'Der seltsame Fall von Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde' - dieser etwas behäbig klingende Titel läßt kaum vermuten, daß sich dahinter eine der aufregendesten Erzählungen der Weltliteratur verbirgt. Auch der Ruhm des Autors Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), dessen Schatzinsel zu den berühmtesten Abenteuerromanen der Weltliteratur gehört, steht dieser Erwartung eher im Wege. Aber wirklich - Der seltsame Fall gehört zu den Schlüsseltexten unseres Zeitalters. Die Erzählung ist spannend wie ein Kriminalroman - und sie ist in gewisser Weise einer! Darum darf hier über ihren Inhalt auch nichts mitgeteilt werden. Wesentlich zu erwähnen bleibt die Neuübersetzung, die sich ganz besonders dicht in Wortlaut und Atmosphäre am Original orientiert. Das Original ist im Paralleldruck ebenfalls parat!

This volume includes Stevenson's famous spine-chilling thriller Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as well as Weir of Hermiston, an unfinished novel, whom many consider to be Stevenson's masterpiece. It was cut short by his sudden death in 1894 from a cerebral hemorrhage. THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLLl AND MR HYDE: Dr. Jekyll invented a drug that would change him into the ominous Mr. Hyde. His evil nature, however, became the stronger part of him and to his horror, he no longer needed the formula to transform his appearance. -- WEIR OF HERIMSTON: Set in the time of the Napoleonic Wars, it tells the story of Archie Weir, a youth born into an upper-class Edinburgh family. Because of his Romantic sensibilities and sensitivity, Archie is estranged from his father, who is depicted as the coarse and cruel judge of a criminal court. By mutual consent, Archie is banished from his family of origin and sent to live as the local laird on a family property in the vicinity of the Borders hamlet Hermiston. While serving as the laird, Archie meets and falls in love with Kirstie (Christina). As the two are deepening their relationship, the book breaks off. Confusingly, there are two characters in the novel called Christina, the younger of whom is Archie's sweetheart.
