“ if he be Mr Hyde… i shall be Mr seek”
shows Hydes secrecy and how there may be a secret side to him what people are unaware of
pun of hide and seek
“A man of Rugged countenance… but somehow lovable"
although he is described as unemotional , he is also described as somehow loveable,
This means he seems abrasive,rough and tough. this leads us to believe that he is unemotional and intimidating
this description shows the dual nature of the characters in the novella
it shows how utterson has two sides
"that man is not truly one, but truly two "
this quote shows how jekyll belives in the idea that all individuals have a good and a bad side,
he belives that each side is independent from one another
represents the two sides of Hyde and how at the end of the novella he loses control and struggles to manage the two sides
the scowl of pleasure and evil at once shows how complex and indefinable the double identity has become.
“thorough and primitive duality of man”
this shows how Jekyll believes that there are two sides to everybody and how every man had a dual nature
He considers it "primitive" and part of man's essential nature.
This shows how evil Hyde really is as he is commiting such an evil act in such a calm manner
Oxymoron shows dual nature , and represents the good and evil presented in the novella
duality is represented as trampling on something is normally seen as a viscous and somewthing which is done with anger
"The street shone out in contrast to its dingy neighbourhood".
An example of the theme of duality symbolised in the description of the city.
shows the contrast between the street and the surrounding
"i bring that life of that unhappy henry jekyll to an end "
i was once more Edward Hyde
" that man was not truly one but truly two"
"The other snarled aloud into a savage laugh"
Animalism shows how much of a creature and how inhuman Hyde really is
Anything that hints that his behaviour is animistic would have been scary in Victorian times because it suggests a link with animals/biology that goes against their religious beliefs of God creating humans.
This shows that Hyde doesn't care about his actions and has no control over his fiery, animalistic behaviour.
"with ape like fury"
The use of the simile 'ape-like fury' describes Hyde as an animal capable of rages, not a human.
"i was once more edward hyde"
Mr. Hyde is the embodiment of unfulfilled desires and experiences that Jekyll must forgo in order to be a reputable member of society.
these words mark the point at which Hyde finally begins to dominate the Jekyll-Hyde relationship
This presents Hyde as dominating, in control and powerful over Jekyll
"something displeasing, something downright detestable"
shows how hyde is unatrual and deformed
that he is so unnapealing that he is difficult to describe
"murderous mixture of timidity and boldness
I saw that Sawbones turn sick and white with desire to kill him.”
