RLS & ACD

前阵子唉声叹气地说摊开好几本书,现在都渐渐地被我消灭掉了,只剩下Weir of Hermiston还在拖拖拉拉地读,不过也快了。

今天看见书里有一段讽刺法律系学生自以为是的话(RLS自己念过两天法律系):
... like many young men coming to the Bar, ... he flattered himself he was a fellow of unusual quickness and penetration. They knew nothing of Sherlock Holmes in those days, but there was a good deal said of Talleyrand.

我吐血。RLS果然也是福迷呀。我找不到RLS和ACD两人在伦敦或爱丁堡认识的证据,但是RLS给ACD写过信,ACD记在心里,这件事是确有记载的。写Hermiston的时候(1896),RLS已经在南洋住了挺久的,不过显然没妨碍他追迷福尔摩斯小说!
