Defamiliarization is present, and significantly in the scene when Holmes and Watson see Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. It is a natural wonder, which comes with the connotation that it is a beautiful sight. But in this narrative, it comes off as a strange, dangerous atmosphere.

    The Fall of Constantinople in 1453 was a significant turning point in history for both positive and negative reasons.

Lastly, it led to heavy casualties and the destruction of the…
