I think I'm getting a bit better at making these videos now. I produced this video for my GCSE pupils who have not been to Edinburgh but really need to know how the city influenced the writing of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
for their English Literature exam.
Robert Louis Stevenson had a love-hate relationship with the city; Edinburgh's polarities of the Old and New Town, of the very religious and the deeply sinful, of the scientific and the superstitious, profoundly inform the pages of his most successful novella.
As always comments welcome, although I hope this one won't merit a Toby Young rant in the Telegraph as did my previous effort on modernising Shakespeare. Admittedly, the quality of my video wasn't great, but I still feel the points I made were valid and enduring ones.
