The Hound of the Baskervilles is one of the most famous holmesian stories. Of course, there are many reasons for this extraordinary success, an immediate, lasting and worldwide success. Above all, the publishing and circulation methods of this novel are representative of the twentieth-century media tic culture. Indeed, the novel takes place in a serial process, previously elaborate (the first Holmesian narrative was published in 1887), offering both Holmesian tradition and innovation in its poetic. Arthur Conan Doyle pursues the process of mythification for Sherlock Holmes as a hero. The Hound of the Baskervilles is the most transposed of all the Holmesian stories: origin and result at a time of this durable success.
