The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde & Other Tales
by Robert Louis Stevenson and Caroline McCracken-Flesher




Overview -
This new edition brings a fresh perspective on Stevenson's dark, celebrated evocation of duality: polite society undermined by the weakness deep within itself. Stevenson's drama is as powerful and shrewd today as it was in the late nineteenth century, bringing us universal messages from our past. Shame and shamelessness, lurid behaviour and decorum, all are in conflict as the dark desires of the soul grow ever stronger as Dr Jekyll struggles with his inner self.

Three of Stevenson's other dark tales reveal him to be a shrewd and skillful storyteller - 'The Body Snatcher', 'The Pavilion on the Links', 'The Story of a Lie'.

Flame Tree Collector's Editions present the foundations of speculative fiction, authors without whom the imaginative literature of the twentieth century would not exist, bringing the best and most influential writers into a striking and collectable library. Each book features a new introduction, a short biography and a glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
