The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde


The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde originated in a dream Stevenson once had. Upon waking he recalled ‘a fine bogy tale’ and immediately set about writing it down. The focus on the split personality and underlying suggestion that evil is potentially more powerful than good ensure its continued popularity over a hundred years on.

Robert Louis Stevenson said that the plot of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (first published without “The” as the first word in the title) first came to him in a nightmare and that, after waking up, he wrote the first draft in three days. Stevenson introduces the mystery of the evil Mr. Edward Hyde early in the novel, but he does not provide a solution to the mystery until the very end.
