    How does Stevenson use the setting to represent the theme of good versus evil in the novel as a whole? can you preferably tell me using PEEL paragraphs ty.

    1. What details of the setting does Stevenson provide? Think about light/dark, colours, places/names of places with good/bad reputations, interesting nouns, personification, verbs with negative and positive connotations. Any obvious connections to good or evil?

    2. Are there any clear representations of good vs evil in the novel that you can cross-reference? E.g. Hyde running the little girl over vs the concerned onlookers (though they assume a threatening aspect towards Hyde so this could be mixed).

    3. How do different settings differ? Why might they be different? For example, if two events (one good, one bad) happen in the same place, is the place described differently each time?

    4. Remember, appearances can be deceiving. Hyde may be bad, the man he killed may be good, but does Stevenson suggest in any way that this might not be as clear-cut a case as it seems?

    I realise I haven't done what you asked, but you shouldn't expect strangers to do your homework for you! I hope this helps.
