Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde with The Merry Men & Other Tales and Fables
1993, Robert Louis Stevenson, David Dobson
This book comes with an introduction and notes by Dr Tim Middleton, Head of English Studies, University of Ripon and York. In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Jekyll discovers a monster. First published to critical acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man's nature. This volume also includes Stevenson's 1887 collection of short stories, "The Merry Men" and Other Tales and Fables. "The Merry Men" is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; "Markheim", the sinister study of the mind of a murderer; "Thrawn Janet", a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; "Olalla", a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; "Will O'the Mill", a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and "The Treasure of Franchard", a study of French bourgeois life.
