Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde Character Analysis Essay

Chapters 1-3 (Pg 1-25)

Mr. Hyde’s appearance is very interesting. It is a very odd appearance. When one sees a person, it can be hard to point out what one does not like about them. This seems to be the case with Mr. Hyde’s appearance.This can be seen with Enfield's description of him. As he talks to Utterson, he say that Hyde “is not easy to describe”(Stevenson 8). This could be that Hyde's appearance is just so different and odd that it can’t be described. When one is describing one's appearance; usually describe an appearance by comparing it to another person, or giving little details. Here it seems that Hyde has a fairly odd appearance.

This murder overall seems somewhat random. When Mr. Hyde was talking to Cardew “ then all of a sudden broke out in a great flame of anger”(Stevenson 27).

There is also something that is very vicious about this murder. Things that were very vicious about this murder of Danvers Cardew are that it was “with ape-like fury”(Stevenson 27).

Jekyll Is having trouble with the chemicals that he has ordered. Dr. Jekyll’s letter “assures that them that their last sample is is impure and quite useless for his present purpose”(Stevenson 54). The purpose for the chemicals are for Mr. Hyde to be able to turn back into Dr. Jekyll. Also in Dr. Jekyll’s letter “ he added, “fine me some of the old.””( Stevenson 55). Dr. Jekyll seems to be very worked up about these problems. Dr. Jekyll if not able to be able to turn back from being Mr. Hyde would be killed by the police for the murder of Cardew. I think that he might be so worked at is that if he does completely change into Hyde he is not able to go on living like he was. He also may be scared of going completely to his pure evil
