The extract starts with the words_________ and ends with the words_______. And as she so sat she became aware of an aged and beautiful gentleman with white hair,

drawing near along the lane; and advancing to meet him, another and very small gentleman, to whom at first she paid less attention. When they had come within speech (which was just under the maid's eyes) the older man bowed and accosted the other with a very pretty manner of politeness. It did not seem as if the subject of his address were of great importance; indeed, from his pointing, it sometimes appeared as if he were only inquiring his way; but the moon shone on his face as he spoke, and the girl was pleased to watch it, it seemed to breathe such an innocent and old-world kindness of disposition, yet with something high too, as of a well-founded self-content. Presently her eye wandered to the other, and she was surprised to recognise in him a certain Mr. Hyde, who had once visited her master and for whom she had conceived a dislike. He had in his hand a heavy cane, with which he was trifling; but he answered never a word, and seemed to listen with an ill-contained impatience. And then all of a sudden he broke out in a great flame of anger, stamping with his foot, brandishing the cane, and carrying on (as the maid described it) like a madman. The old gentleman took a step back, with the air of one very much surprised and a trifle hurt; and at that Mr. Hyde broke out of all bounds and clubbed him to the earth. And next moment, with ape-like fury, he was trampling his victim under foot and hailing down a storm of blows, under which the bones were audibly shattered and the body jumped upon the roadway. At the horror of these sights and sounds, the maid fainted. The Final Push Section A

(Total for Question 2 = 40 marks) Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Extract taken from Search for Mr Hyde. Six oclock struck on the bells of the church that was so conveniently near to Mr Uttersons dwelling, and still he was digging at the problem. Hitherto it had touched him on the intellectual side alone; but now his imagination also was engaged or rather enslaved; and as he lay and tossed in the gross darkness of the night and the curtained room, Mr Enfields tale went by before his mind in a scroll of lighted pictures. He would be aware of the great field of lamps of a nocturnal city; then of the figure of a man walking swiftly; then of a child running from the doctors; and then these met, and that human Juggernaut trod the child down and passed on regardless of her screams. Or else he would see a room in a rich house, where his friend lay asleep, dreaming and smiling at his dreams; and then the door of that room would be opened, the curtains of the bed plucked apart, the sleeper recalled, and lo! there would stand by his side a figure to whom power was given, and even at that dead hour, he must rise and do its bidding. The figure in these two phases haunted the lawyer all night; and if at any time he dozed over, it was but to see it glide more stealthily through sleeping houses, or move the more swiftly and still the more swiftly, even to dizziness, through wider labyrinths of lamplighted city, and at every street corner crush a child and leave her screaming. And still the figure had no face by which he might know it; even in his dreams, it had no face,

or one that baffled him and melted before his eyes; and thus it was that there sprang up and grew apace in the lawyers mind a singularly strong, almost an inordinate, curiosity to behold the features of the real Mr Hyde.

Consider cause and effect Consider how he effects the plot Theme Consider the key moments for the theme Consider the morals or lessons about the theme Consider the impact of the theme Consider what character represents the theme Consider the overall message about the theme One key moment for the theme of violence is at the end of chapter 3 when Curley attacks Lennie. This is a significance moment because it delivers the message that violence is difficult to stop and often the size of the fighter isnt relevant. For example, He slashed at Lennie with his left, and then smashed down his nose with a right. Lennie gave a cry of terror. The dynamic verb slashed presents the violence as deadly, like Curleys fists are weapons. This is supported by the other aggressive verb smashed which demonstrates the

power in Curleys punches and how much damage violence causes. Finally the adjective terror emphasises the fear Lennie feels and supports the idea that violence has an impact on everyone regardless of size. Contextually Curleys attack represents the violence of the era, with men more likely to fight for the status and power due to the crippling financial situation triggered by the wall street crash in 1929. This moment leaves most readers in shock at how quickly violence can occur, while some readers might relish the fact that these characters have finally clashed. 1. 2. 3. 4.

To a mouse which has a message that often tragic events happen despite good planning. 2. John Steinbeck had many labouring jobs before he became a writer and he travelled America with his dog looking for work. Context 3. Racism Black people were confined to separate and usually inferior areas and facilities. They lived in different neighbourhoods, attended separate schools, and were barred from entering certain professions. Some states refused to allow black people to enter theatres and restaurants. Even public transport was segregated into white seats and black seats. 4. The American Dream Because America was a new land with no aristocracy, it gained the reputation as a country where anyone, no matter what their

background, could succeed. All you needed was talent and hard work. For hundreds of years the USA has been associated with the promise of a new and better life. 5. The 29 October 1929 was known as Black Tuesday in America. The huge crash of the stock market brought and end to the prosperity that had characterized the United States throughout the 1920s, and signalled the start of the Great Depression. Unemployment rose from around 3% in 1929 to over 26% by 1934. Many of the poorest members of US society suffered badly, and at one point it was estimated that 34 million men, women and children had no income at all. Many people were evicted from their homes and ended up living in shanty towns. 6. Womens rights Even though women got the vote in 1920 they were still seen as inferior to men. They were discouraged from getting jobs or an education and were expected to fulfil traditional roles as mothers who cook, clean and have children.
