    Redmond's Delicate Question

    While some of the Canonical stories have limpid and memorable plots -- "The Red-Headed League", for example -- others seem complicated and obscure, so that readers can never quite explain what the story is all about. Is this story as extreme an example of obscurity as, say, "Wisteria Lodge", and if so, is that a flaw?
