Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
  1. The Double
    1. 'It must be that; the ghost of some old sin, the cancer of some concealed disgrace; punishment coming'
      1. 'I bind my honour to you that I am done with him in this world'
        1. 'I was thinking of my own character that this hateful business has rather exposed'
          1. 'The two hands are in many points identical'
            1. the searchers came into the cheval glass into whose deoth they looked with involuntary horror ...and their own pale and fearful countenances stooping to look in ...the glass had seem some strange things
              1. jekyll- this repression of duplicity-' severed in me those provinces of good and ill which divide an d compound man's dual nature..i was in no sense a hyprocrite; both sides of me were in dead earnest
        2. Hyde 'black secrets... secrets compared to which poor Jekyll's worst would be like sunshine'
          1. 'After the two months, he had his death warrant written legibly upon his face... his flesh had fallen away... a look in the eye and quality of manor that seemed to testify to some deep seated terror the mind'
            1. Sir if that was my master why had he a mask upon his face? if it was my master why did he cry out like a rat and run from me?- paul
              1. in jekyll's books- he put 'no more than a single word; double'...followed by 'total failure !!!'
              2. the creature was so doubled up
              3. Nightwalking
                1. 'The lamps, unshaken by any wind, drawing a regular pattern of light and shadow'
                  1. 'By ten o'clock, when the shops were closed, the bystreets were very solitary, and in spite of the low growl of London from all around, very silent'
                    1. "Mr Utterrson thought he had never seen that part of London so deserted, he could have wished it otherwise; never in his life had he been so conscious of so sharp a wish to see and touch his fellow creatures; for struggle as he might there was borne in upon his mind a crushing anticipation of calamity"
                    2. 'The fog still slept on the wing above the drowned city where the malps glimmered like carbunckles.. the procession of the town's life was still rolling in through the great arteries with a soul as of a mighty wind'
                    3. City
                      1. Hyde's house
                        1. 'furnished with luxury and good taste... however, the rooms bore every mark of having been recently and hurridly randsacked'
                          1. 'For the buildings are so packed, together about that court that it's hard to say where one ends and another begins' - Hyde's house
                        2. Jekyll's house
                          1. 'wore a great air of wealth and comfort, thought it was now plunged in darkness... Utterson himself was wont to speak of it as the pleasentest room in London but tonight there was shudderi n his blood; the face of Hyde sat heavy on his memory... he seemed to read a menace in the flickering of the firelight on the polished cabinets and the uneasy starting of the shadow on the roof'
                          2. 'Mr Utterson beheld a marvelous number of degrees and hues of twilight... the dismal quarter of Soho seen under these changing glimses... seemed in the lawyer's eyes like a district of some city in a nightmare'
                            1. Utterson and Enflield 'sunday walks [...] led them down a bystreet in a busy quarter of London'
                              1. Market - 'the streets shone out in contrast to its dingy neighbourhood, like a fire in a forest [...] general cleanliness [...] pleased the eye of the passenger'
                                1. Hyde's house - 'a certain sinsister block of building, thrust forward it's gable on the street [...] bore in every feature the marks of prolonged and sordid neglegence' -
                                2. (no windows or bell knocker) 'the door... was blistered and distained. Tramps slouched into the recess'
                                3. 'The court was very cool and a little damp and full of premature twilight'
                              2. Repression
                                1. 'I never saw a man I so disliked and yet a scarce no why... and it's not want of memory for I declare I can see him this moment '
                                  1. the devil long caged, he came out roaring
                                    1. Utterson's dream - 'A room in a rich house where his friend lay asleep... and then the door of that room would be opened... there would stand by his side a figure to whom power was given, and even at that dead hour, he must rise and do it's bidding'
                                      1. layton- i cannot even in memory dwell on it without a start of horror
                                      2. Utterson talking to Jekyll through the window when he is in seclusion "there was an answering horror in their eyes...but the words were hardly uttered before the smile was struck out of his face and succeeded by an expression of such abject terror and despair as froze the very blood of the two gentlemen below"
                                        1. jekyll- ive been made to learn that the doom and burden of our life is bound forever on mans shoulders; when the attemot is made to cast it off it but returns upon us with a more unfamiiliar and more awful pressure
                                    2. Utterson's dream - 'still the figure had no face by which he might know it'
                                      1. there was something queer about that gentleman- something that gave a man a turn- i dont know rightly how to say it sir beyond this; that you felt it in your marrow, kind of cold and thin - Poole
                                        1. sold a slave to my original evil...an unknown but not an innocent freedom of the soul
                                        2. Characters
                                          1. Mr Utterson
                                            1. The laywer was a man of rugged countenence that was never lighted by a smile, cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse - sense of moral highground emblematic of Victorian rigidity
                                              1. 'He was austere with himself'
                                                1. 'The last good influence in the lives of downgoing men [...] even his friendships seemed to be founded in a similar cathlocity of good nature'
                                                  1. that thing in the mask was never Doctor Jekyll- God knows what it was but it was never doctor jekyll
                                                  2. 'Bachelor house'
                                                    1. 'Being a man of no scientific passions'
                                                      1. your master, poole, is plainly ceased with one of those maladies that both torture and deform the sufferer...the poor soul retains some hope of ultimate recovery- god grant that he be not decieved
                                                      2. Enfield
                                                        1. 'The man trampled calmly over the child's body... it sounds nothing to hear, but it was hellish to see. It wasn't like a man, it was like some damned juggernaught. He was perfectly cool and made no resistence, but gave me one look, so ugly, it brought out the sweat on me, like running'
                                                          1. 'I had taken a loathing to my gentlemen at first sight.. I saw that Sorebones (the doctor) turned sick and white with the desire to kill him. I knew what was in his mind, just as he knew what was in mine, and killing being out of the question, we did the next best thing' (make him pay a fine)
                                                            1. 'He had an improved tolerance of others'
                                                            2. 'I am ashamed of my long tongue, let us make a bargin never to refer to this again... With all my heart said the lawyer, I shake hands on that Richard'
                                                            3. Hyde
                                                              1. 'i took the libery of pointing out... that a man does not, in real life, walk into a cellar door at four in the morning and come out of it with another man's cheque'
