Stevenson's masterpiece of the duality of good and evil in man's nature. It is the tale of the scientist Dr. Jekyll and the drug that transforms him into Mr. Hyde, that loathsome and twisted reincarnation of pure evil. Its chilling horror is evoked by the realistic police-style narrative of its telling, by the desperation of Dr. Jekyll as Mr. Hyde gains increasing control of his life, but most of all by giving voice to our own fears of letting loose the monster within-that part of us drawn to violence, evil, and all that society forbids.
