1. Write a literary analysis convincing the public that the book, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde should/should not be
removed from the school’s reading list and public library shelves. Accurately incorporate evidence from the
text in MLA format for support. (Do not just summarize. A summary should be a very small part of this
analysis. Think about what the book does for readers. What value does it hold, or what value is it missing?
DO NOT SUMMARIZE. You will need to use direct quotes to craft a strongly written essay. This means you
will need in-text citations and a work cited page. In order to do this correctly, see the example below. We
soon see Dr. Jekyll mingling with friends again: “Now that the evil influence had been withdrawn, a new life
began for Dr. Jekyll” (Stevenson). Hyde is seemingly out of the picture at this time, which allows Jekyll to
recover his former life.
