The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
“When it comes to classics, we often feel we know the story without ever having read it for ourselves. Especially with the abundance of retellings and allusions in other media. This was definitely true for me when it came to this novel, but I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong! I may have known the overarching plot but the details, suspense, and urgency had me sneaking away to see how it all played out. This is one classic not to sleep on. ”Ashlee,
Robert Louis Stevenson's masterpiece of the duality of good and evil in man's nature sprang from the darkest recesses of his own unconscious—during a nightmare from which his wife awakened him, alerted by his screams. More than a hundred years later, this tale of the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll and the drug that unleashes his evil, inner persona—the loathsome, twisted Mr. Hyde—has lost none of its ability to shock.
Its realistic police-style narrative chillingly relates Jekyll's desperation as Hyde gains control of his soul—and gives voice to our own fears of the violence and evil within us. Written before Freud's naming of the ego and the id, Stevenson's enduring classic demonstrates a remarkable understanding of the personality's inner conflicts—and remains the irresistibly terrifying stuff of our worst nightmares.
