The relationship between Jekyll & Hyde

In this 35 minute recording we discuss the primary relationship in Stevenson's novella - that between Dr Henry Jekyll and the mysterious Mr Hyde.

We look at both a conventional reading of the pair and the somewhat left of field idea that Hyde is actually the victim of the narrative. Finally we delve into the psychological models of Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung in an effort to better understand the dynamic between the two men, when set against the backdrop of a repressive Victorian culture.
