Contains: 'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde', The 'The Body Snatcher', and 'Olalla' Stevenson's story is one of the most famous works of horror fiction of all time and the names of Jekyll and Hyde have become synonymous with the idea of the split personality. As an exploration of the human potential for evil and bestiality, the story is very much a product of its time and this new edition reveals the scientific and literary context of Stevenson's work. 'The Body Snatcher' is charts the murky underside of Victorian medical practice and 'Olalla' is a tale of vampirism and 'the beast within' with a beautiful woman at its centre.
