  • 12. The 'Double' in 19th-century Fiction

    A ‘double’ looks exactly like another person, while the phrase a ‘double personality’ is used about a person who behaves in two very different ways. Stevenson’s novel is so famous that in modern English the phrase ‘a Jekyll and Hyde character’ refers to a person whose behaviour varies enormously. But there are other stories in which the theme of the ‘double’ is important. [...]

  • 13. The Sad Conclusion

    I was Edward Hyde and the police in London were looking everywhere for me! London was dangerous for Edward Hyde, the murderer. I needed the powders from the laboratory. But how to get them? I did not trust the servants. Then I had an idea. I remembered Dr Lanyon. He could go to the laboratory for me! I went to a hotel and I wrote a letter to Dr Lanyon. I asked him to go to the laboratory and to bring the powders to his house. [...]
