Henry is a very literate person, well grounded in world literature. And eclectic, witness this from p. 9:
I ran my eyes over his bookshelves full of biographies of composers. There were the collected works of Shakespeare, espionage thrillers, and poetry. The collected works of Carl Jung was right there with them.Smiley I suspect was widely read, Sherlock not so much. He just read in detail things that would be of use to him: cigarette ashes, crime, poisons, etc.
Orlando Cole was an avid reader. He had read a lot despite, maybe because of, not having much formal education beyond high school. I suspect you get that intellectual curiosity when you confront the musical creations of the last 400 years of history.
What do you think? I'd like to know. Post a comment.
