    One thought on “L'affaire du chien des Baskerville”

    1. With such an ambitious, and in some aspects arrogant, title Pierre Bayard was always going to have to write a very convincing analysis Which in my opinion he managed to do while also throwing in a hint of literary criticism of a type I had not paid attention to as of yet And while such things appeared at first disconnected from his analysis he managed to pull everything back together by the end to throw the entire case on its head Bayard for the first half of the book begins with a recap of past [...]

    2. Holmes war ein blutiger Anf ngerWirklich faszinierend Die Aufz hlung so vieler Fehler, die Holmes im Laufe seiner Ermittlungen gemacht hat Kaum zu glauben, dass so jemand einen solchen Ruf haben kann Aber Holmes Macken berspielen seine Inkompetenz grandios, das muss man ihm zugestehen.Wie bei vielen B chern Bayards gibt es Missverst ndnisse viele Leser meinen, dass es Bayard darum gehe, Holmes oder Conan Doyle in Misskredit zu bringen, aus Neid, Arroganz, Besserwisserei oder sonst einem niederen [...]

    3. I m going to chalk much of my distaste for this book due to bad translation The flow of language is terrible, making this a difficult read for me from the start.Another large part of my distaste is the sheer arrogance of the author that drips from every page Holmes was arrogant, too, but his was derived from his success in solving problems where others where having trouble discerning the mere existence of an issue Holmes also showed a humble side numerous times Pierre Bayard exemplifies the ste [...]

    4. I can t quite decide if this is a perfect example of tongue in cheek meta criticism, or a nutty rereading padded with chapters of justification that essentially sum up to It s my opinion, so it can t be wrong I suggest skipping to the last chapter and just enjoying Bayard s reworking of the plot, which isn t without its own gaping holes but is somewhat satisfying than the solution in the original.

    5. Sadly, this is not a very amusing read Unlike The Physics of Superheroes , a book with a similar idea of applying real world reasoning to a world of fiction, this book takes itself a bit too seriously I will say however that when Bayard s version of the crime was fleshed out in the final chapters I could not disagree with his findings Annoying as it is, his theory does make a lot of sense.That having been said, his overall reasoning is flawed at best He makes assumptions based apparently solely [...]

    6. This slim volume takes a clever idea re solving the mystery of the House of the Baskervilles and pads it out in an attempt to be able to justify the idea being presented as a full book instead of a single essay Bayard expounds on literary theories of whether or not fictional characters can do things without the author knowing handled pretentiously here much cleverly done in the fictional universes of Jasper Fforde , he has a tediously long chapter on whether or not Sherlock Holmes makes mistake [...]

    7. Part literary criticism and fiction theory and part a dissection of Holmes deductions While the author has some plausible reasoning for who the real murderer was, he neglects explaining a major clue involving the ancestry of the novel s victims and killer which renders his argument insufficient While readers interested primarily interested in the analysis of HOUNd might find the literary criticism and fiction theory tedious and irrelevant, I found in them new ideas for exploring literarature As [...]

    8. Well thought out argument and actually had answers for some issues that had bothered me when I read The Hound of the Baskervilles Fun insightful and thoughtful read.

    9. In preparation for Pierre Bayard s Sherlock Holmes Was Wrong I returned to my childhood favorite reading Granted, the Hound has never been my favorite Holmes story, but I found it to be a fun, exciting, and an interesting read The story is steeped in the gothic tradition with the large estate, deadly moor, oppressive fog, and desolate landscape Doyle succeeds in creating a character out of the landscape in a way that Willa Cather s does and you try fitting those two in the senetence The ending s [...]

    10. A short book with a thin premiseThis is a short book It would be even shorter without the first 30 pages or so, which consists of a lengthy but well written summary of The Hound of the Baskervilles While this recap is not really necessary to the audience for this book for how many people would care to read this book without having first read the original it may serve useful for readers wishing to refresh their memories of the novel I had just read The Hound and I read it, although I did not know [...]

