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.

Love this book! We had to read this in 8th grade and, thinking about both this book and S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders" It was an amazing year!

Когда захочется потворствовать своим дурным и потаенным наклонностям, буду вспоминать этот роман😏

Довольно сложная лексика, но красивая, оригинальный текст стоит прочтения.

There was never a day when, if you had said to me, ‘Je­kyll, my life, my hon­our, my reason, de­pend upon you,’ I would not have sac­ri­ficed my left hand to help you. Lanyon my life, my hon­our, my reason, are all at your mercy; if you fail me to­night, I am lost. You might sup­pose, after this pre­face, that I am go­ing to ask you for some­thing dis­hon­our­able to grant. Judge for your­self.
In the morning before office hours, at noon when business was plenty, and time scarce, at night under the face of the fogged city moon, by all lights and at all hours of solitude or concourse, the lawyer was to be found on his chosen post.
It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity
