¿De qué se trata este título?

Yet all who knew him will realise the difficulty of making such a record. His penetrating insight and his perfect humour played for preference always with people, not with things, and a good part of his letters, if it were published so as to be under stood, would have to be accompanied with a whole Targum of footnotes, of intolerable dreariness. Of literary remains he himself regrets, as will be seen, that he has left practically nothing. When he was called upon to write (for example) a paper for a society at Oxford, he would always put off the evil day till the last moment, and dash off what was in the circumstances a brilliant performance without leaving anything for posterity to cherish. He had a genius for relating means to ends, for doing just so much work as was required to gain this scholar ship, for making just so much impression as was required to consolidate this acquaintanceship; and his whole life (i think) was mapped out on a plan which involved the acquisition of an assured position in the world before he began to toy with literature.

Acerca de Ronald Knox

It was Ronald Knox, who, as a pioneer of Golden Age detective fiction, codified the rules of the genre in his ‘Ten Commandments of Detection’, which stipulated, among other rules, that ‘No Chinaman must figure in the story’, and ‘Not more than one secret room or passage is allowable’. He was a Sherlock Holmes aficionado, writing a satirical essay that was read by Arthur Conan Doyle himself, and is credited with creating the notion of ‘Sherlockian studies’, which treats Sherlock Holmes as a real-life character. Educated at Eton and Oxford, Knox was ordained as priest in the Church of England but later entered the Roman Catholic Church. He completed the first Roman Catholic translation of the Bible into English for more than 350 years, and wrote detective stories in order to supplement the modest stipend of his Oxford Chaplaincy.