    11. First, to get out of the way the least interesting part of this book yes, Bayard makes a convincing case that the great detective was wrong in nearly every detail in his most famous case.Second, some suggested prerequisites to get the full understanding and enjoyment from Bayard s seemingly contrarian reading Bayard s slim volume How to Talk About Books You Haven t Read, where he first presents his argument that books have a life beyond the written page Each reader brings to a book their own inn [...]

    12. The idea that Sherlock Holmes might be wrong is a little like the idea that the king of France is bald.Bayard plays the game all mystery readers play, testing the theories against the evidence, and the game most readers play, testing the solution revealed by the detective against the evidence So far, nothing too unusual Is Templeteton s strategy for enriching himself improbable, far fetched, and likely to fail Absolutely Where he is, um, original, is where he suggests that Templeton therefore is [...]

    13. Pierre Bayard reads The Hound of the Baskervilles, and comes to the same conclusion many other readers have In this particular case, Sherlock Holmes was wrong.This is a work of slightly tongue in cheek, very French literary criticism As such, it s not for everyone This isn t a fault in the book, but simply a matter of taste.Bayard begins with an explanation of what he calls detective criticism, and a recap of the events of The Hound of the Baskervilles This is the preliminary to analyzing the wi [...]

    14. This was a terribly written book, but I will chalk that up to translation issues, as it was written in French More importantly, the first 2 3s of the book is useless navelgazing of the worst kind Do characters in books come to life and cause real harm in the real world Of course not, you git.The final 1 3 of the book is another indictment against Holmes solution of the HotB Unfortunately, Bayard does not stick on target and spends a lot of time discussing Holmes relationship to ACD However, he c [...]

    15. Siete convinti che nell Amleto l assassino sia Claudio Allora non avete letto bene il testo della tragedia, e vi siete limitati a seguire pedissequamente quanto affermato da Shakespeare senza notare le incongruenze messe nero su bianco nel testo della tragedia Pierre Bayard si occupa di critica poliziesca, cio di rileggere i libri gialli e fare nuove ipotesi che siano pi rispettose del testo In questo caso il libro messo sotto torchio lo sherlockiano Il mastino dei Baskerville Dopo un breve rias [...]

    16. The author spoils not one, but two entirely unrelated Agatha Christie books in this text without warning, so if you still want to read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Towards Zero, maybe give this a miss I hadn t read the latter yet, so merci for that.The actual point of this book what if someone else was the murderer would have taken about 15 pages Unfortunately it has 200, during which the author goes and on about how his solution is the correct one, that the reader who accepts what an author [...]

    17. A glowing beast stocks what is supposed to be the last of the rich and influential Baskerville family At least two men seem to have been killed on the cold and desolate English moor by the bloody hound All hopes for the future of the young Baskerville rest on the cunning of the world s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes But did he get his conclusion all wrong Did the real murderer go free According to French literature professor, Pierre Bayard, not only did Holmes make numerous mistakes, Art [...]

    18. One of the most interesting books I ve read this year Bayard introduced me to a lot of new concepts like character emmigration immigration, detective criticism, and some of Doyle s thoughts about Holmes And the symmetry between Hugo Baskerville s murder and Bayard s solution was very Ooooh I did have a problem with Bayard saying that Holmes deductions were wrong, when Bayard wasn t actually present at the investigation All the information Bayard has to go off of is from Watson s supposedly flawe [...]

    19. For years Pierre Bayard, Literature teacher and shrink, has been carrying on what he called himself une critique polici re which is literary critic applied to detective novels.According to him, when it comes to the case of the hound of the Baskervilles, Sherlock Holmes got it all wrong so Pierre Bayard leads a counter investigation while writing an essay on literature This book is an exercice in style of exegesis and critic brilliantly accomplished by an Academic who fights with the text, so it [...]

    20. Bayard begins with a very pedestrian exposition of the plot of The Hound of the Baskervilles As a Conan Doyle enthusiast, I found this a bit irritating Now I understand Bayard s reasons he needed to strip the novel of its wonderful atmosphere, its poetry Bayard undoes Conan Doyle s work, he de writes the novel Why To expose the workings of the plot, the shoddiness of Holmes s deductions and the improbability of the supposed solution to the mystery And why would a writer of Conan Doyle s caliber [...]

