Scientist Dr Jekyll discovers a way of changing his personality and becoming the violent and aggressive Mr Hyde. At the start, moving from one to the other is easy. But not for long.....
Both a psychological investigation and a thrilling story, the double nature of the hero has made him an iconic figure in literature. The tempestuous nature of the tale makes it an ideal title for Young Adult Classics, the introductory series for the 13-17 age range.
Jekyll falling from pre lapsarian innocence to scientific curiosity and arrogance. Pride before fall. Adam and Eve. Pandora’s box. Intemperate action “Journey of the ancient mariner” “I can resist everything but temptation” Oscar Wilde.
John Sessions a joy.
