I am struggling to think of ideas for the question 'How is Mr Utterson presented as a rational and reliable narrator?'

Thanks

Hi,
What you could say is that due to Mr Utterson being a representation of the typical Victorian Gentleman, he is conditioned to comply by societies morals, which include: not gossiping and maintaining his respectable position in the idealized hierarchy, through his narration he is rational as he treats everybody fairly, showing how he is conscious of his reputation from other people's perspectives, however alternative interpretations could include, how he is outspoken about Hyde when he states 'I can't pretend that i shall ever like him' hinting Stevenson's ideas that no matter how morally superior one can be, evil is still festered in everyone.
Hope this helped

Hey just wondering what are people thinking the question will be for the paper next week?

Everyone is banging on about kingship for Macbeth and someone said secrecy for Jekyll if so does anyone have any good extracts?
