Abstract

Evil side of human nature is seen in different ways in the literature. Stevenson explains the evil side with the concept of good vs evil in his novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The novel tries to show us a human is not only one sided but also a human has the other side which we can not see exactly. Stevenson uses two different characters who are actually the same person namely, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Thus, he aims to explain the concept of duality. Lastly, this paper focuses on the connection between concept of good vs evil and religion, psychology in the novel.
