The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Robert Louis Stevenson

The cover for the Standard Ebooks edition of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson

Description

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the classic novella of split personality. Stevenson wrote it in just a few days while sick and bedridden, and famously burned the first draft after his wife suggested it should be written as an allegory and not as a story. He re-wrote it in three to six days, and after a few weeks of editing and revision he published what would become one of his most famous and best-selling works.

The story follows a London lawyer as he investigates the relationship between a brilliant scientist and a misshapen misanthrope. As the link between the two becomes clearer, Jekyll and Hyde develops into an allegory on the nature of good and evil.
