Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the classic novella of a split personality. Stevenson wrote it in just a few days while sick and bedridden, and famously burned the first draft after his wife suggested it should be written as an allegory and not as a story. He re-wrote it in three to six days, and after a few weeks of editing and revision, he published what would become one of his most famous and best-selling works.
The story follows a London lawyer as he investigates the relationship between a brilliant scientist and a mishappen misanthrope. As the link between the two becomes clearer, Jekyll and Hyde develops into an allegory on the nature of good and evil.

At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life.
"If he be Mr. Hyde," he had thought, "I shall be Mr. Seek."
If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also.

"If he be Mr. Hyde," he had thought, "I shall be Mr. Seek."
It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity
