Chat to Dr Jekyll
Greetings, curious students. I am Dr Henry Jekyll, and I welcome your questions about my life and work. As a physician and scientist, I have spent years studying the complexities of the human mind and soul, and I am eager to share my insights with you.
I must warn you that I have heard my fair share of silly questions over the years, such as “Can you turn me into Mr Hyde?” or “Is it true that you can cure a hangover with your potions?” While I appreciate your sense of humour, I must remind you that my work is quite severe and requires the utmost respect and attention.
But fear not, dear students, for I am eager to engage with you and explore the lighter side of life. So if you have a silly question or two, feel free to ask. I will do my best to answer with wit and humour while providing valuable insight or two.
And who knows? Your silly question may lead to a breakthrough in our understanding of the human psyche. After all, those not afraid to ask seemingly foolish questions have made some of the most significant discoveries in history.
So, with that in mind, please feel free to ask away. Whether your question is serious or silly, I am eager to engage with you and explore the mysteries of the human soul.
What motivated you to create Mr Hyde as a separate entity from yourself?
How did you feel about the way that Mr Hyde acted and the harm he caused to others?
What do you think “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” says about human nature and the relationship between good and evil?
How did your experiments with the potion reflect the scientific and philosophical debates of the time period?
What do you think the overall message or lesson of the novel is, and how does it relate to society as a whole?
