The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde : And Other Tales of Terror
by Robert Louis Stevenson and Robert Mighall and Robert Mighall




Overview -
Stevenson's famous exploration of humanity's basest capacity for evil

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde have become synonymous with the idea of a split personality. More than a morality tale, this dark psychological fantasy is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution, criminality, and secret lives. Also in this volume are The Body Snatcher, which charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice, and Olalla, a tale of vampirism and the beast within, with a beautiful woman at its center.
