Description

This book presents Stevenson as a serious pre-modern writer of world stature. It relates his work to that of MacDiarmid, Dostoyevsky, Rilke and Jung, setting it firmly in a European context. Stevenson was a Scottish internationalist, whose French and European connections appealed to writers involved in the Symbolist movement. Concentrating initially on "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde", Stevenson's tale of puritan repression versus unbridled energy, the book uncovers the universal significance of the Hyde figure and studies variations of the character found in Stevenson's other work and throughout European literature.
