Jekyll and Hyde Wider Reading Booklet | KS4 Teaching Resource

Click here to access a booklet that contains extracts from seven essays I’ve predominantly taken from the excellent British Library website.

  1. The Life of Robert Louis Stevenson
  2. Preface to Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
  3. ‘Man is not truly one, but truly two’: duality in Jekyll and Hyde (Parts 1 and 2)
  4. Gothic fiction in the fin de siècle: mutating bodies and disturbed minds
  5. Post Darwin: social Darwinism, degeneration, eugenics
  6. Ian Rankin on The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Parts 1 and 2)
  7. The beast within

The booklet’s designed to give students some accessible wider reading they can tackle at home and then discuss in class.  Click on the links below to access similar ones I put together a little while ago:
