Jekyll and Hyde

 

Extension Activity

 

If you have finished all your autobiography pieces and checked them carefully for errors, please print them out or email them to me:  mark.tranter@winsfordacademy.org.uk

Then I would like you to do some research on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The wikipedia page is a good starting point.

In your books I would like you to make some notes ready for our next lesson.

 

 

Here are the topics that I think are particularly interesting:

  •  How Stevenson wrote the book. This page has an interesting article.
  •  The importance of the characters’ names. This page has some nice ideas.
  •  Psychological ideas and good vs. evil. Also look here.
  •  Relevance to serial killers of the time (eg Jack the Ripper).
