The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Dover Thrift Editions)

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Dover Thrift Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This intriguing combination of fantasy thriller and moral allegory depicts the gripping struggle of two opposing personalities — one essentially good, the other evil — for the soul of one man. Its tingling suspense and intelligent and sensitive portrayal of man's dual nature reveal Stevenson as a novelist of great skill and originality, whose power to terrify and move us remains, over a century later, undiminished.

Synopsis:

This intriguing novel, both fantasy thriller and moral allegory, depicts the struggle of two opposing personalities — one essentially good, the other evil — for the soul of one man.

Synopsis:

A humane scientist attempts to explore the most loathsome forces of evil behind the doors of his London laboratory.

Synopsis:

Stevenson's preoccupation with 'that strong sense of man's double being' comes to the fore in the other stories included in this gripping selection. 'The Body Snatcher' and 'Markheim' both have protagonists for whom there is no clear borderline between decency and wickedness, innocence and guilt. Other kinds of dualism ruin through tales written in the Scots dialect.
