Read Robert Louis Stevenson's complete novel, 'The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde', accompanied by a modern translation, literary analysis, and questions with model answers! Essential reading for anyone taking exams on the book!

“A great teacher,” Jeremy Paxman on BBC’s Newsnight.

“Clearly Francis Gilbert is a gifted and charismatic teacher,” Philip Pullman, author of 'Northern Lights'.

Are you struggling to understand Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'?

Or are you an English teacher wanting ready-made exercises and guidance to help you teach this difficult text? Do your students need support to understand the language properly and work independently on the book?

This brilliant edition of Stevenson’s novel may be the answer to your prayers. Written by an experienced teacher and best-selling author, this version is aimed at students who must analyse the text in depth or teachers wanting to deliver outstanding lessons on it. This book contains an annotated complete text, numerous essays on the novel, including detailed accounts of Robert Louis Stevenson’s life, relevant contexts and discussion of vital themes and imagery. The complex vocabulary of the book is analysed throughout, and simple explanations of what is happening punctuate each chapter. Furthermore, there are academic explorations of the issues as well as comprehensive question and answer sections at the end of each chapter, including a “fill-in-the-blanks” summary to check understanding. At the end of the guide, there is advice on how to write successful essays and assignments. There are also plenty of pointers to help students develop their own personal responses, including thought-provoking thematic questions, links to the author’s YouTube readings and explanations, and creative response tasks.

Please note: this Study Guide Edition contains the complete text and an integrated study guide, complete with answers to all the questions set. Its companion volume 'Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde: Complete Text & Translation' would be ideal for students because it does not contain the answers in this edition. Teachers would probably prefer this edition.

Sarah Page writes: "As an English Literature teacher, I found your book a lifeline. Surprisingly, my pupils found your “cloze” (fill-in-the-gaps) exercises engaging, but what was most empowering was being able to relay the ‘translations’ of the text: your emboldened alternative words were extremely useful and enlightening for both the pupils and myself. In addition, your tours around the capital were also very good, particularly as shoe-horning context is particularly vital.

Anyhow, just wanted to say ‘thanks’ for the ‘Study Guide Edition’ which is far removed from the usual “study guide” and very in tune with the thinking teacher / pupil."
