  1. "She must perforce be man and woman using all her wit and talents to survive" is an important observation. The endurance of Holmes' character is inarguable. "The Woman" figures largely in this one story and has a character which seems more nebulous, and often now relegated to the confines of "femme fatale". While Irene may represent an enduring feminine ideal to Holmes in a masculine view, she may also represent a complex and dubious/enviable role model to women. The overt or sometimes subconscious need to study men and learn to move in their world was understood by Irene and is understood by ambitious women of today (#Sherlock - "I make my way in the world"). It is remarkable that Arthur Conan Doyle was sensitive to this idea even in his time.
