Above them, nefarious clouds gathered. It was meant to have been a pleasant day, a blissful day. Yet something was wrong: something melancholic hung in the air. Just hours before the sky had been bright. No hint given that danger lay ahead.

An Inspector Calls Mr Birling says, Fiddlesticks! We dont live alone. We are members of one body. Bees in a hive unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable There are millions and millions of John and Eva Smiths Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Master Hyde.must have secrets of his own; black secrets, by the look of him ape-like fury a great-flame of anger A good way of learning quotes is by writing them down and testing yourself, or getting someone to test you. The next slides are some of the quotes taken from the English Stretch and Challenge session on the School website. Have a go!

Enfield, describing Hyde to Utterson, "There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something downright detestable." Utterson, speaking to himself, "If he be Mr. Hyde, I shall be Mr. Seek." Jekyll, reflecting on mankind, "All human beings... are commingled out of good and evil." When Stevenson depicts Hyde as staring with injected eyes and suggests the dreadful contortions of his features as they melt and alter," he evokes the ghastliness of the moment of transformation Jekyll, continuing his description of his own desire to be Hyde, "...and it was as an ordinary secret sinner that I at last fell before the assaults of temptation." In thunder, lightning, or in rain? Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air. Macbeth does murder

sleep: the innocent sleep, too full of the milk of human kindness blood will have blood. Macbeth What's done cannot be undone. (Lady Macbeth, Act 5 Scene 1) Theres daggers in mens smiles. Arthur Birling is a heavy looking, rather portentous man

Sheila 'Hes giving us the rope- so that well hang ourselves. Sheila Mother, I think that was cruel and vile
