Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Sterling Classics
by Robert Louis Stevenson, Scott McKowen (Illustrator)
Library Binding, 96 pages
Price: $9.95

The doppelgänger, the ghostly double infecting the soul, was a popular fictional subject for late nineteenth-century writers, and it found its most brilliant realization in Robert Louis Stevenson's story of Dr. Jekyll, whose reckless genius allows him to bring his own appalling double to life. The finest horror story in our language, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is also a metaphysical fairy-tale of stunning perspicacity.
