about

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-written This is, without a doubt, the most beautifully worded book I have read in a long time. The English language is truly a spectacular thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good Stories Jekyll and Hyde are two very well-known names, even to people who've never read the book. This edition has a great selection of Victorian gothic novellas. Not only is Jekyll and Hyde a fantastic, creepy, and interesting story about the horrors mankind is capable of, but the other short stories that are included are great as well, like The Body Snatcher. If you like Victorian literature or creepy stories (or both!) this is definitely something you would want on your bookshelf.
