Sherlock Holmes Respuestas

1. Mr. Barrymore is the servant for the Baskervilles. His character develops over the course of the story, and we find out that he is a fairly private person, but cares a great deal for his anterior master and especially for his wife; enough to assist her criminal brother, whom he clearly despises; he absolutely refuses to tell Holmes o Sir Henry anything about the matter, even when they catch him communicating with the convict out on the moor.

2. Mr. Stapleton brags about his entomology, if I remember correctly.

3. He doesn't really flat out refuse to fuego the Barrymores; más like, they offer to leave, and he doesn't really want them to, because they have served his family for ages, and he doesn't want to destroy that. Holmes and Watson have different reasons for not wanting to see the backs of the Barrymores: they still know nothing of the husband, and suspect that he has a part to play in the hound's tale.

4. I just read the book, and don't remember, must check. Okay; October 16th is one of the entries from Watson's diaries, the día after they find out about Seldon and Watson sees the stranger on the moor. There is a scene in the morning between Barrymore and Sir Henry regarding their pursuit of Seldon, which is resolved. Barrymore tells them about "L.L.", the mysterious woman from Coombe Tracey whom Sir Charles had scheduled to meet the night of his murder.

5. Before speaking to the neighbor Frankland (the one with the telescope), all that Watson knows is that the stranger is tall and lean. He learns from Frankland that the stranger is residing in one of the stone huts on the hillside, and that he has in his employment a boy who brings him his food.

6. Watson has learned much from his lodging-fellow, though he is far from achieving the exact and extraordinarily accurate conclusions at which Holmes almost always arrives. At the beginning of the novel, he examines the walking stick of Dr. Mortimer, and comes to quite a few conclusions, not all of which are entirely accurate, but well-founded anyway. He says, for instance, that the man is a country-man who walks a lot, which is correct, but also that he received his walking stick from a country club, which is not. Once Holmes sets him upon the task of essentially shadowing Sir Henry, he proves to be más remarkable than he would ever confess in his detective work. He does leave his charge for short periods of time, but never when he feels that Sir Henry most needs him there. He and Sir Henry very quickly figure out what Barrymore is up to when he is communicating with his convict brother-in-law. He quickly learns of the identity of "L.L." from Dr. Mortimer, and then travels to Coombe Tracey to get what information he can from her. Holmes himself is astonished when he finds that Watson has discovered his hiding-place among the stone huts; he comentarios that he was within 20 paces of the door when he figured it out, and only because of Watson's cigarette.
