This project analyzes the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel The Hound of the Baskervilles. In doing so, the goal was to discover whether or not the character of Sherlock Holmes could be considered a heroic figure or not. So what is a hero exactly? There are many heroic archetypes and many ideas that society as a whole agrees upon for what a hero should look like. Each individual even has a set of requirements based on their previous experience with heroic figures in movies and books. Analyzing the Conan Doyle novel allows the audience to better see how Sherlock Holmes could (or could not) fit into these ideals that have been created.
