Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Character Role Analysis

Mr. Enfield and Dr. Lanyon

These guys are the salt and pepper to Jekyll and Utterson’s meat and potato. They provide variety and color to the cast of characters, as well as alternative points of view. Dr. Lanyon shows us that Dr. Jekyll’s scientific practices are not necessarily widely shared or respected, and Mr. Enfield shows that some people are passive, inactive, and not likely to be overwhelmed by curiosity any time soon.
