Stevenson, Robert Louis: Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories


1 varastossa


”’Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’, first published in 1886, is Robert Louis Stevenson’s great tale of hubris and evil. Dr. Jekyll tampers with the order of things: by means of a drug he unleashes the evil within himself, becoming the murderous Mr. Hyde. When the drug can no longer keep the safe self of Jekyll from transforming into the monster  Hyde, the only way to end the nightmare of metamorphosis is suicide. Together with Stevenson’s classic novella, this selection also includes three other stories of diabolic dualism and corruption – ’The Body Snatcher’, ’Markheim’ and ’Olalla’ – and concludes with ’The Ebb-Tide’, a seedy account of three down-and-outs in the South Seas and their grim confrontation with Attwater, Stevenson’s Kurtz. Stevenson, the born story-teller, appears in this volume in his full sophistication as a subtle explorer charting human darkness.”
