Haracterized by settings in or around ancient castles or monasteries eep in the gloomy forests and involving proud Italian or Spanish nobles and the machinations of corrupt ecclesiastics This was a uickly growing literary trend Some willing participants include Anne Radcliffe s The Mysteries of Udolpho Matthew Lewis Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Maturin and much later Bram Stoker s Dracula All of these works and many others featured Walpole s signature setting and era which almost always took place in Catholic countries Robert Lewis Stevenson however changed the face of the horror genre He accomplished this feat by incorporating many uniue traits but two things that proved most effective were 1 modernizing his horrific tale set in what was then present Narcissistic Abuse day London and 2 he veered away from the countryside and allowed the action to unravel in the city With its urban surroundings all the action intrigue and mystery had a chance to earnestly breathe perhaps for the first time and took on a menacing shape all its own In this way it feels all too real Stevenson supplanted the reader in his world his locale You re right there alongside Utterson Jekyll and Hyde Also prevalent and valid here are adeuateoses of psychology thus amplifying the suspense and fodder for many stimulating conversations a sprinkling of philosophy science religion two subjects that

Body Snatcher and Olalla Like the latter a largely metaphorical tale of vampirism that emphasizes forms of atavistic forms Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde marked a return to similar themes The masks we wear to conceal our insecurities and sin are very clear here as is Stevenson s passion for his art It went The Violent Stepfather 2 deeper than that we were all startled by this transformation as if a man had

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Other Tales of TerrorThe strange thing about the Jekyll and Hyde story for me is how familiar it all feels Even before one first takes up a copy of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde 1886 and begins reading it is as if one is reading one s own story There is after all good and bad within all of us a fact of which this great novella provides a powerful and isturbing reminder The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde the full name of the story is not the only thing that the Scottish born Robert Louis Stevenson ever wrote though it is certainly the most famous Notwithstanding the lung trouble that plagued him for much of his life forced him to rel I wonder if this story had any influence on Carl Jung s shadow theory that we each have a shadow self to embody our negative traits as Henry Jekyll uite literally oes with his alter ego Edward Hyde Stevenson had surely studied Descartes philosophy Ren Descartes and his theory of mindbody uality has an awful lot to answer for Our whole Western world view tends towards The Gnostic Religion dividing the world into two camps us them man nature church state those for us those against us And life is so much complex than that We know from studies ofementia Alzheimer s Computational Molecular Biology: An Algorithmic Approach (Computational Molecular Biology) disease that physical exercise is protective for the brain an organ which we tend to think of as somehow Nabokov onceescribed The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as having an almost winey uality to it and I think that sums up the uniue atmosphere Stevenson is able to conjure up really well the book transcends the conventionialties of the Gothic genre which inspired it to become something far grater and grander as it becomes a kind of treatise on the Mocktails duality of good and evil in people Dr Jekyll s experiments lead to him concocting arug which creates an inverse of his supposedly benign essence whereas Hyde is outwardly kind and gregarious the Clojure In Action dwarfish Hyde causes an instant sense of revulsion in those who meets and is cruel and capricious Yet as Nabokov states the characters aren t as binary as you would think neither character is wholly good or evil instead the are entwined with one another Jekyll being able to let go of the sense of unfettered freedom which Hyde is able to realise and Hyde is unable to let of the sense of responsibility and respectability which keep his vices in check The London in which the book is set comes aliveuring the night macabre and ghost like its empty streets shimmering under the pale glow of a Southern African Literature: An Introduction diaphanous moonlight act as the centre stage for Hyde s monstrosities That the novel is told mainly from the perspective of the conventional Utterson only adds to the strange beauty which Stevenson is able to interweave in the novel it is as if the creation of Hyde creates a sense of poetry in Utterson s prosaic life the ripples of Dr Jekyll s experiments impacting on the wider world around him The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is one of the greatest Victorian novels a novel which transcends the conventions of the area and creates something ineffably majestic This contains three separate reviews 1 The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde 2 The Body Snatcher and 3 Olalla 1 The

this for my GCSE and I absolutely loved it and every time I re read it I love it even What really puts me in awe of this novel is how original it is The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was a really pivotal point in literature it literally changed the whole of the Gothic genre and in my opinion for the better Prior to its publication all Gothic horror was set in far way places such asilapidated castles in Italy or Spain because such nasty occurrences could only occur in uncivilised countries obviously But Robert Louis Stevenson chose to break that trend and set his story in the prestigious city of London and he it to break that trend and set his story in the prestigious city of London and he it well My favourite element of this novel is the glorious setting The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde BWWM (An African American Romance) (BWWM Paranormal Scifi Romance) defined the new era of Gothic literature with its now stereotypical foggy labyrinthine backdrop Stevenson s power ofescriptive writing is incredible If anyone can African Literature: Overview and Bibliography define uncanny it s this guy Isolation is such a key theme to any Gothic tale if something goes wrong no one can hear you scream Or see you in this case because the inexplicablyense fog generates such obscurity which conveniently reflects the nature of Stevenson s plot In any really good Gothic

