This senior high school English Literature quiz will challenge you on setting in Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. A text’s setting refers to the location and the time in which its events take place. But the meaning of the term extends beyond these basics. Oftentimes, it can be easy to forget that texts frequently have several settings, since events usually occur in different places and times. Buildings and spaces provide individual settings within the general setting, and these specific settings often contrast with one another.

When do the events of the novel take place?
During the late seventeenth century
During the early eighteenth century
During the early nineteenth century
During the late nineteenth century
The well-educated, professional men of the novel view themselves as occupying the pinnacle of civilization
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is set in which city?
At the beginning of the novel, we meet Mr Utterson and his kinsman, Mr Richard Enfield, taking one of their regular Sunday walks
Which one of the following does NOT characterize London as it is presented in the novel?
The hidden presence of onlookers
Openness and clarity
This section, in which Mr Utterson awaits a glimpse of Mr Hyde, encapsulates the simultaneous busy-ness and solitude of London: "In the course of his nightly patrols, he had long grown accustomed to the quaint effect with which the footfalls of a single person, while he is still a great way off, suddenly spring out distinct from the vast hum and clatter of the city." London is also a place where private deeds are usually observed and discussed
Mr Utterson maintains his vigil by the mysterious door at all hours of the day, waiting to speak to Mr Hyde. At what time of day does he finally surprise the man?
Early morning
Early evening
Many of the novel's key events take place at night. On the occasion Mr Hyde finally appears, it is a "fine dry night, frost in the air, the streets as clean as a ballroom floor, the lamps, unshaken by any wind, drawing a regular pattern of light and shadow." Mr Hyde is an anomaly in this clean, ordered and calm atmosphere
"This brought them to the fireside, where the easy chair was drawn cozily up, and the tea things stood ready to the sitter's elbow, the very sugar in the cup. There were several books on a shelf; one lay beside the tea things open." In Mr Utterson's and Mr Poole's view, who would belong in this cozy scene?
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde
Both men
Neither man
The reader, unaware by this point that Jekyll and Hyde are the same being, is likely to picture Dr Jekyll in this scene, having only just left his chair a moment before
The first chapter of the novel is called 'Story of the Door'. To what door does the title refer?
Dr Jekyll's front door
The front door of Mr Hyde's house
Mr Utterson's front door
The door to Dr Jekyll's lab
Mr Enfield tells his story of following Mr Hyde to that door, but does not realize that the door is an entrance to Dr Jekyll's lab. It is also known as the dissecting room door
"The far greater proportion of the building was occupied by the theater, which filled almost the whole ground story and was lighted from above, and by the cabinet, which formed an upper story at one end and looked upon the court. A corridor joined the theater to the door on the by-street; and with this, the cabinet communicated separately by a second flight of stairs." Which of the following statements is correct?
Half of the building is used for scientific experimentation, while the other half of the building offers homey comforts
Dr Jekyll's property has a system of intercommunicating passageways, stairways, and a courtyard allowing access at the back and the front
Dr Jekyll's home is a metaphor for himself
All of the above
The property represents the two "halves" of Dr Jekyll's personality. "Cabinet" here means a private room
"Two doors from one corner, on the left hand going east, the line was broken by the entry of a court; and just at that point, a certain sinister block of building thrust forward its gable on the street. It was two stories high; showed no window, nothing but a door on the lower story and a blind forehead of discolored wall on the upper; and bore in every feature, the marks of prolonged and sordid negligence." Which language relates the building to Mr Hyde?
Broken, sinister, thrust, lower
Blind forehead, bore, feature, sordid
Discoloured, marks, prolonged, negligence
All of the above
The building is personified and the back entrance to it represents Mr Hyde, who shocks Mr Utterson by possessing a key and having the freedom to come and go from Dr Jekyll's property. It is highly symbolic that Jekyll's home has two well-used entrances: the front, public entrance is associated with the "good" or "civilized" personality, while the back, lower, lab entrance is associated with the disturbing, brutish Mr Hyde
"Some two months before the murder of Sir Danvers, I had been out for one of my adventures, had returned at a late hour, and woke the next day in bed with somewhat odd sensations. It was in vain I looked about me; in vain I saw the decent furniture and tall proportions of my room in the square; in vain that I recognized the pattern of the bed curtains and the design of the mahogany frame; something still kept insisting that I was not where I was." Which of the following is causing Dr Jekyll's consternation in this recollection?
The drugs he takes to change into Mr Hyde have made him unable to perceive the world correctly
He has woken up in Mr Hyde's bedroom, but the furniture appears as that of his own house in the square
He has woken up in his own bedroom, unexpectedly inhabiting the body of Mr Hyde
He has woken up as Dr Jekyll, but is not in the correct bedroom
Dr Jekyll believes he can contain Mr Hyde and keep him in a separate world; he is shocked to go to bed as Jekyll and wake up as Hyde
Where does Mr Hyde have a house?
Dr Jekyll views Soho as an appropriately shady and disreputable place where a man such as Mr Hyde might be expected to live
