Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
- Robert Louis Stevenson

- Sayfa s.
In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Henry Jekyll discovers a monster. First published to immediate acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man's nature, and its is the book which established Stevenson's reputation as a writer.
Also included in this volume is Stevenson's 1887 collection of short stories, The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables.
'The Merry Men' is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; 'Markheim', a sinister study of the mind of a murderer; 'Tharwn Janet', a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; 'Olalla', a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; 'Will O' the Mill', a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and 'The Treasure of Franschard', a study of French bourgeois life.
