Mr It was aman of the name of Hyde. Hm," said Mr. Utterson. What sort of a man is he to see?"

Enfield and the lawyer were on the other side of the by-street; butwhen they came abreast of the entry, the former lifted up his cane andpointed. Did you ever remark that door?" he asked; and when his companion hadreplied in the affirmative. But the doctor's casewas what struck me. He was the usual cut and dry apothecary, of noparticular age and colour, with a strong Edinburgh accent and about asemotional as a bagpipe. It was aman of the name of Hyde. What sort of a man is he to see?"

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a gothic novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1886. The work is also known as The Strange Case of Jekyll Hyde, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde. It is about a London legal practitioner named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde

Mr. Hyde shrank back with a hissing intake of the breath.

That evening Mr. Utterson came home to his bachelor house in sombre spirits and sat down to dinner without relish. Such unscientific balderdash,’ added the doctor, flushing suddenly purple, ‘would have estranged Damon and Pythias. This little spirit of temper was somewhat of a relief to Mr. Mr. But his fear was only momentary; and though he did not look the lawyer in the face, he answered coolly enough: ‘That is my name. What do you want?’ ‘I see you are going in,’ returned the lawyer.

Worse still, Dr Jekyll is unwilling to listen to stories of Hyde’s chilling behaviour, and retreats into his . As would seem fitting for a tale as strange as this, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde comes with a number of literary legends attached.

Worse still, Dr Jekyll is unwilling to listen to stories of Hyde’s chilling behaviour, and retreats into his laboratory work when confronted. One states that gruesome scenes from the story first appeared to Stevenson as nightmares.

Adaptations of Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll and the misanthropic Mr.

Mr Dr. jekyll was quite at ease.

Hyde was pale and dwarfish, he gave an impression of deformity without any nameable malfor-mation, he had a displeasing smile, he had borne himself to the lawyer with a sort of murderous mixture of timidity and boldness, and he spoke with a husky, whispering and somewhat broken voice; all these were points against him, but not all of these together could. Dr. A FORTNIGHT later, by excellent good fortune, the doctor gave one of his pleasant dinners to some five or six old cronies, all intelligent, reputable men and all judges of good wine; and Mr. Utterson so contrived that he remained behind after the others had departed.

Hyde angrily replies that he knows for a fact that Jekyll never told Utterson anything about him and promptly disappears into the building. After leaving this scene, Utterson goes to see Dr. Jekyll, but Poole, Jekyll's butler, reports that the doctor is not at home. From this conversation, Utterson gleans that Jekyll's house, around the corner from the mysterious door, is L-shaped, and that Hyde's mysterious door is actually an entrance to Jekyll's old dissecting room.

Comments to eBook Doctor Jekyll and Mr.Hyde
Worla
A very strong re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story; that is inventively adapted. Ideal for an ensemble cast

When reviewing a paperback edition of a classic novel like "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", any comments are really about the additional material besides the main literary work itself, as "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" needs no recommendation from me. The additional material here is the afterword by Jerome Charyn, titled "Who is Hyde?". Charyn's tone is rather chatty, but nonetheless he raises interesting issues about hidden subtexts related to Stevenson's own life. Likewise, he notes that the story repays close reading to details and even single sentences, as clues to unexplained facets of the narrative, such as what Sir Danvers Carew was talking to Hyde about in the street before Hyde attacks Carew, and simultaneously, what the maid saw (the maid being the only female in the novel). Charyn tries at times almost to titillate readers by raising possible undercurrents of repressed sexuality, or even homosexuality, in the narrative.

Overall, a good edition of this classic story, even if my copy had one typo ("Harry Jekyl"), and it is best truly to read the Afterword after the novel, and not before.