                                                                1. Enfield - 'he is not easy to describe, there is something wrong with his appearence; something displeasing, something damnright detestable. I never saw a man I so disliked and yet a scarce no why... He gives me strong feeling of disformity although I couldn't specify the point... and it's not want of memory for I declare I can see him this moment '
                                                                  1. 'A face worth seeing: the face of a man who was without bowels of mercy... a spirit of enduring hatred'
                                                                    1. no family, no photos, 'only on one point were they agreed... that was the haunting sense of unexpressed disformity'
                                                                      1. the body of a man sorely contorted and still twitching...he was dressed in clothes far too large for him, clothes of the doctor's bigness, the cords of his face still moved with the semblance of life but life was quite gone; by the crushed phial in the hand and the strong smell of curnels that hung upon the aite- Utterson knew that he was looking upon the body of a self-destroyer
                                                                        1. Utterson looking at Hyde - 'he was small, and very plainly dressed, and the look of him, even at that distance, went somehow, strongly, against the watcher's inclination'
                                                                      2. Jekyll
                                                                        1. Dr Lanyon about Jeykll - 'It is more than ten years since Henry Jekyll became too fanciful for me. He began to go wrong, wrong in mind... such unscientific balderdash'
                                                                          1. 'He was wild when he was young; a long while ago to be sure; but in the law of God there is not statute of limitations'
                                                                            1. with a sudden stutter of the pen the writer's emotion had broken loose
                                                                              1. find a copy of a pious work for which Jekyll had several time expressed a great esteem and attainted in his own hand with startling blasphemies
                                                                            2. 'Large handsome face of Dr Jekyll grew pale to the very lips and there came a blackness about his eyes' (when Utterson asks about Hyde)
                                                                              1. 'Now that the evil influence had been withdrawn, a new life began for Dr Jekyll, he came out of selusion, renewed relations with this fiends'
                                                                                1. we heard him cry out upon the name of God and WHOSE in there instead of him and WHY it stays there, is a thing that cries to heaven
                                                                                2. 'For more than two months the doctor was a peace'
                                                                                  1. In a letter to Utterson - 'You must suffer me to go my own dark way... I have brought on myself a pusnihment and a danger I cannot name. If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also.
                                                                                    1. labouring under a blackness of distress that no fancy can exaggerate
                                                                                      1. to be tempted, however slightly, was to fall
                                                                                  2. Evolution and degeneration
                                                                                    1. Enfielld - 'He gives me strong feeling of disformity although I couldn't specify the point'
                                                                                      1. 'Mr Hyde strank back, with a hissing intake of the breath. But his fear was only momentary... he did not look the lawyer in the face'
                                                                                        1. 'Snarled aloud into a savage laugh; and the next moment, with extraordinary quickness, he had unlocked the door and disappeared into the house'
                                                                                          1. jekyll- man is not truly one but truly two ... i learnt to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man; i saw that of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness even if i could be rightly said to be either it was only because i was radically both
                                                                                            1. if each i told myself could be housed in seperate identities, life would be relieved of all that was unbearable; the unjust might go his way
                                                                                          2. 'A displeasing smile... a sort-of murderous mixture of timidity and boldness... a husky whispering and somewhat broken voice... But not all of these together could explain the hitherto unknown disgust, loathing and fear with which Mr Utterson regarded him'
                                                                                          3. 'Mr Hyde was pale and dwarfish; he gave an impression of deformity without any namable malformation'
                                                                                            1. Layton- i have since had reason to believe the cause to lie much deeper in the nature of man and to turn on some noble hinge than the principle of hatred
                                                                                              1. layton- there was something abnormal and misbegotten in the very essence if the creature ...my interest in the mans nature and character there was added curisoity to his origin, his life, his fortune and his status in the world
                                                                                            2. Utterson - 'The man seems hardly human... or is it the mere radiance of a foul soul that thus transpires through and transfigures its clay continent'
                                                                                              1. Layton- he was small as i have said; i was struck besides with the shocking expression of his face with his renarkable combination of great muscular activity and great apparent ability of constitution
                                                                                                1. Utterson - 'Oh my poor old Harry Jekyll, if ever I read Satan's signiture upon a face, it is on that of your new friend'
                                                                                                  1. that thing was not my master and theres the truth...my master...is a tall fine build of a man and this was more of a dwarf- Poole
                                                                                                    1. when that masked thing like a monkey jumped from among the chemicals and whipped into the cabinet, it went down my spine like ice...i know its not evidence mr Utterson; im book learned enough for that; but a man has his feelings; but i give you my bible-word that man was Mr hyde
                                                                                                      1. evil i fear, founded evil was sure to come of that connection
                                                                                                        1. Hyde 'broke out in a great flame of anger, stamping with his foot, brandishing the cane and carrying on like a mad man... clubbed him to the ground'
                                                                                                          1. Pooles heard it crying- weeping like a woman or a lost soul ...i could have wept too
                                                                                                            1. jekyll- these polar twins should be continuously struggling how then were they dissassociated
