Answer these questions in full sentences 1.Find one way in which the weather reflects characters emotions in this chapter. 2.How does Stevenson hint that the expression on Dr Jekylls face terrifies Enfield and Utterson? 3.What similarities can you find between the mens reaction to this incident and their reaction to Mr Hyde?
Some Final Discussion Points… This is a short chapter but represents a key scene. Why? The answer to this question should be along the lines of – the reader is now fully aware that Jekylls house (at the front) contrasts with Hydes dilapidated entrance at the back.
Read the following section again: But the words were hardly uttered, before a smile was struck out of his face and succeeded by an expression of such abject terror as froze the very blood of the two gentlemen below. What has happened here? Dr Jekyll appears to have taken on some of Hydes traits here. Both men stood below have witnessed the duality of a persons nature – good and evil. Their response to this occurrence leaves them both pale with an answering horror in their eyes.
Dr. Jekyll lives in a respectable home, described by Stevenson as having a great air of wealth and comfort. His laboratory is described as a certain sinister block of building … [which] bore in every feature the marks of profound and sordid negligence. With its decaying facade and air of neglect, the laboratory quite neatly symbolizes the corrupt and perverse Hyde. Correspondingly, the respectable, prosperous-looking main house symbolizes the respectable, upright Jekyll. The connection between the buildings also reflects the connection between the personas they represent. The buildings are adjoined but look out on two different streets. Because of the complicated layout of the streets in the area, the casual observer cannot detect that the structures are two parts of a whole, just as he or she would be unable to detect the relationship between Jekyll and Hyde. How is Dr Jekylls house and laboratory situated so as to suggest a symbolic significance to their arrangement?
