      Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of English literature He was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov.Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson s popularity and allow him a place in the Western canon.

    1. It came about that Edward Hyde was so much smaller, slighter, and younger than Henry Jekyll Even as good shone upon the countenance of the one, evil was written broadly and plainly on the face of the other Evil besides which I must still believe to be the lethal side of man had left on that body an imprint of deformity and decay And yet when I looked upon that ugly idol in the glass, I was conscious of no repugnance rather of a leap of welcome This too, was myself Richard Mansfield was mostly kn [...]

    2. OH BOY, OH BOY, PEOPLE I HAVE A NEW FAVOURITE This edition came with two stories, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and The Bottle Imp, and they were both awesome let s talk about them I m so excited I can t contain myself.Jekyll So Well Crafted From beginning to end the story was engaging and the themes where quite straightforward, but I really love that in writing see George Orwell is my favourite author I like it when authors aren t bogging their messages down in unneeded subtleties S [...]

    3. Pfft.This Stevenson guy totally ripped off Stan Lee s Hulk character I mean, did this dude seriously think he could get away with what basically boils down to a copy paste job of one of the most iconic literary characters in comics I Think Not.Stan, my friend, you have a real chance at winning a copyright infringement lawsuit view spoiler For the love of all that s good and holy, please don t correct me in the comments Hello Joking It s obvious that Mr Stevenson s real inspiration for this short [...]

    4. KUDOS, KUDOS and KUDOS to you, Mr Stevenson First, for bringing me happy than a Slip N Slide on a scorching summer day by providing Warner Bros with the inspiration for one of my favorite cartoons, Hyde and Go Tweet I mean who didn t love giant, cat eating Tweety Hyde Second, and seriously, when I tardily returned to your classic gothic novella as an adult, you once again red lined my joy meter with the strength and eloquence of your story craft You story is the gift that keeps on giving.In b [...]

    5. The appearances superficiality motif appears as early on as the first sentence in this tense, tight, but ultimately convoluted smear of a novella Count on countenance for good sturdy bones in a story of detection yet Plus there are really nice framing devices on display here, a check mark always in my book, like the letters within letters narrative, a nifty exercise, which is mighty cool Here, my favorite sentence from the Robert Louis Stevenson classic Jekyll had than a father s interest Hyde [...]

    6. Robert Louis Stevenson was a man who knew how to play his audience Utterson, the primary point of view character for this novel, is a classic Victorian gentleman he is honest, noble and trustworthy he is the last reputable acquaintance of down going men like Henry Jekyll So, by having a character who evokes the classic feelings of Victorian realism narrate the abnormal encounterings, it gives it credibility it gives it believability thus, the story is scarier because if a man such as Utterson is [...]

    7. What I learned reading Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde By Jeff1 Some things are better left unsaid Really Who knows how Hyde indulged himself Hookers Pirating Running an orphan sweat shop Booze Opium Ripping the Do Not Remove under Penalty of Law labels from mattresses 2 Never have a nosy lawyer as a best friend Who the hell hangs out with lawyers 3 My evil Hyde would not be a top hat wearing, monkey like Juggernaut Sorry, he would be Dean Martin esque, a la The Nutty Professor 4 How in need Victorian En [...]

    8. After the overblown Frankenstein and the undercooked Dracula, it s pleasant to find that the language and pacing of the third great pillar of horror is so forceful and deliberate especially since I was disappointed by Stevenson s other big work, Treasure Island But then, this is a short story, and it s somewhat easier to carry off the shock, horror, and mystery over fewer pages instead of drawing it out like Shelley and Stoker into a grander moralizing tale.But Stevenson still manages to get in [...]

    9. It seems like I ve been familiar with the good Dr Jekyll and the evil Mr Hyde all my life, but the thing that most struck me, once I finally got around to actually reading this classic, is other than their outward appearance how alike these two aspects of the same man actually are Dr Jekyll has always been aware of the duality in his character he admits to some apparently fairly serious youthful indiscretions, and even when he consciously puts his vices behind him for a time, he always feels the [...]

    10. IF ONLY the revelation halfway through this had been unknown to me before reading it, I probably would have enjoyed this book It was good, but knowing what the twist is can really bring a story down for me.This book is also very simple and to the point, which isn t always my favourite style of writing I would have enjoyed for the story to be drawn out, preferably with an addition of at least another hundred pages.

    11. A veeeeeeeery short buddy read with Buddy Loooooove, Too much Buddy Love aka I want to be called The Nutty Professor, I love everybody Buddy Love, What did I do to deserve this Buddy Love , Gimmie some Buddy Love.aaaaaand My brand new Buddy Love Whew Did I get everyone I am not a classic book reader I fall under the category that some snobbish readers would call a fluffy readera reader for entertainment purposes only Not a reader for intellectual growth The classics were read in my high school a [...]

