• Take notes.
• This is a story about a man named Henry
Jekyll, developed a potion which can extract
the evil side of human beings and turn himself
into another person with the complete
opposite personality, Edward Hyde.
• This story begins when Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield were
having a walk in the city and passed through a strange door
which reminds Mr. Enfield a weird incident he witnessed. At
there, Mr. Enfield once saw a little girl was screaming
because she was trampling over by a small-figure deformed
man. The man was so cruel and violent and irritated the
crowd for what he did. In the end, the sadistic man offered
to pay a huge amount of compensation to the child’s family.
He walked into that strange door and come out with 10
pounds in gold and 90 pounds in check. People suspected
that the check was forged because it was signed by the
respectable Dr. Jekyll. However, it proved to be valid.
• Afterward, Mr. Utterson discovered one of his clients, Dr.
Jekyll had written a will to make Mr. Hyde be the
benefactor of all of his wealth and property. It made Mr.
Utterson think that Dr. Jekyll might blackmailed by that
person. Thus, Mr. Utterson went to visit his old friend, Dr.
Lanyon to find out the relationship between Dr. Jekyll and
Mr. Hyde. However, Dr. Lanyon said he seldom sees Dr.
Jekyll since ten years ago due to a dispute over the
research matter. Mr. Utterson decided to stake out the
building where Mr. Hyde stayed and he found out how ugly
the man seemed. Besides, he also discovered that
laboratory was linked to Dr. Jekyll’s house and Mr. Hyde had
the complete access to Dr. Jekyll’s house. However, Dr.
Jekyll asked him not to bother anymore.
• One year later, a maid witnessed a murder of Sir
Danvers Carew in a foggy, full-moon night. She
was sure that she saw Mr. Hyde killed Sir Danvers
Carew with a heavy walking stick. Mr. Utterson
and the police went to Mr. Hyde’s house but he
was not there. Soon, he went to find Dr. Jekyll but
he told him that he had ended his relationship
with Mr. Hyde. He gave Mr. Utterson a note which
wrote by Mr. Hyde, telling that he would
disappear forever. Yet, Mr. Utterson’s head clerk,
Mr. Guest found out that the handwriting of the
note is similar to Dr. Jekyll.
• After that, Mr. Hyde was disappeared and Dr.
Jekyll acted more sociable for a few months but
suddenly he started leading a secluded life. At the
same time, Mr. Utterson was dining with Dr.
Lanyon. Dr. Lanyon looked like on the verge of
mental collapse due to Dr. Jekyll. Three weeks
later, Dr. Lanyon died and Mr. Utterson received a
letter from him before he died. Within the
envelope, there was another sealed envelope
with the instruction of not to open it before the
disappearance or death of Dr. Jekyll.
• Another Sunday, Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield
were having a walk along the street. They
decided to take a look at the window and they
saw Dr. Jekyll inside. Mr. Utterson invited him
to come out. He wanted to turn and smile at
them but suddenly his face was full with terror
just like after a great pain. Immediately, he
closed the window and disappear.
• After awhile, Dr. Jekyll's servant Mr.Poole came and
looked for Mr. Utterson. Mr. Poole said Dr. Jekyll had
been comfined himself in his laboratory for over a
week and resquested him to search for several kinds of
chemicals to make a mysterious drug. Mr. Poole had
served Dr. Jekyll for over 20 years so he knew the voice
from the laboratory was not belong to his master.
Hence, he thought Dr. Jekyll was murdered. Mr. Poole
and Mr. Utterson broke into the laboratory and found a
corpse who just commited suicide. It was Mr. Hyde but
in Dr. Jekyll's clothing. They could not find Dr. Jekyll but
a note addressed to Mr. Utterson.
• Inside the note, there was an enclosed document
which indicated the "confession" of Dr. Jekyll but
before that he should read Dr. Lanyon's letter. Dr.
Lanyon revealed that he received a letter from Dr.
Jekyll who asked for favor. He followed all the
instructions and finally he saw Mr. Hyde. He was
insane and he mixed all the ingredients. Due to
curiosity, Dr. Lanyon allowed him drank that
potion in front of him. Horror soon occupied Dr.
Lanyon's mind because he witnessed how the
horrible man transformed into the gentle Dr.
• Lastly, the "confession" of Dr. Jekyll described about his double life.
Dr. Jekyll had been grown up well and thus, was a well-known
person. Therefore, he came up with an idea that divided his private
life and public life into different personalities. He used his scientific
knowledge to develop a potion which can separate himself into
both good and evil side. With this research, Dr. Jekyll could do
anything he wished with his new charater, Edward Hyde without
feeling ashamed or guilty. However, it became worse and gradually
he could not handle another side of him on his own will. Mr. Hyde
could occupy Dr. Jekyll's nature without taking the potion. In the
end, he realized that the potion he first made was mixed with
impurities so the potion after that could not be the same as the first
one. Hence, Dr. Jekyll commited suicide since he did not want to
live as Mr. Hyde forever.
