jekyll hyde
Professor Owen Dudley-Edwards, an expert on Robert Louis Stevenson at Edinburgh University, discusses the major themes of Robert Louis Stevenson's popular horror story. We consider the range of cinematic rewrites available, before plunging into the major themes of the text; dual personality and schizophrenia; morality; philosophy; vice and virtue; the follies of human nature; the restraints imposed by society - particularly the respectable Victorian society; and the individual self. The podcast is ideal for higher ability GCSE revision, and as an introduction to the text at A-level.
