  • CONFLICT
  • A
  • RISING ACTION
  • On his weekly walk with his friend and relative Enfield, Mr. Utterson, a barrister, finds himself standing in front of a dark and mysterious door in a street. Enfield recounts a night when he met a man who had to enter through that door. He had run over a girl and, instead of making a scene, he paid his family with a check made out to a well-established man in London. Enfield relates that the man who beat the girl was named Hyde.
  • CLIMAX
  • O God! O God!
  • With the information from Enfield, Utterson grows increasingly concerned about his friend Dr. Jekyll, who had recently changed his will to instruct that if anything happened to him, everything should be given to Hyde. Utterson is worried that Jekyll is being blackmailed by Hyde. Furthermore, he is increasingly alarmed by Hyde’s appearance, which seems to summon horror and hatred in anyone who observes him.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Late one night, a maid of Dr. Jekyll’s witnesses the brutal beating murder of a Sir Danvers Carew by Edward Hyde. Utterson goes to Jekyll, who assures him that Hyde is gone for good. He gives Utterson a letter from Hyde, which Utterson later suspects Jekyll has forged. Jekyll’s servants are frightened by things they’ve heard and seen in Jekyll’s laboratory, so they summon Utterson. They knock down the door to the laboratory and find Hyde dead from poison.
  • RESOLUTION
  • A
  • After Hyde’s disappearance, Jekyll sent a desperate letter to Dr. Lanyon, begging him to get a drawer from his laboratory. Hyde comes to pick it up, mixes up the contents, and drinks the mixture. He transforms into Henry Jekyll in front of Lanyon’s eyes. Lanyon is so distraught that he dies a few weeks later.
  • Utterson then reads a letter from Dr. Jekyll, which was left for him in the lab, along with a new copy of Jekyll's will, leaving everything to Utterson. He relates that all of his life, Jekyll felt that there were two sides to himself. Through various experiments, he unleashes Mr. Hyde, who is pure evil and exciting. Eventually, however, Hyde begins to take over Jekyll, and Jekyll begins to fear and hate him. Generating an identity disorder in Jekyll
  • Jekyll refuses to become Hyde for about 2 months, but soon the temptation returns. Suppressed for so long, a furious Hyde assassinates Sir Carew. This scares Jekyll into killing Hyde for good, but he eventually falls back to temptation. After this, Hyde begins to take over Jekyll every few hours, and Jekyll runs out of salt for the solution. He leaves the letter and changes the will to Utterson, knowing that Henry Jekyll will soon be gone forever. With great determination he decides to end his life so that Hyde ceases to exist.
