Sign of Four Key Quotes

This is a short post sharing a really useful, important resource.

Remember, for a closed book exam, you will need to make sure you have a number of quotes at your disposal to discuss all the themes and characters in The Sign of the Four.

The document below can help you do this. It might be useful to decide a specific character or theme you would like to revise, then select quotations from the document to help make a revision resource, such as a mind-map, an essay plan or flashcards. Remember, knowing quotations is not enough on it’s own. You also need to know:

  • What the quotation is linked to. Who says it? To Who? At what part of the novel?
  • How the quotations works. What are the interesting words? What techniques (if any) is Doyle using?
  • Why Doyle has chosen the specific line. What is the wider point? What is being revealed about the significance of certain characters, themes, or ideas?
