The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Written by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was first published in 1886. It is the story of a doctor who has two distinct, opposite personalities. He is constantly battling within himself between what is good and what is evil. After drinking a potion of his own creation, Dr Jekyll is transformed into the cruel, remorseless, evil Mr Hyde, representing the hidden side of his own nature. The story personifies the inner conflict existing in humanity as well as the duality of human nature-that good and evil exists in all. Evocative illustrations make the book more interesting.
