The young Robert Louis Stevenson suffered from repeated nightmares of living a double life, in which by day he worked as a respectable doctor and by night he roamed the back alleys of old-town Edinburgh. In three days of furious writing, he produced a story about his dream existence. His wife found it too gruesome, so he promptly burned the manuscript. In another three days, he wrote it again. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was published as a shilling shocker in 1886, and became an instant classic. In the first six months, 40,000 copies were sold. Queen Victoria read it. Sermons and editorials were written about it. When Stevenson and his family visited America a year later, they were mobbed by reporters at the dock in New York City. Compulsively readable from its opening pages, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is still one of the best tales ever written about the divided self.

This volume includes Stevenson's famous spine-chilling thriller Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as well as Weir of Hermiston, an unfinished novel, whom many consider to be Stevenson's masterpiece. It was cut short by his sudden death in 1894 from a cerebral hemorrhage. THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLLl AND MR HYDE: Dr. Jekyll invented a drug that would change him into the ominous Mr. Hyde. His evil nature, however, became the stronger part of him and to his horror, he no longer needed the formula to transform his appearance. -- WEIR OF HERIMSTON: Set in the time of the Napoleonic Wars, it tells the story of Archie Weir, a youth born into an upper-class Edinburgh family. Because of his Romantic sensibilities and sensitivity, Archie is estranged from his father, who is depicted as the coarse and cruel judge of a criminal court. By mutual consent, Archie is banished from his family of origin and sent to live as the local laird on a family property in the vicinity of the Borders hamlet Hermiston. While serving as the laird, Archie meets and falls in love with Kirstie (Christina). As the two are deepening their relationship, the book breaks off. Confusingly, there are two characters in the novel called Christina, the younger of whom is Archie's sweetheart.

Robert Louis Stevenson s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde A Geography of the Human Mind

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, course: Victorian Literature, language: English, comment: Es handelt sich um eine kurze Seminararbeit, bei der das eigenstandige Entwickeln eines Interpretationsansatzes ohne Zuhilfenahme von Sekundarliteratur gefragt war. Es ist nicht auszuschliessen, dass Gedanken und Aspekte dieser Arbeit auch in der Sekundarliteratur zu finden sind, die vorliegende Arbeit wurde jedoch ohne deren Kenntnis vefasst., abstract: Robert Louis Stevenson's novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde presents a landscape that can be read as a geography of the human mind. The two separate dwelling- places of Dr. Jekyll and his alter ego, Mr. Hyde, can be analyzed in psychoanalytical terms as representing the conscious and the unconscious. The suppressed desires of the unconscious, which are related to a discourse of homosexuality underwriting the novel, return to haunt and ultimately destroy the mind of Dr. Jekyll. This paper will examine how the city functions as a mirror of the human mind. It takes a more general approach at first, analyzing different descriptions of the city throughout the novel. As a second step towards establishing the evidence to support the thesis, it will be necessary to take a closer look at the specific geography of Dr. Jekyll's psyche, arguing that the separate dwelling places of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde represent the conscious and the unconscious in terms of Freudian psychoanalysis. Finally, the paper will examine how this reading allows for an interpretation of Dr. Jekyll's hidden desires as being related to homosexuality. Other interpretations concerning these vices are possible and not mutually exclusive with the one pursued in this paper, as, for example, a reading of Jekyll's mental and physical descent as due to alcoholism and drug abuse. However, a broader analysis taking into account these additional interpretati"
