Dr Henry Jekyll fascinated by the dichotomy of good and evil no longer wants to inhibit his dark side He concocts a potion to create the alter ego of Mr Edward Hyde With the burden of evil placed on Hyde Jekyll can now take pleasure in his immoral nefarious fantasiesfree of conscience and guilt Its when Hyde turns to murder that Jekyll realizes how monstrous his impulses are and how hard they are to suppressExploring the nature of shame repression desire and control Stevensons story has so endured that a Jekyll and Hyde personality has become part of our lexicon in understanding our ownsometimes involuntarydualityRevised edition Previously published as The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde this edition of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Classics Edition includes editorial revisions Robert Louis Stevenson had always wanted to write a tale of the good and evil struggle in man and eventually he was able to with this novella which was first published in 1886 It would seem that the author eventually managed to come up with this tale due to a dream that he apparently had and which his wife was to tell his biographer about From thereon then history was made as this soon proved a bestseller and of course Jekyll and Hyde has become a part of the language with for instance a Jekyll and Hyde personalityI should think that even if you have never read this before you will know the basic story as it has become so well known but imagine the first readers of this starting what would seem a mystery tale and then by the end exploding into something much intriguing and frightening A celebrity in his lifetime and admired by many great writers of his age including the likes of Henry James so after his death his status started to wane especially as authors such as Virginia Woolf denigrated his work but even so some of his books always remained popular this being one of themAs we read this we do not really find out much about Dr Jekyll and his apparent friend the odious Mr Hyde who as we read on is wanted for murder An odious man it is only in the closing part of this novella that we actually read of his connection with Dr Jekyll as the full truth emerges for his friend and lawyer Utterson Thus we have a tale that has intrigued many and also been uite influential The dual nature of the characters of the title can open up to all sorts of interpretations even including Scottish Nationalism but usually people concern themselves with the psychological aspect here of someone fighting their baser traits and including mental illness At the time laudanum was in popular usage and this can also thus be seen as a tale of drug addiction and its conseuencesAlways a joy to read this is one of those tales despite being a novella and thus short that you always remember I cannot remember how old I was when I first read this but it has always remained something to come back to time and again and if you have never read this before then you really are in for a treat Rather like Henry James’s ‘The Turn of the Screw’ this is a story that just holds you spellbound and makes you really appreciate the sheer artistry and inventiveness of some authors
