The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde can be seen as a story about the concept of good and evil that exists in all of us or a critique on the hypocrisy and double standards of the society and also an interesting study into the mind of the author and into the theories of dualism. First published to critical acclaim in 1886, this mesmerizing thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man’s nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson’s reputation as a writer. London lawyer Utterson is driven to investigate Edward Hyde, the unlikely protégé of his friend Dr Henry Jekyll, suspecting the relationship to be founded on blackmail. The truth is worse than he could have imagined. As the mystery deepens, time appears to be running out for Utterson and Enfield to discover what is really wrong with their friend Dr Jekyll – and the final revelation divulges a ghastly secret that makes us wonder about our ability to truly transform ourselves. This edition contains full notes and includes a short story “Markheim”. This book has been specially formatted for devices that support EPUB3. 1.0
