this table, on the wooden chair, sat Dr. Grimseby Roylott, clad in a long grey dressing-gown, his bare ankles protruding beneath, and his feet thrust into red heelless Turkish slippers. Across his lap lay the short stock with the long lash which we had noticed during the day. As we entered he made neither sound nor motion. The safe in which he kept the snake is not even depicted and both scenes appear as quite simply drawn, almost stylised. In The Reigate Squire too, Paget produced a particularly striking illustration, whose dramatic quality is still more visible owing to the revealing faces of the characters depicted Figure Although his black-and-white drawings often keep some sort of balance in contrasting shades of grey, Paget also often resorts to the device of introducing darker shades, particularly in his drawings which depict the arrival or the arrest of the guilty party.
In The Dancing Men Figure 21 , for instance, the suspect at whose head Holmes is pointing a gun is depicted against a dark background although the scene does not take place at night.
In The Empty House , the capture of the criminal is also illustrated through a particularly murky picture, which is also the case in The Six Napoleons Figure Poorly outlined against darker surroundings, adopting artificial or dramatic postures in the most striking scenes, the criminals as depicted by Sidney Paget do seem threatening but also far from us, in a world that does not look exactly like ours.
Through the exclusion of crime out of the social boundaries of what we recognize as our world, through the artificial quality of his illustrations, Paget reinforces the social cohesion that designates criminals as alien to the community. Thus, he transmits to some extent the orthodox Victorian social discourse of repression against crime, by partly repressing its representation. Darkness thus seems to inhabit our world in spite of repression, and hiding it paradoxically becomes the best way of pointing at it.
Paget is here faced with a recurring dilemma concerning detective fiction, i. Through his personal style, the artist comes to terms with this essential ambivalence that is essential to the genre, in so far as detective fiction contains a contradiction between a denotative celebration of law and order and connotations pointing to the endless task of the investigator and the all-pervading presence of crime in society.
As our reading relies largely on the social value of such publications, especially as they were quite widely read in the late nineteenth century, one should wonder about the reactions of readers to that type of illustrations. In other words, the attachment of the reading public was centred on the detective and more precisely on what seemed most personal and eccentric in him; i. This phenomenon was analysed by Walter Benjamin in his famous essay, 12 focussing on photography which appears, it must be noticed, simultaneously with the detective novel , and taken up by Ronald R.
These literary detectives not only represent that class but also secure and safeguard it with the high-power lenses through which they observe the world and convert it into images subject to their expert surveillance. Repeatedly, the technology they embody is focused upon the body of a woman, the representation and possession of which either enables the maintenance or threatens the subversion of established categories of class and gender. Holmes literally becomes someone else in those pictures, which can be interpreted in two opposite ways.
On the one hand, it points to the extremely efficient handling by the detective of some representational technique disguise that enables him to fool his enemies—and the readers—only for the benefit of society. Offering a vision of reality from which we feel estranged, that text registers its own subversive, representational value, while leaving the possibility for the reader to maintain a conservative perspective on the images as instances of social control by the detective.

For further details on Paget and other illustrators of the Sherlock Holmes stories from the viewpoint of editorial history only , see the following works: James Edward Holroyd , p. Before the solution is reached, though, that connection is only implicit but sensed by the reader owing to numerous clues pointing to the danger surrounding the Stapleton couple. On that point, see Ronald R.
See for instance Christopher Clausen and Rosemary Jann. He is extremely tall and thin, his forehead domes out in a white curve, and his two eyes are deeply sunken in his head. He is clean-shaven, pale and ascetic-looking, retaining something of the professor in his features. His shoulders are rounded from much study, and his face protrudes forward, and is forever slowly oscillating from side to side in a curiously reptilian fashion.
