Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tale, The Hound of the Baskervilles, may quite possibly be the most popular of all the Sherlock Holmes stories. Holmes and Watson fall into the employ of Sir Henry Baskerville, heir to the great Baskerville fortune. However, Baskerville's wealth comes under a strange circumstance and even stranger family past, with a macabre tale involving a hellish ancestor and a maniacal demon-dog. Being stout of heart and mind, Watson and Holmes must find the truth about the legend - is it a fairy tale, or does the Baskerville family indeed have a bloodthirsty hellhound shadowing their lives? Doyle masterfully writes the tale in the setting of the moor, swamp like and barren, which provides a backdrop of chilling shadows and mysterious undertones. The story quickly escalates beyond mere fancy as Watson finds himself doing more detective work than he bargained for. The story first appeared in The Strand as The Hound of the Baskervilles-Another Adventure of Sherlock Holmes in a series of monthly installments, published between August 1901 and April 1902.

Synopsis:

In this, one of the most famous of Doyle's mysteries, the tale of an ancient curse and a savage ghostly hound comes frighteningly to life. The gray towers of Baskerville Hall and the wild open country of Dartmoor will haunt the reader as Holmes and Watson seek to unravel the many secrets of the misty English bogs.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
