Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has enthralled audiences for over a hundred years with its mix of Gothic horror, science fiction and thrilling psychological mystery.This definitive new illustrated edition of the Victorian masterpiece, edited by Edgar Award-winner Leslie Klinger, sheds new light on a fascinating literary classic featuring the talented doctor and his monstrous alter ego.
'As Klinger notes in his foreword, Stevenson's novella, "like Frankenstein before it, has been too often simplified, distorted, and refashioned into a warning about good defeated by evil." In fact, as Klinger demonstrates, the story of the seemingly respectable doctor and his vicious, sadistic alter ego is much more complicated... This will instantly become the definitive edition of this complex and influential piece of literature.' Publishers Weekly
