The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Narrated by Gene Lockhart
This is Robert Louis Stevenson at his best. Few writers have such command of the English language in telling tales of mystery and suspense. Gene Lockhart's narration adds a marvelous dimension of reality to an already chilling story.
Robert Louis Stevenson originally wrote Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde as a "chilling shocker." He then burned the draft and, upon his wife's advice, rewrote it as the darkly complex tale it is today. First published in 1866, it broke entirely new ground in subject matter and psychological approach, yet the struggle between Jekyll and Hyde is the eternal struggle between good and evil in man.

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850, the only son of a wealthy engineer. His childhood was plagued by illness, making regular schooling impossible. Stevenson was a lively man of strong words and feelings, who decided to become a writer in his teens. His career took off when he published accounts of his travels. In 1881 he began Treasure Island, which was to make him famous when it was published in 1883. He started A Child's Garden of Verses while working on Treasure Island and revised it during a stay in England after 1884, when he also wrote Kidnaped and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He died suddenly in the South Seas in 1894.
