and glorify your Father who is in heaven.’ (Matthew 5:16)

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Key Quotations

Story of the Door

Stevenson presents Mr Utterson as a stereotypical Victorian gentleman as he is described as ‘austere with himself'. He is also typical as he prioritizes his public appearance which is why he 'drank gin when he was alone.'

Mr Enfield's description of Mr Hyde was that there was ‘something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing; something down-right detestable.’ The repetition of the word something is effective as it emphasizes the mysterious nature of Mr Hyde as well as the negativity of his appearance.

The description of Mr Hyde's treatment of the young girl is shocking. It says ‘the man trampled calmly over the child’s body.’ The verb 'trampled' does not match the adverb 'calmly' (oxymoron) and the violence seems worse because it is a child (emotive language).
