Analysing Jekyll and Hyde through the Victorian fin de siècle fears

In this lesson, we will start with a quick quiz testing your knowledge of some of the vocabulary that we have been looking at so far in this unit. Then, we will look at what fin de siècle is and how this applies to the Gothic and, in particular, Jekyll and Hyde. By understanding context, we can better appreciate a writer’s authorial intent which we will be focusing on again this week.
