Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 “shilling shocker”, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, has been subjected to various interpretations over the years. While some have assessed the trope of duality in the light of racism, colonization and cultural ‘other’, others have drawn on psychological references of split personality or ‘dissociative identity disorder’(i.e. existence of more than one personality in one body). The popularity of the novella and the idea of binaries existing in one being, has given birth to the phrase ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ which associates itself to a person whose attitude is vastly different from situation to situation. The respectable Dr. Jekyll, in his attempt to prove the worth of his scientific ambitions and studies, creates a monster much like Frankenstein’s monster but at the same time completely different from it.
Tolkien himself has not helped the readers by refusing to elaborate on the role he is playing in the novel. Whatever he slips out, adds more to the element of confusion. In a letter to Naomi Mitchison, Tolkien states that “Tom Bombadil is not an important person — to the narrative. I suppose he has some importance as a ‘comment’. .

Instead, it only obviated the flaws of the monarchy to people once again leading to more opposition especially because the torture methods were incredibly cruel. Everyone was subjected to torture including women and children showing the brutality and extent to which authority would go to control people. Although spilling blood was prohibited according to Catholic law, other methods were used with water, rope, and fire that were even more painful. Catholics knew they should not have been inflicting pain upon people, but they found a loophole so they could maintain power. Many people were tortured under false pretenses and were usually innocent causing conflict to arise.
He believes that he is above the moral standards that govern the rest of humanity. Sentences about superman logic or whatever. This is perfectly exemplified as Raskolnikov considers the murder. He struggles internally between his desire to kill and his disgust of the act itself; he does not show any concern about the morality behind killing someone. He becomes overwhelmingly engrossed in his personal philosophy of the extraordinary man.
Iago’s behaviour and how that makes him a psychopath. Hans Jürgen Eysenck mentioned in his book Crime and Personality the following definition of a psychopath: Individuals who have considerable difficulty in social adjustment, without the traditional lack of intelligence or structural brain disease. Among the symptoms are lack of emotional control, unsatisfactory adjustment to social standards, irresponsibility of characters and impulsiveness. “The psychopath can usually verbalize all the social and moral rules but he does not seem to be able to understand them and to obey them in the way others do.” (Eysenck 54) Fred West characterizes Iago in Shakespeares’ Othello as a psychopath in his article “Iago the Psychopath” because of his manipulations and false honesty, yet his definition overlooks important characteristics such as his failures in relationships, parasitic lifestyle. unreliability and irresponsibility.

Freud developed his Psychoanalysis as a means to understand the relation between the somatic reality of the senses and language. He again postulated that the basic reason for hysteria n individuals is the result of Oedipus complex, an absence of the resolution of childhood sexuality. Freud thus makes his clinical theory a critique of society and culture. Freud’s theory of society and culture are diametrically opposed to Kant’s theory of the progressive rationalization and consequent freedom and maturity of the individual.

What is the point of looking at a