Her hand oes and it oesn t turn out too well for him in the endA fabulous and thought provoking mystery that I wish had been longer The ending is a little bit unsatisfying because a lot of uestions are left unanswered but then a truly great mystery story provokes uestions than it answers2 The Body Snatcher This is essentially a tale based loosely on the escapades of Burke and Hare who worked for the infamous anatomist Robert Knox supplying his private medical school in Edinburgh with ead bodies for African American Literature in Transition, 1830-1850 dissection It was common that bodies for medical research wereug up from recent burials but Burke and Hare s corpses were uncannily fresh and that s because they weren t grave robbers in fact they created their own corpses by murdering people It was too much of a temptation for Edinburgh born novelist Stevenson not to write about this homegrown horror when he was asked to create a shilling shocker for Christmas As always his writing was fabulous and the Gothic elements even better but for me this short story was just a bit toowell short If it had been a À quoi rêvent les algorithmes developed piece like the glorious The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde then I am positive it would have received a higher rating from me It felt uite rushed and the ending was anticlimactic Back in theay this was written I m sure it would have played on the superstitions of the contemporary reader and even today the foul exploitative business of grave robbing is uite nasty but this was just not nearly as good as what I m used to with Stevenson although an interesting historical ocument nonethelessAfter Burke and Hare had murdered up to 15 unfortunates from the Edinburgh slums they were finally convicted And although both were eually guilty Hare was set free whilst Burke was hanged and then very fittingly issected You can pop in and visit Burke or what s left of him at the Edinburgh Medical School NiceIf you want a fun and concise summary of the escapades of Burke and Hare watch the Horrible Histories song it s great3 Olalla I see that this seems to be getting uite a bit of hate so I m going to Spare the Child: The Religious Roots of Punishment and the Psychological Impact of Physical Abuse do my bit and try and explain why I actually thoroughly enjoyed OlallaThis piece is said to have greatly influenced Bram Stoker s Dracula which was written over aecade later so automatically I found it a very interesting read It s the epitome of Gothic fiction at its conception set in Managing Activism A Guide to Dealing with Activists and Pressure Groups distant times and Catholic countries before its transition to the city and even the human psyche itself because such horrors were supposedly removed from their audience Protestants mainly and things like this could obviously only happen in less civilised ages and places It s a story ofiabolical revenges and family curses set in an ancient aristocratic mansion full of proud and corrupt Spanish nobles Although the family whom the story concerns are never explicitly exposed as vampires there s a pretty obvious theme of blood both in the literal gushing sense but also with a biological emphasis hereditary taints like vampirism mwah ha haAs always Stevenson s writing was glorious and incredibly powerful The lush Spanish setting and the imagery was absolutely stunning I would have loved it even had it been written as a full length novel Okay maybe not full length that s not really Stevenson s thing but just a tad chunkierI can see why this isn t as well known as The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde but I think it Faith Into Action: Thoughts on Selected Topics deserves a bit recognition and a higher average rating because it really is aecent enigmatic "little book and well worth the read I forgotten how high strung anxious and creepy Victorian horror writing "book and well worth the read I forgotten how high strung anxious and creepy Victorian horror writing be Perhaps it s creepy because it s so uptightThis is my third time through Jekyll and Hyde and first time through the other two stories one is about genetic vampirism and the other a pair of serial killers inspired by the Burke and Hare murders All three stories are uick reads perfect for those times when you re alone at night waiting for a bus or train that s running lateIt s always made me wonder why Robert Louis Stevenson never covered the Jack the Ripper murders The subject matter is right up his alley and Stevenson was one of the few Victorian writers who could have put an interesting spin on the pathos of the killer Seems like too much of a missed opportunity 4 5 I really liked this so much than expected Forget all the films you ve seen and open this book with an open mind It is a brilliant horror story and besides The story gradually gathers pace with the chapters increasing in length as the reader is Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family drawn evereeper into the horror of the hero s fate The story is told via the observations of the hero s friends until at the very end the hero s own words take up the narrative and
