THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE – TRANSLATED INTO CLEAR MODERN ENGLISH FOR GCSE.
Many GCSE English Literature students study Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, but struggle to understand Robert Louis Stevenson’s difficult and convoluted Victorian prose. This book will help them.
It’s a careful translation of Stevenson’s novel into clear and straightforward modern English. It has been written and tailored for GCSE English Literature students of all abilities.
See what NATE – the National Association for the Teaching of English – said about this book in its April 2019 newsletter:
“A readable version that preserves the narrative and…the ideas of the original. Many teachers will find it a practical way of ensuring that… the text [is] accessible to students.”
“REALLY helpful. Much easier to understand than the original.” – Sam, GCSE student.
The translation is as faithful as possible to Stevenson’s original and
- unknots knotty sentences
- explains unfamiliar vocabulary
- divides lengthy paragraphs more comprehensible chunks
- includes notes on vocabulary, themes and the Victorian period and context
