„... nun aber war ich Freiwild für jeden, gejagt, obdachlos, ein weithin bekannter Mörder, dem Galgen geweiht.“ Die Schauernovelle des schottischen Schriftstellers Robert Louis Stevenson („Die Schatzinsel“) zählt zu den berühmtesten Adaptionen des Doppelgängermotivs in der Weltliteratur. In ihrer Vielschichtigkeit bis heute faszinierend, wurde sie prägend für das moderne Horrorgenre. Vollständig neu übersetzt von Susanne Mussehl.

Vollständig neu überarbeitete, korrigierte und illustrierte Fassung Stevensons wohl bedeutendste Geschichte, und eine der berühmtesten Horrornovellen überhaupt, wurde 1886 zum ersten großen Publikumserfolg des bis dahin nur wenig bekannten Robert Louis Stevenson. Dr. Jekyll ist es mit Hilfe von chemischen Experimenten gelungen, der bösen, triebhaften Seite seines Wesens eine eigene Gestalt zu geben. Als Mr. Hyde treibt er im nebelverhangenen London sein Unwesen. Doch die Rückverwandlung in einen Menschen wird immer schwieriger. Mit 19 Illustrationen Ich habe nie einen Kreis von so haßerfüllten Gesichtern gesehen, und in ihrer Mitte stand der Mann mit finsterer, ja spöttischer Kaltblütigkeit, obgleich er selbst erschrocken war — das konnte ich sehen —, doch wußte er das teuflisch gut zu verbergen. ›Wenn Sie Kapital aus dieser Begebenheit zu schlagen gedenken‹, sagte er, ›so bin ich natürlich machtlos. Jeder Ehrenmann wünscht einen Skandal zu vermeiden, nennen Sie Ihre Forderungen!‹ Null Papier Verlag www.null-papier.de

First published in 1886 as a “shilling shocker,” Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde takes the basic struggle between good and evil and adds to the mix bourgeois respectability, urban violence, and class conflict. The result is a tale that has taken on the force of myth in the popular imagination. This Broadview edition provides a fascinating selection of contextual material, including contemporary reviews of the novel, Stevenson’s essay “A Chapter on Dreams,” and excerpts from the 1887 stage version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Also included are historical documents on criminality and degeneracy, the “Jack the Ripper” murders, the “double brain,” and London in the 1880s. New to this third edition are an appendix on the figure of the Victorian gentleman and an expanded selection of letters related to the novel; the introduction and bibliography have also been updated to reflect recent criticism.

'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.

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the original title of a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson that was first published in 1886. The work is commonly known today as The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often spuriously called "split personality", referred to in psychiatry as dissociative identity disorder, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality. In this case, there are two personalities within Dr Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil; completely opposite levels of morality. The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

The mysterious association between respectable Dr Henry Jekyll and despicable lowlife Edward Hyde is a puzzle to Dr Jekyll's friends, including his lawyer Gabriel Utterson. Where Jekyll is sociable, hardworking and pious, Hyde is a violent criminal, a wild hedonist. When Hyde beats a member of Parliament to death, Utterson is determined to discover the ties that bind the two men together. . . Robert Louis Stevenson's account of man's capacity for evil is as powerful today as it was on first publication in 1886.
