Jekyll and Hyde: how to tackle the extract-based questions

13 Feb

Hello all,jekyll_and_hyde

Some of you have been asking for exemplars on how to analyse the extracts and although we will look at some student work from past candidates, here are a couple of extracts that I have pulled to pieces so that you can see how to get to grips with close language analysis, use of technical terminology, theme and effect upon the reader. Remember that you will only have about an hour on J&H in the exam, and during that time you will have to answer 4 questions on it. I’ve included the mark scheme here too if you wanted a head start on this… Happy reading!

Jekyll and Hyde – some useful research and revision materials

28 Jan

Hello all,

These links will take you to lots of useful information about Stevenson’s novella. Remember, in the exam you will have to analyse an extract (close reading skills at the ready) and be able to choose and discuss another part of the novel along a similar theme ie: horror, duality, madness, religion/ science etc. or by focusing on a particular character. You must know the novella inside out and back to front so reading it at least 3 times is necessary.