    21. Really a 3.5 starI ll elect to describe this book with a professor s comment from one of my C art history term papers, Interesting theoretical paper Bayard provides some valid holes in the case, some of which may have already been noticeable to careful readers of the original and others quite unexpected However, his own case is susceptible to the same skepticism he applies to Holmes construct The book is worth reading for the beginning, where he talks about understanding life from a given perspe [...]

    22. Literary critic Bayard creates a new approach to reading classical or any kind of literature which he coins detective criticism This reading of a text is not simply content to declare that Oedipus really didn t kill his father or that Claudius wasn t really the king s killer, but it sets out to prove who really is responsible for the deed By observing disparities in a novel e.g there was than one person on the road with Oedipus who could have done the deed or that observations made by Holmes in [...]

    23. While this short literary study is not as profound as How to Talk About Books You Haven t Read, Pierre Bayard once again demonstrates that playfulness and seriousness are not opposites Bayard explains how Conan Doyle s disgust with Sherlock Holmes caused Doyle to take revenge on Holmes by having Holmes incorrectly solve the mystery of the Hound of the Baskervilles Bayard offers an alternative solution while I wasn t convinced, it didn t seem any less convincing that Holmes original solution.Baya [...]

    24. An arousing premise of reopening a fictional detective case The literary theory that follows is curious but not especially compelling or rigorous The author refers to Thomas Pavel s analysis in Fictional Worlds of the so called segregationist and integrationist views of fiction and non fiction in other words, he asks whether fiction and non fiction are entirely separate realms or whether there is a permeable membrane between truth and fiction The author takes the integrationist side, arguing in [...]

    25. The author s analysis is very intriguing He is either very serious about the fuzzy area between fiction and reality, or he is taking the idea of serious scholarship about literature for a ride I can t tell.but the portion of the book where he analyzes Holmes solution to the Hound of the Baskervilles is top notch His solution is much satisfying than the ending from Doyle, and his reasoning is quite sound Highly recommended for Holmes fans and anyone else who enjoys mysteries One requirement read [...]

    26. Pleasantly written in translation , but loosely reasoned Bayard is successful in revealing possible flaws in Holmes s conclusions than he is in concocting plausible alternatives Also, some of the textual clues cited by the author exist only in the French translations of the novel, not the English original, and should therefore be discounted.Bayard s detective criticism is an interesting literary exercise, but I suspect that it lends itself to exactly the fault with which he credits Holmes seein [...]

    27. Bayard s case lending an autonomous will to literary characters is so ridiculous, but so well argued that as I read this book I was again and again certain that he MUST be joking and again and again supplied with mostly plausible arguments More than legitimate autonomy on the part of the author s creation, the author claims that through the subjective closure provided by individual readers, the spaces in the necessarily incomplete universe of a work of fiction can be filled in such a way as to f [...]

    28. On picking up the book, I thought it would be an outrageous and preposterous take on this mystery classic But after finishing the work, I found it to be much credible than I would have imagined Especially intriguing was Bayard s criticism of the flaws in Holmes s deductions On my reading of The Hound of the Baskervilles, I didn t notice any of Bayard s points But after hearing Bayard s critique, my reaction was Hmm I don t know how I missed that Or Yes, I agree That doesn t make much sense As f [...]

    29. A very strange book There s a real problem here, folks This fellow goes to great length to identify the real murderer in the Conan Doyle classic and torpedo the alleged genius of Sherlock Holmes Whether or not his case is persuasive and it is, within the bounds he s set for detective criticism and Conan Doyle s presumptive attitude towards his literary creation , this is at the end of the day a book about a FICTIONAL character Does it really matter who the murderer might be Can t we appreciate t [...]

    30. It s a slender volume with lots of padding blank pages, lists of characters, a bit of fanciful prose to start off so don t expect a lot of detail.I got a bit annoyed with the author in a few places for his obvious attempts to build suspense by not revealing who he thought was the real killer, even when this required some grammatical acrobatics as he discussed his analysis The bulk of the book is a justification for this sort of literary criticism, resting on the idea that characters become indep [...]
