Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
“…Stevenson’s short novel, written in 1885, is one of the ancestors of the modern mystery story…not only a good ‘bogey story,’ as Stevenson exclaimed when awakening from a dream in which he had visualized it…It is also, and more importantly, a fable that lies nearer to poetry than to ordinary prose fiction, and therefore belongs to the same order of art as, for instance, Madame Bovary or Dead Souls.
“Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a double triumph. It has the outside excitement that belongs to Conan Doyle with the inside excitement that belongs to Henry James.”
“Jekyll & Hyde I have read [and found] admirable…worthy of Shakespeare.”
