Read full description of the books Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde:Dr. Jekyll, a "large, well-made, smooth-faced man of fifty," occasionally feels he is battling between the good and evil within himself, thus leading to the struggle between his dual personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He has spent a great part of his life trying to repress evil urges that were not fitting for a man of his stature. He creates a potion in an attempt to mask this hidden evil within his personality. However, in doing so, Jekyll is transformed into the smaller, younger, cruel, remorseless, evil Edward Hyde. Dr. Jekyll has many friends and has a friendly personality, but as Mr. Hyde, he becomes mysterious and violent.
Read information about the authorRobert Louis Balfour Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of English literature. He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov.
Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson's popularity and allow him a place in the Western canon.
