Summary

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, sometimes known more simply as Jekyll and Hyde, has enthralled and horrified listeners for over a century, so much so that the novella has impacted our natural language, with the phrase Jekyll and Hyde coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

It is a classic to study for GCSE and is full of complexities that need to be understood. Our GCSE audio guide for Jekyll and Hyde delves into the complex nature of the story, providing the necessary answers that you may require. We examine the context in which it was told, especially given the morals of the Victorian era and the advancement of science. We look at all the key themes, including the idea of the 'other' and the reliability of the narrator. We take you through the Gothic genre and all the key characters and the roles they play as well as the structure and form of the novella.

Furthermore, we analyse the novella chapter by chapter, drawing out all the key points, plus there are four final chapters on key quotations and exam techniques, furnishing you with the tools that will hopefully prove invaluable when it comes to the exam.

The series has been created by Alexandra Campbell, who has recently received a distinction in her English literature MA and currently teaches English literature at Glasgow University, thus providing academic insight; and Alex Blott, who has a MA in professional writing and currently tutors English literature for both A Level and GCSE, and so fully understands what is needed for students to pass their exams.
