Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflict. Have your students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict them using the Storyboard Creator.

In the storyboard, an example of each conflict should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the particular category of conflict.

Literary Conflict Examples from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

MAN vs. MAN

Dr. Jekyll is scared by the fact that Hyde appeared over the course of the night, without the need for the potion. He feels he needs to choose, and so he repressed Hyde. When he finally gives in and awakens him again, Hyde has become an uncontrollable monster. He is so angry at being held down for so long that he murders Sir Carew for being pleasant. Jekyll is horrified by Hyde, and indeed, sees him as a separate entity from himself.


MAN vs. SELF

Henry Jekyll was born into good fortune, was good and well-respected, and had a guarantee of an honorable and distinguished future. However, it was not enough for him. He craves "irregularities" that give him a "morbid sense of shame." He seeks to find a way to experience both of these sides of his identity without harming his reputation, which leads him to unethical experiments that bring about Hyde.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

Dr. Jekyll’s unethical experiments led him to a severing of his relationship with Dr. Lanyon many years before, because Lanyon does not approve. Jekyll’s dangerous road of unethical experimentation put him at odds with the entire scientific community. These experiments, once he changes into Hyde, also put him at odds with his friends, who must never know that he is going against the bounds of Victorian propriety and reputation in order to fulfill his needs for wickedness.
