Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

When the philanthropic, genial Dr. Jekyll becomes intensely in the problems of good and evil and their effects on the nature of man, his deliberations soon drive him into his laboratory. There, he pursues an answer to a question that has become his obsession: can the two opposing forces be separated? His experiments produce an astonishing drug that draws out the evil side of his own nature: the evil Mr. Hyde. At first, an antidote restores the physician to his better self. But once realized, Mr. Hyde grows more and more powerful and resistant to restraints. Ultimately he commits an atrocity which to the mild-mannered doctor would be unthinkable. Inspired by a bad dream, The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reflects the Victorian preoccupation with science and with questions raised by scientific discoveries.
