Pressestimmen

The best edition of Stevenson's supernatural fiction so far. The texts are very well edited, the notes are significant and unobtrusive for the average reader, and the appendices provide the perfect complementation for Stevenson's narratives of the uncanny. Roger Luckhurst's introduction is fascinating. A must. Dr. Antonio Ballesteros-Gonzalez, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha

Synopsis

'Instantly the spirit of hell awoke in me and raged...I was suddenly struck through the heart by a cold thrill of terror.' Stevenson's short novel, published in 1886, became an instant classic. It was a Gothic horror that originated in a feverish nightmare, whose hallucinatory setting in the murky back streets of London gripped a nation mesmerized by crime and violence. The respectable doctor's mysterious relationship with his disreputable associate is finally revealed in one of the most original and thrilling endings in English literature. In addition to Jekyll and Hyde, this edition also includes a number of short stories and essays written by Stevenson in the 1880s, minor masterpieces of fiction and comment: 'The Body Snatcher', 'Markheim', and 'Olalla' feature grave-robbing, a sinister double, and degeneracy, while 'A Chapter on Dreams' and 'A Gossip on Romance' discuss artistic creation and the 'romance' form. Appendixes provide extracts from contemporary writings on personality disorder, which set Stevenson's tale in its full historical context.

Einleitungssatz
MR UTTERSON the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen Viktorianische Doppelmoral als urban gothic 3. Februar 2007
Von A. Wolf
Format:Taschenbuch
Robert Louis Stevensons Erzählung "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll" (1886) beginnt mit einem äußerst merkwürdigen Vorfall. Es wird berichtet, dass ein offenbar reichlich gewalttätiger Herr eine junge Dame im Vorübergehen beinahe zu Tode getrampelt hat. Es stellt sich heraus, dass der Fremde eine gewisser Mr. Hyde ist, was dem Anwalt Gabriel Utterson größte Sorgen bereitet, hat doch sein Freund, der angesehene Dr. Jekyll, verfügt, dass im Falle seines Todes oder seines Verschwindens all sein Besitz Mr. Hyde zufallen soll. Utterson stellt Untersuchungen an, wer nur dieser seltsame Mr. Hyde ist.
Allein schon sein Äußeres wirkt abschreckend und animalisch: "Mr. Hyde was pale and dwarfish, he gave an impression of deformity without any nameable malformation, he had a displeasing smile, he had borne himself to the lawyer with a sort of murderous mixture of timidity and boldness, and he spoke with a husky, whispering and somewhat broken voice; all these were points against him, but not all of these together could explain the hitherto unknown disgust, loathing, and fear with which Mr. Utterson regarded him. [...] God bless me, the man seems hardly human! Something troglodytic, shall we say?"

Mit solchen Charakterisierungen bezieht sich die Erzählung eindeutig auf Degenerationsdiskurse, welche im sich neigenden 19. Jahrhundert verstärkt betrieben wurden. Immerhin hatte Darwin die Evolution als ein nach beiden Seiten offenes Kontinuum beschrieben, das neben einer Fortschritt bedeutenden Evolution auch ihr Gegenteil, die Degeneration, als Möglichkeit vorsah. Im viktorianischen England glaubte man überdies, die menschlichen Züge seien anhand äußerer Anzeichen lesbar.

5.0 von 5 Sternen „Let Me But Escape into My Laboratory Door, 13. November 2012
Von Tristram Shandy TOP 500 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
give me but a second or two to mix and swallow the draught that I had always standing ready; and whatever he had done, Edward Hyde would pass away like the stain of breath upon a mirror; and there in his stead, quietly at home, trimming the midnight lamp in his study, a man who could afford to laugh at suspicion, would be Henry Jekyll.”

Robert Louis Stevenson probably knew too well about the temptation that could lure a man into wishing to shuffle off the respectable coil and to enjoy himself a bit, even in ways that were not tolerated by Victorian mores, because as a student he and a friend of his would from time to time take on false names and indulge in pleasures their families and elders would surely have frowned upon. As boys will be boys, so will men, more often than not – and it might not be too unlikely to assume that when writing his famous novella on split personality, Stevenson had in mind his somewhat rakish liberty as a young man and, maybe, his regrets at having lost it. If you have a closer look at the dramatis personae, you will find primness and propriety to rather stifling a degree. Mr. Utterson, for instance, Jekyll’s lawyer, who is our stepping stone into the story, is a paragon of correctness and decency, “austere with himself”, and “though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years.” He has even made a habit of going for a walk with a Mr. Enfield, a distant relative of his – probably out of some inexplicable sense of family duty – although on these dismal occasions “they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend.” Another of Jekyll’s friends, Dr.

Atty. Mr. Utterson is worried, as the keeper of Dr Henry Jekyll's will. The will gives everything to Edward Hyde incase of Henry's death or disappearance. Mr. Utterson met the hideous Hyde once and does not trust him. Well it looks like Henry's will will have to be executed as the housekeeper; Mr. Pool thinks Hyde hid Henry's body.

Once again, I saw Spencer Tracy before I read the book, so I was anticipating a different type of story. I read "Treasure Island" so I am familiar with Stevenson's writing style but I did not realize that this story was more of a mystery that draws the conclusion and revelation in the end. The explanation of man and his duel personality is excellent and I suspect he draws on personal experience.

I also read the kindle version. It was sparse and strait forward; there was not a lot of fluff and speculation from other personalities. I made sure that the text-to speech was activated before purchasing. This helped but I had to keep reminding myself that the names were mispronounced.

4.0 von 5 Sternen When Harry met Edward 27. Dezember 2012
Von Jennifer Grey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Everyone knows the story, or at least they think they do. But as is the case with much classic literature that enters into popular consciousness, much gets lost or forgotten or shockingly misremembered (I'm looking at you, Wuthering Heights, and your freakish misinterpretation as a love story!) Stevenson's tale is both more and less than you probably recall it being, far more reliant on frames within frames in a way that makes you wonder if he wasn't a long-lost Bronte sister and with much less overt in its depictions of evil.

There are many theories regarding the latter and the possible implications Stevenson's apparent timidity: that he was eliding obvious references to homosexuality, or possibly child prostitution, a major scandal over which happened during the time he was writing. I personally think Stevenson left Hyde's perversions deliberately opaque as a way of demonstrating the duality of nature even in his reader, for each of us supplies from some dark corner of our being suggestions as to what the infamous Hyde could have been up to, suggestions all the more disturbing for coming solely within ourselves.

This particular edition includes several other tales that further illustrate Stevenson's fascination with duality and evil, as well as an essay, "A Gossip on Romance" that should be required reading for anyone enrolled in a creative writing MFA program. Rather than seeming extraneous, the extras add to the enjoyment of Stevenson's classic, as does the excellent introduction by Luckhurst, which makes getting to know this particular tale all over again an utter delight.

3.0 von 5 Sternen More than I thought 19. August 2013
Von NHshopper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was was familiar with Kidnapped, Treasure Island and of course The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde however I was not aware the latter was only a short novella. By reading this book I was introduced to a RLS I did not know existed. He was a writer of many short stories included herein, all of a romantic nature, very similar in style to Edgar Alan Poe though not as macabre was Poe, who interestingly enough was born after RLS. Reading this book gave me the idea that perhaps Poe was influenced to some degree be the writings of RLS. I enjoyed this book of short stories and was left wanting more.
