The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a short novel written by Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886.

Set in Victorian-era London, the story stars lawyer Utterson. He is conversing with a friend about an encounter with a strangely unnerving and repulsive being.

At that point Utterson begins an investigation and tries to piece together the identity of the strange being known as Mr. Hyde and an old friend of his, Dr. Jekyll.

In barely a hundred pages, Stevenson makes an analysis of human nature and the dualism present in every human being between good and evil. He also addresses issues such as morality and scientific ethics.

"Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable."
