Gothic horror at its best. --Daily Express

Reseña del editor:

Robert Louis Stevenson explores the very nature of man in this classic horror novel. Why did you wake me? I was dreaming a fine bogey tale. Robert Louis Stevenson s masterpiece of the duality of good and evil in man s nature sprang from the darkest recesses of his own unconscious during a nightmare from which his wife awakened him, alerted by his screams. More than a hundred years later, this tale of the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll and the drug that unleashes his evil, inner persona the loathsome, twisted Mr. Hyde has lost none of its ability to shock. Its realistic police-style narrative chillingly relates Jekyll s desperation as Hyde gains control of his soul and gives voice to our own fears of the violence and evil within us. Written before Freud s naming of the ego and the id, Stevenson s enduring classic demonstrates a remarkable understanding of the personality s inner conflicts and remains the irresistibly terrifying stuff of our worst nightmares.Includes the Famous Cornell Lecture onDr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Vladimir Nabokov
