About Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle (May 22, 1859 - July 7, 1930) was a Scottish physician and writer, most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, which are generally considered a major innovation in the field of crime fiction. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction. English author H. G. Wells is best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing text books and rules for war games. He was born on September 21, 1866 and died on August 13, 1946. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 - January 14, 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon, and photographer. His most famous writings are "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and its sequel "Through the Looking-Glass, " as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky," all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word-play, logic, and fantasy. Born December 16, 1775, Jane Austen is one of the most celebrated authors of the English language. Her fiction is known for its witty satires on English society. Austen wrote anonymously during her life and wasn't widely recognized as a great English writer until after her death in 1817. Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm collected and published Germanic and European folk and fairy tales during the early to mid 19th century. Some of the world's most classic and beloved stories have been published by them, including "Rumplestiltskin," "Snow White," "Sleeping Beauty," "Rapunzel," "Cinderella," "Hansel and Gretel," and many more. Born on January 19, 1809, Edgar Allan Poe has become synonymous with writing described as mysterious and macabre. Also credited with originating the detective-fiction genre, Poe is considered part of the American Romantic movement. A very celebrated poet, short story writer, and Gothic novelist, Poe died in 1849. French writer Jules Verne (February 8, 1828 - March 24, 1905) pioneered the science fiction literary genre. He published many plays, essays, short stories, and poems during his lifetime, but is best known for "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea," "Around the World in 80 Days," and "A Journey to the Center of the Earth." Today, he is one of the most translated authors in the world.
