Mr. Utterson, the lawyer, is perplexed and disturbed. His close friend of many years, the well-respected Dr. Henry Jekyll, has fallen into the company of one Edward Hyde - a man who, by all accounts, is cruel, unfeeling, and seemingly pure evil. Fearing for his friend's life, Utterson tries to persuade Jekyll to rid himself of his new companion. Although Jekyll swears he can and will, Utterson continues to hear reports of the doctor's closeness to Hyde. The horrible crimes of the evil Mr. Hyde scandalize the community, and then when he murders a Member of Parliament, Utterson decides the situation is critical. Jekyll's relationship with Hyde must be stopped! Utterson, however, does not realize the full extent of that relationship, and the desperate lengths to which Jekyll must go to sever it. A short novel examining the dangers of a man trying to release, control, and rid himself his own dark nature. A short book and excellent choice for freshman (and up) students who want a challenging story.

    These are great study guides if you want to teach a novel from a Christian perspective. I love the material, and it is interesting while thought provoking.

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Posted by kafink on 16th Jul 2015

    This was not our first Progeny Press guide and like the others we've used, both my son and I liked this one. The synopsis, about the author, and background information all make for a more thorough reading and understanding of the story. Really think it is important to go over "period" vocabulary, and appreciate that Progeny Press starts out each study guide chapter that way. The questions cover not only story contents and themes, but also are personally thought-provoking. I like how it's not just the story, but also makes you think about your relationship to it, your morals, your values.
