4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not at all like modern depiction, but well worth the read 20 octobre 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed this 'classic'. I had never read the original story before. My depiction of Jekyll/Hyde has been shaped over a lifetime of modern portrayal. Reading the original story brings it into a whole new light and gives the reader a better understanding of what Stevenson was aiming for. Also, reading these 'Victorian' age stories gives a different outlook on how we see today, be it religion, psychology, or morality. I highly recommend.

It's interesting to see how people have adapted this work to the stage or screen, but comparison means that you have to read the book! Having seen a few adaptations recently (a short series by BBC and on stage in Indianapolis) I can't help but wonder and how Hyde has changed. A character of unadulterated evil has been turned into (Spoilers!) a representation of blind, unhampered love at any cost. With that love, comes elements of loyalty. Slowly, the antagonist becomes a morally ambiguous, if not outright, protagonist of a character. We grow to 'understand' and sympathize with him.

But not so in this book. Here, we have a character not meant to be reasoned out or liked or glorified. A mindless beast personifying man's sin, epitomizing the grittiness of all the worst of our humanity, Hyde is fearful of death alone.

And the rest I leave to you, reader.

Well that was odd.
When you start reading a Classic, any Classic, you have to remember that it won't written like the books of today. I don't just mean that the wording will be more difficult, or even the sentence structure, I mean the viewpoint that the story is told from. I had expected this to be told from the point of view of the protagonist, Dr. Jekyll. Instead, it was told from the viewpoint of one of his friends, Mr. Utterson. I liked how it was told that way, you were able to see the other characters' reactions to Dr. Jekyll's strange behavior, and the curiosity to what may have caused it. You also are able to see their feelings toward Mr. Hyde, and how they completely disagree with Jekyll's decision to trust Hyde.
The majority of the story is told this way. Hyde is a hated man, one who people despise at first glance, thought they can never place just why that is. Jekyll is respected and loved, but has begun to act strangely, with a lot of fear and distress. Nobody can quite figure out why this is, or why he spend time with Mr.Hyde, especially after Hyde murders an important man. Gleefully, he murdered him gleefully.
The last two chapters change a bit. The second to last chapter is told as a letter from Lanyon, a friend of both Utterson and Jekyll. It tells of how he did Jekyll a favor, only to discover that Jekyll is Hyde, as Jekyll drank a cure before him. And the last chapter is told from the viewpoint of Dr. Jekyll himself.
Now is when it gets weird.
I had always thought that Jekyll had some mental issue, then read the book. I discovered that he believed that people were commingled of both good and bad, and this fascinated him. Long story short, he creates an elixir which he believes will separate the parts into two different entities. He succeeds, and for a while is able to switch freely between his different personalities. He enjoys evil-doing as Hyde and is guilt free when he returns to being Jekyll. But you can see him going crazy by his words. Though he enjoyed his ability at first, he never referred to either man, Jekyll or Hyde, as 'I'. It was always by their first name. But then he started having trouble controlling the side of him that was Hyde, and was for a little while, referring to him as Hyde (the hate he had for Hyde was very evident), and to Jekyll as 'I'. Jekyll and Hyde grew to hate each other with a passion, and the only reason that Hyde ever let Jekyll return was fear, fear of being caught and killed for the murder he committed., But he also feared Jekyll, since Jekyll had the power to kill him, thought this was only through suicide.
Jekyll and Hyde are not two different people, not really. Because it isn't like he couldn't remember what had happened as Hyde, he remembered it all. He kept him mind no matter what personality he was. The only difference was their morals. Their morals, their desires, their fear, all the things that make someone an individual were different. But it was the same mind.
Engaging? definitely. Strange and potentially disturbing? Wonderfully so! Recommended? Yes.

The last 50 pages are some of my favorite written words. This is a classic I haven't read in over 30 years. I've been re-reading a lot of books. This book is obviously one of those that should be in everybody's collection. We all have a Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde buried in our personalities and sometimes something causes them to collide.

I reread this classic while doing research on sex offenders, particularly those who abuse children. Indeed, Stevenson starts the story with Hyde mauling a young child. In that context, I was amazed at how closely Mr. Hyde fits the profile of a sex offender. The convoluted mental state of Hyde, his friends denial and shunning, and his own tragic testament to his desires and decline are remarkable. And what truly amazed me upon rereading it is that Stevenson captured the two-faced nature of a pedophile in the character of the seemingly normal and charming Dr. Jekyll and his hidden fiend Mr. Hyde. In light of today's headlines about pedophiles like Sandusky the book could almost be classified as literary non fiction.
