The Adventure of the Speckled Band


Generated by

As my favorite Sherlock Holmes story of all time, seeing key words visualized in a word cloud helped me to focus on some key points that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was trying to make. I found that many words in this word cloud appeared to be very grim, (i.e Death) and it is often easy to forget the grim nature of this story. Word clouds are an incredible tool in completely understanding the way a work is written.
