Jekyll and Hyde is the story of good Dr Henry Jekyll, a man of great stature, who only wants to show his amicable side to the society. Torn between good and evil in his nature he is desperately seeking his inner self. He succeeds only when he starts taking his newly invented potion which transforms him into Edward Hyde, an evil man beyond his wildest imagination. Dr Jekyll could be anyone but Hyde if he could choose. Published in 1886 Stevenson s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was an instant bestseller and remains so even today.
