Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

ISBN: 9781843910701

Author: Robert Louis Stevenson    Publisher: Hesperus Press

Dr Henry Jekyll has been obsessed since early manhood by the uneasy duality of good and evil he senses in himself and others, and is driven - to his peers' dismay - to tamper with the mysterious and transcendental side of science. The respected doctor becomes inexplicably silent and reclusive, while at the same time the terrifying Mr Edward Hyde begins to stalk the streets of London...At heart a chilling tale of the perils of ambition and hubris, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde reflects many of the preoccupations of Stevenson's own Victorian milieu - the dangers of a morbidly repressive society, and the post-Darwinian fear of man's beast nature.
