Sherlock Holmes– The novel’s protagonist. Holmes is the famed 221b Baker Street detective with a keen eye, hawked nose, and the trademark hat and pipe. Holmes is observation and intuition personified , and though he takes a bit of a back seat to watson in this story , we always feel his presence. It takes his legendary powers to decipher the mystifying threads of the case.

Holmes secret plan comes to fruition when a guileless sir Henry heads home across the moor, only to be attacked by the hound . Hindered by a thick fog and Sheer Fright , Holmes and Watson nonetheless shoot the beast and solve the mystery.

Hound’s focus on the natural and supernatural spills over into other thematic territory-the rigid classism of Doyle’s milieu. Well -to-do intellectual that he was, Doyle translated many of assumptions of turn-of-the-century English society into his fiction.The natural and Supernatural is one example.

Throughtout the story, the superstitions of the shapeless mass of common folk-everyone attributes an unbending faith in the curse to the commoners-are denigrated and often,dismissed.If Mortimer and Sir Henry have their doubts, it is the gullible common  folk who take the curse seriously.In the end , when Watson’s reportage and Holmes insight have shed light on the situation , the curse and the commoners who believed it  end up looking silly.
