Description

With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Tim Middleton, Head of English Studies, University of Ripon and York.


In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Jekyll discovers a monster. First published to critical acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising 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.


Also included in this volume is Stevenson's 1887 collection of short stories, The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables.


The Merry Men is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; Markheim, the sinister study of the mind of a murderer; Thrawn Janet, a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; Olalla, a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; Will O' the Mill, a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and The Treasure of Franchard, a study of French bourgeois life.

Back cover copy

The doppelganger, the ghostly double infecting the soul, was popular fictional subject for late nineteenth-century writers, and it found its most brilliant realization in Robert Louis Stevenson's story of Dr Jekyll, whose reckless genius allows him to bring his own appalling double to life.

About Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Scotland in 1850. He was the son of an engineer, and he hoped to be an engineer himself. He began training, but his poor health prevented his continuing. Partly because of his health troubles - mainly tuberculosis - he spent a large part of his life outside Britain.
