I will talk about the notion of myths and heroes. First of all, I would like to give a quick definition of this concept.  A myth is an old story, popular or folklore, that tells extraordinary events and represents brave heroes. A Hero is an idealized person because he has many qualities and has performed heroic acts that are considered role models. There are two kinds of heroes, fictional heroes like Alice in Wonderland, James Bond and real heroes who live or have lived in our society like Martin Luther King. The hero we're going to see today is the character of sherlock holmes

A nation's identity is shaped by myths that date back to ancient times. Knowing these myths helps us to understand their present. Today, many people like legends, myths, imagining fabulous and fantastic stories, because people prefer to escape the real world by watching fiction movies, reading books with superheroes and putting themselves in the shoes of the main character. For example, Sherlock Holmes, who is a fictional hero, is a famous private detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle and  which was resumed by Anthony Herowitz. In just a few years, this best-seller has become a global myth. For several generations, everybody knows the famous detective with his retort "Elementary my dear Watson". In this sentence he addresses his sidekick Dr. Watson. The most incredible fact of this myth is that a large part of the public believes in the character's true existence even though he was invented from scratch, according to them, the character of Sherlock Holmes actually existed. This character will have many adaptations in the cinema since his first appearance on the big screen in 1903 (nineteen-three).

There are many fictional heroes in literature, it has a great impact on people. They make us dream. Heroes are interpreted in different ways. Today, they can be found on television, in comic strips alongside the greatest superheroes like Batman, Spiderman, Superman, IronMan... they are the most significant heroes. The heroes that each of us wants to be a part of. They wear masks and capes and they want to fight the real crime. It is more or less they who can give people hope or strength.