    12. El Se or pregunt a Ca n D nde est tu hermano l respondi No lo s , acaso soy el guardi n de mi hermano Este genial libro de Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson es lo que yo llamo un cl sico con todas las letras Uno de esos cl sicos que demuestra que no necesita tener mil p ginas para transformarse en algo inolvidable Menos de cien p ginas le bastaron a esta peque a pero gran novela de Stevenson para tomar lo mejor del Romanticismo y la tem tica del doble y crear una historia con el suspense necesario [...]

    13. Do you know what a Jekyll and Hyde character is Of course you do It is one of the descriptions, originally in a piece of literature, which has now become accepted in our vernacular And there are many renditions of the story, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and countless references to it in all aspects of life Quite an achievement for a slim Victorian volume written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, and published in 1886 Man is not truly one, but truly two So asserts Dr Je [...]

    14. The story is widely known and very influential It was retold and replayed countless number of times by practically everywhere and everybody, including one of the best cartoon series of all the time, Looney Tunes For this reason people writing blurbs for the book decided it is quite fine to take a lazy route and give spoiler right away At least in my opinion something revealed only in the last chapter should be considered a spoiler I am going to assume there are people who have no clue what the b [...]

    15. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde written in 1886 by Robert Louis Stevenson So here s how naive I was years ago and keep in mind I was an English major who loved the classics I d read some short stories about Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as a teenager, maybe saw some video or tv versions can t quite remember Sopho year in college, this is listed on the assigned syllabus for one of my courses And I m like I think there s a mistake Stevenson wrote Treasure Island He [...]

    16. Man is not truly one, but truly two Dr Jekyll attains through his experience with being both himself and Mr Hyde that there are actually two sides to him He claims that people, as far as he can tell, are made up of two sides good and evil.But is it really true Is a good and dignified person, good and dignified because that is what s he is supposed to be Because that is the way s he is expected to be Does everyone have a secret dark side that they desperately keep in their closet Does this side h [...]

    17. I have become a monster I must find a place where I can hide That s it I shall call myself DUN DUN DUUUUN Mr Where I can The above is paraphrased from a Morecambe Wise Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde sketch, they don t often make me laugh, but this one is gold Not so much The Strange Case as the Overly Familiar Case The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is one of those stories that practically everybody knows so few people bother to read the original text The originalFrankenstein andDracula are also o [...]

    18. I had hoped that a re read would have increased my appreciation of this old, albeit classic, tale, but alas, I still just find it okay I can t complain about the style because I ve read a lot of Stevenson s contemporaries I can t complain that it s not fantastic or gruesome enough, because it does have a certain low level miasma of hysteria that works fine as a thriller.What I can and want to complain about is something that has annoyed me about these people from day one The insistence that Evil [...]

    19. My impetus for reading this classic 1886 novella was seeing an interview with Donna Tartt in which she discusses writing The Goldfinch She says that she read Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde during her formative years and that there s something of it in every book I ve ever written Well, since I adore every book Ms Tartt has ever written, it was high time I read this.I love the creeptastic gothic stories from this time period Frankenstein, Dracula, anything by Poe There s something dank and dingy in those [...]

    20. Hace rato que ten a pendiente este cl sico del terror Me gust En algunos momentos se me hizo bastante pesado, pero las ltimas p ginas valieron todo el esfuerzo Quiz s si no hubiese sabido el final, lo hubiera disfrutado mucho m s Es una historia que nos muestra la sombra detr s de la sonrisa la lucha interna entre el rescoldo y la llama.

    21. By day, the mild mannered Dr Jekyll mouths platitudes about trickledown economics in front of a teleprompter while vaguely apologizing By night, the demoniacal Mr Hyde stands in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoots people Will the US electorate realize what s happening before it s too late

    23. This 70 page novelette is a load of old cobblers but very elegantly expressed cobblers The main idea is that everyone has a bad side and a good side Man is not truly one, but truly twoAnd hey, maybe for all I know, says Dr J I hazard the guess that man will be ultimately known for a mere polity of multifarious, incongruous and independent denizens Got that, a mere polity So I think he s thinking of something like multiple personalities or sumpin Now Dr J, being an upstanding wealthy individual, [...]

    24. This book was the start of my on going love story with gothic fiction Definitely one of my favorite classics in one of my favorite genres I highly recommend this

    25. If each, I told myself, could but be housed in separate identities, life would be relieved of all that was unbearable the unjust might go his way, delivered from the aspirations and remorse of his upright twin and the just could walk steadfastly and securely on his upward path, doing the good things in which he found his pleasure, and no longer exposed to disgrace and penitence by the hands of this extraneous evil It was the curse of mankind that these incongruous faggots were thus bound togeth [...]
