The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Shadow Trilogy)

By: Michael Clay Thompson, Robert Louis Stevenson

$17.50

Now your child can enjoy The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson as a Michael Clay Thompson language-illustrated classic. The novel is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael’s “language illustrations”—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page.

The novel is a disturbing account of murder and personality, good and evil, and dangerous experiments in a foggy London of the nineteenth century. Michael describes it as “one of literary history’s great stories of intuitive inspiration…. The reasons that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are famous all lie within the book itself. It is an extraordinary book by one of literature’s most talented writers.”

In addition, Stevenson’s “On Some Technical Elements of Style in Literature” is included to demonstrate that the author knew what he was about in the craft of writing. Michael believes that Stevenson is under-appreciated as a serious writer and says that this essay is “one of the best statements in literary history of what a supremely talented writer was thinking.
