Moreover the word “calmly” shows the merciless action of Hyde; normally people wouldn’t act like Hyde, “left the girl screaming on the ground”. This has illustrated the duality in both Jekyll and Hyde because of the animalistic action but doing it calmly by the personality of Jekyll. Then he link this quotes; “With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two”, we could easy recognize the interiors and exteriors of human in Victorian time.

Dr. Jekyll tells the power of evil Mr. Hyde through a letter he wrote to Mr. Utterson, “I began to be aware of a change in the temper of my though, a greater boldness, a contempt of danger, a solution of the bonds of obligation. I looked down; my clothes hung formlessly on my shrunken limbs; the hand that lay on my knee was corded and hairy. I was once more Edward Hyde,” (78). Dr. Jekyll was unable to control his dark self spontaneously, without the aid of his potion and while he was wide awake. Jekyll’s theory of dual nature, is humans being half criminal, and half virtuous.

Stevenson presents Gabriel Utterson at the beginning of the novel to signify his importance as a character; thus, why people can argue that Mr Utterson is the protagonist of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.” Even by using the word “case” in the title, Stevenson suggests that this narrative is somewhat like an official or legal observation by Utterson. Moreover, his respectable profession as a lawyer exacerbates his intelligence and strong morality, which can be further indicated by his name “Gabriel” relatable to the messenger Angel Gabriel.

In the novel, the two characters appear to be two separate individuals, as we read we notice that they are two different individuals living the same body.

The first one is from the point of Robert Ewell, a white man judging and accusing a black man. The second one is Tom Robinson’s, telling the whole story the way he sees it. But still there is no sure evidence that he is innocent. As Harper Lee uses specific stylistic and language devices through different characters at the trial, such as ‘’you’re a mighty good fellow, it seems-did all this for one penny?’’- Mr.Gilmer, the reader slowly starts to sympathize with Tom Robinson and sees the trial from the same point of view as the narrator (Scout Finch) In a way the author manipulates the reader with mainly the language and innocence image of Tom. When Tom comments during a conversation with Mr.Gilmer that he ‘’felt sorry for her (Mayella) ‘’ Lee then widens the vision of Tom as an innocent man with ‘‘the witness realized his mistake and shifted uncomfortably in the chair.’’ In this part Tom Robinsons admits his sorrow for a white woman, which was in that time a theme unspeakable of.
