January 2011- Jekyll and Hyde
How does Stevenson's writing here make this area of London so sinister?
Stevenson uses multiple techniques in order to make this passage so sinister. The description of how "the wind was continually charging and routing these embattled vapours", uses the idea of personification. The word "charging" to describe the movement of the wind implies how strong it is and how with such a great force it's powering its way through the streets of London giving a sinister atmosphere. The technique of pathetic fallacy also comes through here as the words "charging" and "embattled" come to mind with the description of Mr Hyde. Throughout the book he continuously "charges" through the streets of the city and battles everyone in his way which is a frequent occurrence during the novel.
