Promotional Information

From Longman's Cultural Editions series, come three tales of transformation: Mary Shelley's Transformation, Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Joseph Conrad's The Secret Sharer. In these three nightmarish tales, an uncanny other turns out to be a second self, a sharer of intimate anxieties, repressed energies, dark impulses.
