Class Experience

Students will gain a thorough understanding of the novel and develop confidence in writing about it using academic language.
I have three university degrees in literature - that's why I get to call myself 'Doctor' Radice. I've also taught literature for more than thirteen years in schools, to classes ranging from age nine to eighteen.

There are two violent scenes in the novel, which some younger readers may find disturbing. The first is when Edward Hyde tramples on a young girl in Chapter One. The second is when Edward Hyde murders Sir Danvers Carew in Chapter Four. Any other violence is only referred to rather than described.
