Il singolare «caso» del dottor Jekyll e del suo doppio, il signor Hyde, diventa teatro di uno spietato confronto tra istinto e ragione, tra le esigenze della virtù e le pulsioni più oscure e ribelli che albergano nel cuore dell’uomo. Scritto in maniera lucida ed essenziale, divenuto ormai un classico dell’horror per il clima di mistero e di terrore in cui si svolge la vicenda, questo racconto ha pagine di alta potenza suggestiva, che uniscono al brivido e alla suspense lo spirito austero e ferrigno dei sermoni.

55 pages later and I’m still convinced that Robert Louis Stevenson named his characters this way exclusively so he could fit in the line “if he shall be Mr. Hyde, I shall be Mr. Seek!” and honestly? that’s iconic. Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortun Leggi tutto
