Robert Louis Stevenson

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the classic novella of a split personality. Stevenson wrote it in just a few days while sick and bedridden, and famously burned the first draft after his wife suggested it should be written as an allegory and not as a story. He re-wrote it in three to six days, and after a few weeks of editing and revision, he published what would become one of his most famous and best-selling works.
The story follows a London lawyer as he investigates the relationship between a brilliant scientist and a mishappen misanthrope. As the link between the two becomes clearer, Jekyll and Hyde develops into an allegory on the nature of good and evil.

    Love this book! We had to read this in 8th grade and, thinking about both this book and S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders" It was an amazing year!
