The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

by Robert Louis Stevenson
Illustrated by Pete Williamson

The book

“I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two.”

 

In a quest to discover his inner self, celebrated physician Dr Henry Jekyll, uncovers a monster. At first he attempts to conceal this but gradually Hyde becomes stronger and stronger, dominating Jekyll and ultimately destroying them both.

 

First published to immediate acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the lightness and darkness living inside every human soul.
