Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella paints a dark and complex tale about the duality of man's nature. The story explores this contrast of human character through the strange case of Dr. Jekyll. A kind scientist by day, Jekyll discovers a way to transform into the form of Mr. Hyde by night. With a personality who carries all the hidden evil traits Jekyll disdains, Mr. Hyde becomes more difficult to control just as he perpetrates darker and more vicious deeds.Anticipating modern psychology, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a brilliant original study of man's dual nature-as well as an immortal tale of suspense and terror. The book was an immediate success and remains one of Stevenson's best-selling works.

'Der seltsame Fall von Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde' - dieser etwas behäbig klingende Titel läßt kaum vermuten, daß sich dahinter eine der aufregendesten Erzählungen der Weltliteratur verbirgt. Auch der Ruhm des Autors Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), dessen Schatzinsel zu den berühmtesten Abenteuerromanen der Weltliteratur gehört, steht dieser Erwartung eher im Wege. Aber wirklich - Der seltsame Fall gehört zu den Schlüsseltexten unseres Zeitalters. Die Erzählung ist spannend wie ein Kriminalroman - und sie ist in gewisser Weise einer! Darum darf hier über ihren Inhalt auch nichts mitgeteilt werden. Wesentlich zu erwähnen bleibt die Neuübersetzung, die sich ganz besonders dicht in Wortlaut und Atmosphäre am Original orientiert. Das Original ist im Paralleldruck ebenfalls parat!

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. 'I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two.' A London lawyer is drawn into a series of strange occurrences concerning his old friend Henry Jekyll and the despicable stranger Edward Hyde, a man who seems to epitomise the very meaning of evil. What is Hyde's mysterious hold over Jekyll, and what is the reason behind Jekyll's increasingly odd behaviour? The investigations will lead into the dark heart of Victorian London, and of human nature itself, as the shocking truth about Hyde's true identity is finally revealed. Published in 1886 to critical acclaim, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a thrilling exploration of the interplay of good and evil and the terrifying duality that lies within us all. These themes held a constant fascination for Stevenson and are further explored in his short stories Markheim and The Body Snatcher, also included in this book.
