Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the original title of a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson that was first published in 1886. The work is commonly known today as The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde.The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often spuriously called "split personality", referred to in psychiatry as dissociative identity disorder, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality. In this case, there are two personalities within Dr Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

Review:

"Pull[s] out all the stops."-"New Yorker" "Moser's small, stirring wood engravings will help draw horror fans to the classic novel that has popularized the concept of the double. . . . If you haven't reread it recently, you may be astonished by its suspensefulness and its disquieting power."-"Booklist" "Pull[s] out all the stops."2; "New Yorker" "The dozen wood engravings by Moser will knock you out. . . . You must own it!"2; "Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction" "Moser7;s small, stirring wood engravings will help draw horror fans to the classic novel that has popularized the concept of the double. . . . If you haven7;t reread it recently, you may be astonished by its suspensefulness and its disquieting power."2; "Booklist" "This classic tale . . . addresses the duality in man7;s nature and is here illustrated with twelve atmospheric woodcuts by Barry Moser that underscore the darkness of Stevenson7;s tale and continue Moser7;s legacy of bringing new life to the classics."2; "Bloomsbury Review" "Moser's small, stirring wood engravings will help draw horror fans to the classic novel that has popularized the concept of the double. . . . If you haven't reread it recently, you may be astonished by its suspensefulness and its disquieting power."--"Booklist" "Pull[s] out all the stops."--"New Yorker"

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.
