Transcript of Case of Identity- Sherlock Holmes

Case Of Identity Plot: Setting: Characters: This Story is both External, and Internal when it comes to conflict.

Internal- Person vs. Self
Since Mr. Windibank had multiple identities he basically had to hide from his peers

External- Person vs. Society
Mr. Windibank did not want his step-daughter leaving his "family circle", and creating her own. Therefore he created a false identity to keep other men away from her. In otherwords, He was trying to protect Ms. Sutherland in his own way.
- Person vs. Person
Mr. Windibank was confronted by Sherlock Holmes for being an imposter. Types of Conflicts: Exposition (opening situation):

- Holmes want to find the location of Hosmer.
- Miss. Sutherland explains that she had met Mr. Hosmer at a ball while her step-father was in France.
- Angel insists that Sutherland should marry him before his stepfather comes back, and makes her swear on the Bible that she will always be true to him.
- Sutherland and Angel are both concerned about the stepfather's negative view of women stepping out with guys outside their family circles.
- Miss. Sutherland is angry with her step-father Mr. Windibank and mother, as they don't find the importance of finding Mr. Hosmer Angel.

Final Outcome:
- Mr. Windibank storms off down the street
- Holmes Decided not to tell Ms. Sutherland about her step-father and his disguise. Where?
- Sherlock Holmes office
- "the old'n days" approximately 1860 -Sherlock Holmes: flat/ protagonist
-Mr. Watson: flat
-Miss. Sutherland: round because it was her fiance who suddenly disappeared
-Mr. Windibank: round because he turned out to be guilty for the entire mystery/ antagonist
-Mr. Hosmer Angel: round as he was the impersonator and turned out to be Mr. Windibank Character Analysis' : Sherlock Holmes: is motivated by the thrill of solving a mystery and catching the criminal.
Mr. Windibank: his actions and motivations are based on his desire to protect his family. Atmosphere: Tone:
Mysterious Style Diction:
"life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent." (Doyle 57) Sentence Structure:
"'...slate-coloured, broad-brimmed, straw hat, with a feather of a brickish red.'"... (Doyle 68) Point of View:
through the perspective of Mr. Watson (first person)
" As he spoke there was a tap on the door, and the boy in buttons entered to announce Miss Mary Sutherland, while the lady herself loomed behind his small black figure." (Doyle 60) Irony: It's ironic that Miss Sutherland falls in love with her step father, thinking that it's Mr. Hosmer Angel.
"'he said that when I wrote them they seemed to come from me but when they were typewritten he always felt that the machine had come between us. That will show you how fond he was of me.'" (Doyle 64) This quote shows how in love she had fallen, but yet completely dumbfounded on whom Hosmer truly was. Moral: The truth always comes out. "'You see all these isolated facts, together with many minor ones, all pointed in the same direction.'" (Doyle 77) This shows that Holmes was able to solve the mystery and Mr. Windibank, as hard as he may have tried, was not able to keep his secret for long.
