Doyle is best remembered as the author who introduced the world to one of the most enduring characters in literary history through his many tales of Sherlock Holmes. However, he is also responsible for much of the fascination with prehistoric fantasy so pervasive in film today. His novel The Lost World was the inspiration for the pioneering dinosaur film of the same name in 1925. Now Doyle's unabridged original vision set down in prose has been made accessible to readers of all levels in this annotated Thornes Classic edition. It provides the reader with an intelligent commentary on the narrative of the story and illuminates the author's intentions and motives for writing what he did. It is an indispensable study guide to help students understand what they have read for exam and essay preparation.
