Romanticism Comparing

Snap!Watson steps on the twig, but the mysterious figure does not seem to hear.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles is an excellent example of a Romantic novel because it shows that nature is kind, the settings are obscure and it shows how emotions affect a Romantic novel.The Hound of the Baskervilles is about a "murder case" of Sir Charles Baskerville.Detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Watson are asked to solve the very mysterious murder.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle creates a handful of characters in this novel who are very familiar with nature.One of these characters is a suspect, his name is Mr. Stapleton."A tin box for botanical specimens [hangs] over his shoulder and he [carries] a green butterfly net in one of his hands" (Doyle 90).Mr. Stapleton is so devoted to nature and the specimens that live around him, he takes it so far that anyone that crosses his path would hear a long explanation about botanical specimens.Stapleton also has a sister or wife and he teaches her how to love nature as much as he does."My sister is as devoted to Nature as I am" (102).Also many incidents in the novel that the other characters show their devotion to nature."Since the tragedy, Mr. Holmes, there [has] come to my ears several incidents which are hard to reconcile with the settled order of nature" (30).Nature also helps Mr. Sherlock Holmes in solving his murder case."As it [seems] to me, for Nature to throw before the carriage of the returning heir of the Baskervilles" (77).Nature plays a big part in a Romantic novel because it shows that it helps the people who are kind to it.Examples from the book will help you understand how this novel is an excellent example of a Romantic novel.Nature was not the only thing Doyle writes about.
Romantic novels must have obscure settings.Obscure settings are usually different from other novels…
