This quote shows how strongly Hyde’s evil nature had progressed after being repressed for so long, and murdering Sir Danvers Carew. Although Hyde is described as dwarfish and deformed, Jekyll accepts him as a true part of himself. For example, Jekyll states “both sides of me were in dead earnest; I was no more myself when I laid aside restraint and plunged in shame, than when I labored, in the eye of the day, at the furtherance of knowledge or the relief of sorrow or suffering” (Stephenson 105). After Jekyll’s first transformation into Hyde, he stood in front of the mirror.
However, Jekyll’s good psyche was quick to act and regain control of their mind. Months later, when Utterson is reading the full statement of the case, he discovered that “[t]he power of Hyde seemed to have grown with the sickliness of Jekyll” (Stevenson 62). Jekyll has become sick literally and metaphorically from Hyde. The actions of Hyde in the murder caused Jekyll to become mentally ill from the constant fear of Hyde’s power. Jekyll is also “sick” with himself for creating the monster Hyde has become.
Although both Victor’s and the creation’s actions ultimately bring destruction, it is under society’s injustice that causes these violent and evil intentions, not the individual. Previous to his work, Frankenstein’s studies revolve around “attention was fixed upon every object the most insupportable to the delicacy of the human feelings. I saw how the fine form of man was degraded and wasted” (51). First in obsession with creating life, Frankenstein expresses love towards the supernatural in his passion for natural sciences. Working strenuous hours and putting himself in a weakening state of health, his dedication shows appreciation for his creation, showcasing the capability of love and good in mankind.
This phrase is seemingly prophetic to not only the story of “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” but to human morality as well. The first example of duality in the novella can be seen in the physical descriptions of Dr.Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Mr. Hyde is so disgustingly ugly that his very face alone caused Mr. Utterson to feel a “nausea and [a] distaste of life” (Stevenson 12). Hyde is even described as bearing “Satan’s signature” upon his face(Stevenson 12).Mr. Hyde is a young, small, and stumping man that embodies all of the wickedness of Dr. Jekyll (Buzzwell par 2).
Jekyll and Hyde TCEA In the novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, the predominant archetypal theme is “good and evil exist in all humans, and we live our lives struggling with these two forces.” This theme describes the duality of good and evil in Dr. Jekyll—the good being Jekyll and bad being Hyde— and the struggle he has with both sides fighting for dominance within himself. The emotional mindset and the physical attributes of Jekyll and Hyde show the good and evil within themselves.
In those who are themselves human, compassionate and thoughtful, Hyde raises some red flags. Even Jekyll fairly quickly recognizes the nature of Hyde: “Instantly the spirit of hell awoke in me [Jekyll] and raged… My devil [Hyde]… came out roaring” (Stevenson 84). However unlike Utterson and Enfield, Jekyll is taken by the “lust for evil.” Even a man as good as Jekyll can be swayed by the dark side.
In the story “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by R.L.S three characters represent Freud’s psychoanalysis of the id, ego, and superego. Freud describes id as the devil sitting on your shoulder or the evil side. In addition, the superego is a human moral conscience. Finally, the ego is a good balance between good and evil. The characters in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde represent Freud’s psychoanalysis by each other's character have a different personality as Utterson happens to be good is he is the superego, Jekyll is the ego because he is most like a human and is both good and bad, and Hyde is like a devil and bad so he represents the Id.
Now I'm not saying that that he was crazy when he morphed into Mr. Hyde but he was a very evil side of the doctor. Mr.Hyde was a shorter angrier version of Dr. Jekyll, while the doctor himself was a peaceful man who would never hurt a fly, and he was a doctor, so obviously he would save lives. In the begginig the doctor was able to control his angry side,
Mr. Hyde is portrayed as being deformed in his physical features. Dr. Jekyll mentions that Hyde's deformities may be a result of being buried underneath Jekyll's respectable side. Barbara Gates depicts Hyde as a sort of shadow saying, "He is both monster and shadow par excellence-- another self not only for Jekyll but for all the presumably upright Victorian bachelors of the story who perceive his deformities and for whom he becomes both devil and death knell. " Hyde is a shadow and the lesser half of the two personalities because of his despicable personality.
is a comparison of Ralph in this novel, one of Martin’s quotes was “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Ralph believed in order, civilization and peace, while the others wanted survival the savage way with power. Jack's passion for power is known when he says; 'I ought to be chief because I'm chapter chorister and head boy'. In the Lord of the Flies, Golding takes literary method of reviewing human rights through psychological insights.

It was written during the Victorian era when there were huge emphasis placed on social morality. He sets out to understand the differences between dual personalities, good and evil (evil definitely not being within the social norm).

Symbolism in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde(Draft) Published on January 5, 1886 and written by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a bold novel that called into question the most basic of Evangelical principles and assisted in launching Stevenson into his prominent position as one of the most accomplished writers of the Victorian era. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde portrays the story of Mr. Gabriel John Utterson, a lawyer, who is fixated on unraveling the dark mysteries of the wretched Mr. Hyde and his appearances in the will of Utterson’s good friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll. When the novel concludes, Utterson is stunned to discover that Mr. Hyde is none other than the physical manifestation of Dr. Jekyll’s evil alter ego, bringing about the distinct theme in the novel. Through the use of symbolism, Stevenson displays the scrutiny
For as long as man has known fear, lusus naturae have terrorized our imaginations: some entirely legendary; others based on bigoted knowledge. Folklore of many ancient beasts, for instance dragons, have lasted generations. Indeed we know devils do not exist, but they serve purposes other than scaring; they educate. From monumental leviathans, such as Ishirō Honda’s Godzilla, who informs of fissionable threats, or Ray Bradbury’s plesiosaurus, who gives a window en route lonely minds, to insentient revulsions, exemplified via Robert Louis Stevenson’s Mr. Hyde, monsters give mosaic slants that allegorically educate.
“The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” is a Victorian Gothic novel that was written by Robert Louis Stevenson in the late 19th century. The contrast between the mild-mannered Jekyll and the barbaric Hyde allows Stevenson to portray Hyde as a frightening outsider whilst establishing the recurring themes of corruption and horror which are explored through the ideas of vulnerability and blackmail. Throughout the novel Hyde is predominantly presented as animalistic. Highly descriptive vocabulary such as ‘snarled’, ‘hissing’ and ‘troglodytic’ establishes a predatorial tone due to its connotations of danger and fright, suggesting serpent like behaviour.
When stress becomes so prevalent in the body, it exposes the body to dangers that could ultimately lead to serious health issues or even death.
