'Instantly the spirit of hell awoke in me and raged...I was suddenly struck through the heart by a cold thrill of terror.' Stevenson's short novel, published in 1886, became an instant classic. It was a Gothic horror that originated in a feverish nightmare, whose hallucinatory setting in the murky back streets of London gripped a nation mesmerized by crime and violence. The respectable doctor's mysterious relationshipwith his disreputable associate is finally revealed in one of the most original and thrilling endings in English literature. In addition to Jekyll and Hyde, this edition also includes a number of short stories and essays written by Stevenson in the 1880s, minor masterpieces of fiction and comment: 'The Body Snatcher', 'Markheim', and 'Olalla' feature grave-robbing, a sinister double, and degeneracy, while 'A Chapter onDreams' and 'A Gossip on Romance' discuss artistic creation and the 'romance' form. Appendixes provide extracts from contemporary writings on personality disorder, which set Stevenson's tale in its full historical context.… (més)

Not sure what to say about this book.
I saw the movie and must say, that that made a bigger impression on me than this book. Maybe because the actually telling of the story was quite factual, of cold, or distant I didn't get as involved in the book in the strange case as I might have otherwise. Maybe I had set my expectations too high, I don't know.
If I'm totally honest, while writing this review nearly a week after finishing the book, I have a hard time to recall exactly the how, who and when. And that about sums it up for me, unfortunately. ( )

It's a bit hard to comment on a classic that has resulted in numerous adaptations. I found the stories in this book to be creepy and the essays interesting. ( )

Jekyll is a well written tale with a spooky sense running throughout it. One you can get through in a day but I just did not feel inclined to read all the other short tales. Maybe I will dip back into this one. Just not that much of a fan of short stories I guess. ( )

From the Introduction, by Roger Luckhurst:
"Stevenson veered constantly between high literary ambition and writing in commercial forms for market rates, and many of his critics were confused about where to place each work. Stevenson was himself unsure at times, and frequently misjudged things. PRINCE OTTO, a novel on which he spent five years to secure his reputation as a 'serious' novelist, was not well received; JEKYLL AND HYDE, dreamt up, written, rewritten, and published all in under ten weeks, became his masterpiece. It was also a commercial success, selling 40,000 copies in England in six months, and innumerable tens of thousands of pirated copies in America, where the book was a popular sensation. This confusion over incompatible forms of high and low literary value was not unusual in the late Victorian era, as authors as diverse as Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Joseph Conrad sought to negotiate the new commercial forms and the increasing professionalization of literature (including newfangled things like literary agents and limited international copyright). The distinction of high and low literature, as we understand them in the modern sense, was still emergent, so that this was a moment when a lowly Gothic romance might conjoin unexpectedly with a species of psychological realism to produce a JEKYLL AND HYDE." (Kindle location 96-108)

Having never read any Robert Louis Stevenson, I decided to remedy this by reading Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, together with two of his other short stories contained within the same volume. They are all well-written, with likeable and realistically flawed characters. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is perhaps the best of the three, which all have something of the moral tale about them, but the other two are also worth reading, particularly The Treasure of Franchard. ( )
