Discussion Notes: Silver Blaze
Find this week’s story here: Silver Blaze by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Next week’s story: The Looking Glass by Anton Chekhov.
Maya couldn’t join us this week, but Gerald is finally back from his vacation!
This week Gerald, Anais, and Rammy discuss a Sherlock Holmes classic mystery. While all three hosts enjoyed the story, they found it difficult to analyze the story for depth beyond the mystery. Anais realized that the story represented a game that people have always enjoyed: riddles. Meanwhile Rammy dug into the story’s prose and questioned the grammar of English phrases. As for Gerald, the story served as a palette cleanser from the heavier themes of literary dramas.
Did any of the hosts solve the mystery before the big reveal at the end? Listen and find out!
