Essay Topic 2

The hound of legend is wholly a creature from the moors. In fact, throughout the novel, it seems as if the characters (as depicted by Watson) are constantly battling the elements of the moor and how it makes them feel, from the weather to the landmarks to the hound itself. Discuss in detail how the characters are set against the moor and what it means to the story. Be sure to give strong examples and explain them thoroughly.

Essay Topic 3

Laura Lyons, Mrs. Stapleton, and Mrs. Barrymore all have contentious relationships with men in their lives (Stapleton and Selden, respectively). Discuss their relationships and how they reflect upon their characters. Additionally, discuss whether the author is making a statement about the dependability of these women or how they are dependent upon the men.
