The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson . 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; completely opposite levels of morality.

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 MichiganFrom the Publisher:
