Transcript of Symbols of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

What is a Symbol in literature?
Mist & Moonlight
The Mist and Moonlight creates an atmosphere of mistery and of suspence.
"Although a fog rolled over the city in the small hours, the early part of the night was cloudless, and the lane, wich the maid's window overlooked, was brilliantly lit by the full moon", In this quote the description of the night warns us that something wrong its going to happen, the fog in this case is a metaphore because the fog, rolling over the city indirectly tells us that Hyde is going to do something bad.

The Moonlight represents the evil and the suspence of the story."...the moon shone on his face as he spoke",

When a letter or a document appears in the story, this creates a mysterious atmosphere because the readers already know the letter hides something or its a clue to discover another secret of Dr. Jekyll. "I have- i have a letter; and i am at a loss whether i should show it to the police." This creates supense because we don't know what the letter says and the reader can assure that something bad is in that letter.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Both of this characters are a symbol. They represent the "classic battle" between the good and the bad."The powers of Hyde seemed to have grown with the sickliness of Jekyll. And certainly the hate now divided them was equal on each side." Jekyll was on a struggle the evil side of him was growing and he wanted to stop it but he couldn't.
