Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde

  • Dans le quartier lugubre de Soho, le docteur Jekyll est un médecin corpulent, bienveillant, très humain de caractère. De temps à autre, dans son poussiéreux laboratoire, il se livre à des expériences chimiques et concocte un certain breuvage qui le transforme à volonté en personnage malfaisant, difforme, de tempérament violent et bestial : sous le nom de Hyde, il mène sporadiquement une vie criminelle. Mais peu à peu, la meilleure part de lui-même faiblit, et Jekyll résiste de moins en moins au monstre qui s'est emparé de lui.
    Stevenson n'avait d'autre intention que de raconter une histoire fantastique au milieu de gens ordinaires et de bon sens, mais, dans les brumes de Londres, l'intuition géniale du conteur fixe à jamais l'effrayante dualité de l'animal humain.
    Texte intégral

  • Stevenson Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde Petit, difforme, velu, un monstre erre dans l'atmo-sphère trouble des rues de Londres. Le vent souffle, l'éclat rouge des réverbères perce à peine le brouillard...
    Paisiblement installé dans son bureau, devant le feu qui crépite, un respectable savant voit avec épouvante sa belle main se dessécher, se couvrir de poils...
    Une histoire à faire dresser les cheveux sur la tête du lecteur, même le plus enclin à se dédoubler.

    Edition de Patrick Wald Lasowski.

  • One of the most well-known gothic stories of all time, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a harrowing tale of good and evil and the duality of man set against dark, Victorian London. A new edition of one of the most famous stories of English literature: inspired by a feverish dream, Stevenson's renowned horror fantasy is a glimpse into the darker side of all human beings. Dr Henry Jekyll has been obsessed since early manhood by the uneasy duality of good and evil he senses in himself and others, and is driven - to his peers' dismay - to tamper with the mysterious and transcendental side of science. The respected doctor becomes inexplicably silent and reclusive, while at the same time the terrifying Mr Edward Hyde begins to stalk the streets of London. At heart a chilling tale of the perils of ambition and hubris, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde reflects many of the preoccupations of Stevenson's own Victorian milieu - the dangers of a morbidly repressive society, and the post-Darwinian fear of man's beast nature.
