Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
A powerful and thrilling account of man’s dual nature. “Edward Hyde, alone in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil.” The mysterious association between respectable Dr Henry Jekyll and despicable lowlife Edward Hyde is a puzzle to Dr Jekyll’s friends, including his lawyer Gabriel Utterson. Where Jekyll is sociable, hardworking and pious, Hyde is a violent criminal, a wild hedonist. When Hyde beats a member of Parliament to death, Utterson is determined to discover the ties that bind the two men together. . .
Robert Louis Stevenson’s account of man’s capacity for evil is as powerful today as it was on first publication in 1886.
The classic tale has inspired film and television adaptations as well as numerous retellings
