Respond the discussion activity below by constructing a one-paragraph argument about the plot of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

  1. Make a claim about how one of the concepts covered in the assigned reading about the plot (conflict, exposition, complication, protagonist, suspense, antagonist, climax, resolution, in media res, flashback, foreshadowing) is meaningful in the assigned novella.
  2. Add evidence to support your claim in the form of a quote from the novella to illustrate the point you are making.
  3. Add analysis by explaining how your quote proves or illustrates your claim.

Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. 'I incline to Cain's heresy,' he used to say quaintly: 'I let my brother go to the devil in his own way.' In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of downgoing men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour.

No doubt the feat was easy to Mr Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendships seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made . . .
