Welcome to my New post, I will talk about a very good story I read long ago, The Strenge Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the original title of a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. The work is commonly known today as The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde or Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Mr. Edward Hyde.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886) is one of the most famous world literary scene, it follows that even in some conversations we hear references to these two figures are the most bipolar opposing concepts of our language : good and evil on both sides of the same coin that make our human nature.
Its author, Robert Louis Stevenson, tells the story of Dr. Jekyll and his strange and cozy life. It all starts with the memory of a mysterious event between a man and a girl. Research soon begin at the hands of Utterson, who discovers the will of the doctor and after reading it discovers the name of a person unknown, a certain Mr. Hyde, who left his entire estate. Curiosity grows after another event, the death of an English parliament. Another death happens, that of a friend of Utterson, Lanyon after a shock. Everything points to Dr. Jekyll. Besides his butler, Poole, Utterson calls one day and asks for help that has come into the house and he thinks has killed Jekyll. Finally find that there has been a suicide, Hyde, a creature short and unsightly.
During the course of the story, Utterson find two letters left by Lanyon and Jekyll, the first reveals that Lanyon witnessed the transformation from Jekyll to Hyde, (hence the emotional shock), and the second is a confession of the doctor in the revealing that created a potion in order to separate good and evil in him. A bipolar personified in Edward Hyde (evil) and Jekyll (good). That concoction effective, however, lead to disaster because you turn evil treasure even more horsepower and Jekyll loses control. The changes occurred spontaneously and also ran one of the key ingredients in the preparation of the brew.
These are precisely the feelings you have when taking the potion Jekyll: I was prey to most terrible torments, a crunch of bones, a deadly nausea and horror of the spirit that could not be overcome or at the same time of birth or Death. This agony was soon passed, and, as if emerging from a serious illness, I was recovering. There was something new in my sensations, something indescribably new and, because of this very novelty, incredibly sweet. I felt younger, lighter, happier in the physical, inside, had a strong consciousness of recklessness, in my imagination, tumbled disordered sensual images, ties loosened duty and felt a stranger, but not innocent, feeling of freedom in the soul.
This work has been filmed countless times and also the theater and has been translated into numerous languages.
The very phrase Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is used to refer to the psychological concept known as bipolar disorder. Perhaps it is also a clear influence on later thought, especially focusing on the figure of the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, who would develop a theory based on the human personality and as opposite sides, one conscious and one subconscious where needs emerge evil of our nature.

The conclusion I draw from this book that the author has written the book for the reader to interpret its content as a moral fable about the rarity of man, setting for the perpetual struggle between good and evil.
The book reads very quickly and I liked a lot, because it is an excellent story of suspense and the plot is very good. The author knows how to transmit it to the reader the feeling of horror aroused by the discovery of what is abominable in everyday reality.
I hope you liked it, cost me a lot of work. Comments or points are a small reward for this collection of information and images. Bye Bye People, see you next time!
