Robert Louis Stevenson ✓ 5 Summary

Edly benign essence whereas Hyde is outwardly kind and gregarious the dwarfish Hyde causes an instant sense of evulsion in those who meets and is cruel and capricious Yet as Nabokov states the characters aren t as binary as you would think neither character is wholly good or evil instead the are entwined with one another Jekyll being able to let go of the sense of unfettered freedom which Hyde is able to Elephant Dance realise and Hyde is unable to let of the sense ofesponsibility and espectability which keep his vices in check The London in which the book is set comes alive during THE NIGHT MACABRE AND GHOST LIKE ITS EMPTY STREETS night macabre and ghost like its empty streets under the pale glow of a diaphanous moonlight act as the centre stage for Hyde s monstrosities That the novel is told mainly from the perspective of the conventional Utterson only adds to the strange beauty which Stevenson is able to interweave in the novel it is as if the creation of Hyde creates a sense of poetry in Utterson s prosaic life the ipples of Dr Jekyll s experiments impacting on the wider world around him The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is one of the greatest Victorian novels a novel which transcends the conventions of the area and creates something ineffably majestic IntroductionHorace Walpole s The Castle of Otranto was originally published on Christmas Eve 1764 and would serve as a primary origin in holiday publication It s also considered one of the first gothic horror stories Traditionally the genre was characterized by settings in or around ancient castles or monasteries deep in the gloomy forests and involving proud Italian or Spanish nobles and the machinations of corrupt ecclesiastics This was a uickly growing literary trend Some willing participants include Anne Radcliffe s The Mysteries of Udolpho Matthew Lewis Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Maturin and much later Bram Stoker s Dracula All of these works and many others featured Walpole s signature setting and era which almost always took place in Catholic countries Robert Lewis Stevenson however changed the face of the horror genre He accomplished this feat by incorporating many uniue traits but two things that proved most effective were 1 modernizing his horrific tale set in what was then present day London and 2 he veered away from the countryside and allowed the action to unravel in the city With its urban surroundings all the action intrigue and mystery had a chance to earnestly breathe perhaps for the first time and took on a menacing shape all its own In this way it feels all too Geuze Amp Kriek real Stevenson supplanted theeader in his world his locale You Barn Dance reight there alongside Utterson Jekyll and Hyde Also prevalent and valid here are adeuate doses of psychology thus amplifying the suspense and fodder for many stimulating conversations a sprinkling of philosophy science Religion Two Subjects That Ordinarily two subjects that ordinarily each other but somehow Stevenson made work and a decently developed cast Combine all these stellar ingredients and you have the formula for a cataclysmic masterpiece One that only Stevenson could have written Thematically the author showcased his Secrets Of The Heart Aincourts Hearts 3 raw talent and maturity as he continued to delve deep into ideas he s begun to explore in The Body Snatcher and Olalla Like the latter a largely metaphorical tale of vampirism that emphasizes forms of atavistic forms Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde marked aeturn to similar themes The masks we wear to conceal our insecurities and sin are very clear here as is Stevenson s passion for his art It went deeper than that we were all startled by this transformation as if a man had The Lore Of The Old Testament risen from the dead A mere two years prior to what would become his most beloved novel he wrote The Body Snatcher therein beginning to explore the transformation of self personal identity and what it meant to lead double lives In Jekyll and Hyde however his vision was fullyealized and developed his craft honed 5 stars The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde This was a The Disambiguation Of Susan reead for me I first ead it in high school but ecalled very little of its details The bare minimum On Ritualism really and what I didemember proved unreliable So when the buddy Slavery And Serfdom In The Middle Ages read came up Stepheny Holly Anne Tadiana Jeff Delee and myself I was all for it and greatlylooked forward to it Thanks again guys it was loads of fun and proved veryewarding The short novel is presented in many ways as a legal case as the narrator Mr Utterson is a lawyer propositioned by Mr Enfield The two couldn t be different Wing on contemporary theories of class evolution criminality and secret lives Also in this volume are The Body Snatcher which charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice and Olalla a tale of vampirism and The Beast Within which features a beautif. ,
