This is a place for you to discuss how the themes of discipline and justice appear in the books you are reading. Some people argue that discipline and justice are different things. How are these seen in your reading? How does your character feel? What do they experience? What are your personal thoughts? Don't forget to tell us what book you are reading.

Could you give a little more on that? How does she feel? Is it fair that she is there? How is she handling it?

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
In the first short story collection a common theme is justice. Justice, however is not always the same as discipline. In these stories people's actions and crimes always become known. Many times the characters get what they deserve based on their crimes. Sherlock Holmes often takes into account what act the other characters have committed and their circumstances before deciding on which form of "justice" would be best.

All of the characters in this book are disciplined because they work on submarines and/or are secret agents.

The reason why i used The Sliver Blaze for justice, is for the simple fact that Sherlock had to go and find a murderer and who stole Silver Blaze

Ashley G | 1 comments What i thought about this short story is that there's a lot of investigation to this case. The short story was about how a man named Hosmer Angel went missing and his "friend" Sutherland was worried so she told her stepfather about it and he did not want to talk to the police or any detective which would be Holmes about it. Long story short is that there was a letter that "Angel" had written and Holmes was looking at it then told Mr.windinki to write one and they had the exact same for of writing and typing Holmes came to investigate all of the letters and it showed that Mr.windinki was "Angel". Holmes never told Sutherland because he knew she would be upset.

The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
In this short story Sherlock is looking for a person who stole a priceless gem. At the end of the story Sherlock discovers that the person who committed the crime feel on economic hard times and is suffering from extreme guilt over his action. It is obvious to Sherlock that this person will not commit a crime again, so Sherlock lets him go with the promise that if he commits another crime he will be caught. This is an example of justice being chosen over discipline.
