Flashcards in Themes - Duality Deck (13):

What shows that every person has two sides to them

Man is not truly one, but truly two

Jekyll says this in the last chapter


How is the street (of where Hyde's house is) showing duality

The street shone out in contrast to its dinghy neighbourhood, like fire in a forest


Jekyll admits another side of his character

I was thinking of my own character which this hateful business has rather exposed


How Jekyll tries to repress the second side that had come out

He came out of seclusion, renewed relations with his friends


Jekyll explicitly states that man is dual

Severed in me those provinces of good and evil which divide and compound man's dual nature


Jekyll thinks you can get rid of one side

Could be housed in separate identities, life would be relieved of all that was unbearable; the unjust might go his way


Jekyll feels transformed by becoming hyde - but really he is just one person
One side can take over the other too

At the first breath of this new life, to be wicked, tenfold more wicked, sold a slave to my original evil


The two sides are really one - they share things

My two natures had memory in common


Stevenson likes Darwinism to Freuds theory and duality

Primitive duality of man


He is confronted with the fact he is neither one side nor th either

It was only because I was radically both


How does duality link to Darwin

Many people wanted to get rid of their 'bad' side which they believed was the ape-like primitive part of them, like Hyde


But Jekyll still believes that there is not exclusively a good / bad side

I had come forth an angel instead of a fiend


What does Enfield do that shows he has another side

someplace at the end of the world, about three o clock of a black winter morning
