The Hound Of The Baskervilles
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes was being conveyed as a very clever person and he is mindful of every that is going on. Furthermore, he can be described as conceited and he isn't that sensitive of other people's feelings. This can be proved when he said, "I am afraid, my dear Watson, that most of your conclusion was erroneous...( page 5)." This shows that he isn't that sensitive of other people's feelings because just right before he said that, he was telling Watson that he was on the right track, but then he said that all his conclusions was wrong. Furthermore, the way he said it makes Watson feel that he is never as good as Holmes himself.
Conflicts and Settings
As the story goes on, Holmes and Watson encountered a man names Mr. Jack Stapleton. Although at first he seems to be just an ordinary person but as the story developed, Watson finds Stapleton strange since Stapleton knew that Sherlock Holmes was looking into the death of Sir. Charles. Watson was shocked by this since Stapleton knew about almost everything that is going on in the case. So Watson was always very careful of what he say in front of Stapleton.
In the end of the story, Holmes and Watson solve the case by knowing that Stapleton was behind of all these conflicts and he was actually a Baskerville himself. Stapleton killed Sir. Charles and tried to killed Henry since he found out that Baskervilles has a large inheritance and he is in line for it. So if he kills every member of the Baskervilles then he'll be able to get all the fortunes. But at the end his plan didn't work out since Holmes broke the case and revealed his identity. Due to this Stapleton ran for his life and actually died. However his body was never found.
