about

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886) by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) “is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often spuriously called "split personality", referred to in psychiatry as dissociative identify disorder, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality. In this case, there are two personalities within Dr Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil; completely opposite levels of morality. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.” (Citation from Wikipedia: The free Encyclopaedia)

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Classic Written with age-apprpriate style, this story of moral aptitude focuses on the good and evil that men do, and the secret desires they hold within. It makes us wonder, what if we had no inhibitions to our earthly pleasures and, lacking conscience, would we be the same person we are today?
