Contains: 'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde', 'The Body Snatcher', and 'Olalla' Stevenson's story is one of the most famous works of horror fiction of all time and the names of Jekyll and Hyde have become synonymous with the idea of the split personality. As an exploration of the human potential for evil and bestiality, the story is very much a product of its time and this new edition reveals the scientific and literary context of Stevenson's work. 'The Body Snatcher' is charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice and 'Olalla' is a tale of vampirism and 'the beast within' with a beautiful woman at its centre.

Review:

Praise for previous editions:

“Martin Danahay provides an authoritative text, an excellent introductory commentary, an up-to-date bibliography, and a well-chosen set of contextualizing appendices. For an in-depth understanding of Stevenson’s masterpiece of horror, this is the text of choice.” — Patrick Brantlinger, Indiana University

“Martin Danahay’s edition of Jekyll and Hyde is a treasure trove of biographical, cultural, and historical materials. It makes a number of important contexts for interpretation available through its accessible but intriguing assemblage of ancillary documents. It cannot fail to be the inspiration for deeper investigations of a masterpiece that is itself at the crossroads of Victorian anxieties about sex, class, psychology, evolution, and the rise of popular culture.” — John Kucich, University of Michigan

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
