Remarkable Incident of Dr Lanyon The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Summary Notes Hyde has disappeared without trace. The past and acquaintances of Hyde show his sinister side. Jekyll has been an active member of the community for two months – almost balancing the evil of Hyde with his actions. The importance of facial descriptions – Jekyll’s face is “open” and “brighten[s]”. Contrast of description of Lanyon – facial description the key again.
Summary Notes Lanyon, it would appear, has been frightened to death. Complete break down in Jekyll’s friendships. Jekyll’s door is now shut – like Hyde’s – he is now going his “own dark way” and is paying for his sins with suffering. Secrecy again appears in the form of Lanyon’s letter to Utterson. Utterson shows his Victorian honour and decency by not opening the letter. Secrecy in the reappearance of the `disappearance` caveat.
