Description


No writer in the English language has so perfectly wedded the horrific with the literary, the thrilling with the provoking, or the profane with the spiritual as Robert Louis Stevenson. His Gothic masterpiece Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has left unfathomable impressions on the fabric of our cultural self-understanding, stamping its heavy foot tread in drama, film, and our language, and leaving a twisted labyrinth of psychological, ethical, and social alleyways for readers to ponder decades after it first effected the way we understand ourselves and the balance between public acceptance and private desires. In an age when social media has left the gap between a manicured image and internal reality wider than ever before, Jekyll and Hyde speaks to our desperation to be validated and our conflicting hunger to live freely without consequence. In this illustrated and annotated volume of Stevenson's best horror stories -- including the only available English translation of "Thrawn Janet," Stevenson's terrifying story of possession and witchcraft -- you will find corpses that violate space and time, Satanic doppelgangers, homicidal treasure hunters, jealous ghosts, erotic vampires, unspeakable family curses, and much more. TALES INCLUDED in this ANNOTATED EDITION: The Merry Men - Thrawn Janet - The Body Snatcher - Markheim - Olalla - The Bottle Imp - The Waif Woman - Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
