    I’m currently trying to revise the themes of this novel but I am finding it difficult to get key quotations with each theme? If someone would help me out as I have a mock on Friday that would be much apprenticed!

    hi,

    If your doing the 2017 paper its chapter 7 about Jekyll's character.

    Themes:
    friendship (chapter 1 utterson) something about 'ivy'
    duality and false appearance (theres loads)
    supernatural (again loads)

    hello, just be careful not to take the words too much to heart as the above poster may be talking about a different exam board.

    themes in j + h:
    degeneration- hyde is considered a less evolved version of man; lack of control and conscious as well as having animalistic features. can we see him as truly evil or do we have sympathy for him also?
    duality- self-explanatory. consider whether jekyll's truly good.
    hypocrisy- jekyll admires his good will in the tenth chapter and putting himself above other men when really, he's just as bad.
    science + religion- lanyon + jekyll dispute on jekyll's scientific pursuals. however, when lanyon witnesses the transformation of hyde to jekyll he cries out "oh god"- consider the significance of this.
