In the last few weeks I have involved myself in a series of discussions on the novella. Recently I have wondered whether this document might assist students. It is one part of a two-part document. I have had to include my copy of the text, because all text references are to my version of the text. It should not be too difficult for students to translate my reference to their copy of the text. I write for the Scottish exam system, however I believe these notes are relevant for other examination systems.
The critical document is the "Sequence and Time Line" which is included. This document took me weeks to create. RLS intended his novella to be - in a sense - confusing. He wanted readers to come away from the novella perplexed. However - I feel - to seriously study the novella there needs to be a sequential sequence of events in order to fully understands what actually happens in the novella.
It was only when I had constructed this document that I was able to make a serious analysis and judgement on the novella.
I have not permitted copy and pasting nor have I permitted printing. Sorry if that is a problem for you.
That said I do hope that the Sequence and Time Line is of help to students in their study of the novella.
