Apperances is another theme seen carried on in the novel. Mainly noticed with the two character Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde, alot of the times when we encounter these characters the setting represents them in a way.

Major Work Data Sheet
The signifance of the title is the play on words of,"The Stange Case," I feel that in itself it shows that Dr. Jekeyll and Mr. Hyde have a strange relationship in which a single case involves them both as if their one person.
AP Topic #1
The experiment Dr. Jeykll creates in order to bring about Mr. Hyde; allows for Dr. Jeykll to escape the high social views of humanity. Mr. Hyde allows for Dr. Jeykll to portray his tue personaility without fearing the repercutions of his actions.
Dr. Jeykll's loss of innocence is diplayed when we discover he takes the form of Mr. Hyde actioning on sinster intentions.
*"the animal within me licking the chops of memory" Stevenson chapter 10
The mask Mr. Hyde provided Dr. Jeykll with the oppurtunity to act on his wicked thoughts and escape humanity loosing the loss of man or the loss of good.
AP Topic #2
The dramatic, gothic undertone of the beginning of, The Strang Case of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Stevenson, sets a dark sinister atmoshere to display the mysteric personality of the characters and town.
The depth of the first chapter lays out the plot and setting of the overall book. We are forced to believe that the town alone is dark bringing out each characters sisnter side.
*"Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty... 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."
Without the first chapater I think we would've lost the mindset part that Stevenson wanted us to be in and our depiction of knowing what the book will be about.

Function of the setting
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekeyll and Mr. Hyde
Robert Louis Stevenson
January 5th 1886
Drama, Horror Fiction, Thiller
Many of the settings that take plae throughout the novel involves dark, dramatic, and desrciptive scenre in which builds the sinister atmosphere. In the beginning of the novel alot of scenes take place on the street lined with houses and also the neighborhood Mr. Hyde lives in. This dark gothic setting increases the suspense and horror effect in each setting.
"This document had long been the lawyer's eyesore. It offended him both as a lawyer and as a lover of the sane and customary sides of life, to whom the fanciful was the immodest. And hitherto it was his ignorance of Mr. Hyde that had swelled his indignation; now, by a sudden turn, it was his knowledge. It was already bad enough when the name was but a name of which he could learn no more. It was worse when it began to be clothed upon with detestable attributes; and out of the shifting, insubstantial mists that had so long baffled his eye, there leaped up the sudden, definite presentment of a fiend." (Stevenson chpt. 2)
"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." (Stevenson chpt. 1)

Nice to Eat You; Acts of Vampire
Vampire stores revovle around a man wanting to become strong to protect himelf or his family and so he seeks out Dracula in order to recicve dark immotal powers. Once he recicves what he wishes we see the strugle of the second Dracula trying to maintain his evil side with the good of his former humanity which is soon overrode by his vampire personality. In, The Strange Case of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde, we are able to apply this theory to Dr. Jeykll, who creates Mr. Hyde so that Dr. Jeykll can commit his evil without consequences. Toward the end Dr. Jeykll is overtaken or trapped by Mr. Hyde realizing his evil as Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jeykll kills himself as Mr. Hyde in order to protect the world from himself.
"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. . . . He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theater, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years."
"It was on the moral side, and in my own person, that I learned to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both; and from an early date . . . I had learned to dwell with pleasure, as a beloved daydream, on the thought of the separation of these elements."
The beginning of the book sets up the dominant stylist of Robert Stevenson. We are introduced to two desriptive characters. Stevenson's descriptions helps to place the sinister undertone of the book, also the story of Mr. Enfield first encounter with Mr. Hyde which sets up the wicked nature for the rest of the book. Stevenson grasp that right of the back with putting the thoughts of distrubing qualities and actions of Mr. Hyde.
