Product Description

L'Étrange cas du Dr Jekyll et M. Hyde/The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Parallel Text/Dual Language Paperback, 256 pages

This novella's impact has been such that it has become a part of the English language, with the phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" being used to describe someone with vastly different morals from one situation to the next. Often associated with the rare mental condition called 'split personality' this story is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates the strange occurrences between the unsociable Edward Hyde his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll whose two personalities are one good and the other evil, with completely opposite levels of morality.

----

Grâce à l'absorption d'une substance chimique de son invention, le Dr Jekyll parvient à se dédoubler et peut être à son gré tantôt l'un, tantôt l'autre, de ses deux «moi». Mais il lui faut prendre d'extrêmes précautions pour que personne dans son entourage ne se doute que le célèbre Dr Jekyll, excellent homme, au physique agréable, se transforme à certaines heures en un monstre hideux, Edward Hyde, qui, la nuit, dans les quartiers sordides de Londres, attaquent les enfants et les vieillards et se livre à toutes les turpitudes...
