The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Other Tales

'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 relationship with 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 on Dreams' 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.

Portrait
Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Scotland in 1850. He was the son of an engineer, and he hoped to be an engineer himself. He began training, but his poor health prevented his continuing. Partly because of his health troubles - mainly tuberculosis - he spent a large part of his life outside Britain.
Roger Luckhurst is the author of The Invention of Telepathy 1870-1901 (OUP, 2002) and co-editor of The Fin de Si'ecle: A Reader in Cultural History c. 1880-1900 (OUP, 2000) with Sally Ledger. For OWC he has edited Late Victorian Gothic Tales, R. L. Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady.
