Vollständig neu überarbeitete, korrigierte und illustrierte Fassung Stevensons wohl bedeutendste Geschichte, und eine der berühmtesten Horrornovellen überhaupt, wurde 1886 zum ersten großen Publikumserfolg des bis dahin nur wenig bekannten Robert Louis Stevenson. Dr. Jekyll ist es mit Hilfe von chemischen Experimenten gelungen, der bösen, triebhaften Seite seines Wesens eine eigene Gestalt zu geben. Als Mr. Hyde treibt er im nebelverhangenen London sein Unwesen. Doch die Rückverwandlung in einen Menschen wird immer schwieriger. Mit 19 Illustrationen Ich habe nie einen Kreis von so haßerfüllten Gesichtern gesehen, und in ihrer Mitte stand der Mann mit finsterer, ja spöttischer Kaltblütigkeit, obgleich er selbst erschrocken war — das konnte ich sehen —, doch wußte er das teuflisch gut zu verbergen. ›Wenn Sie Kapital aus dieser Begebenheit zu schlagen gedenken‹, sagte er, ›so bin ich natürlich machtlos. Jeder Ehrenmann wünscht einen Skandal zu vermeiden, nennen Sie Ihre Forderungen!‹ Null Papier Verlag www.null-papier.de

This volume explores various facets of the relationship between the fantastic and the fin de siècle. The essays included here examine how the fin de siècle reflects the fantastic and its relation to the genesis of aesthetic ideas, to the concepts of terror and horror, the sublime, and evil, to Gothic and sensation fiction, to the Aesthetic Movement and Decadence. They also raise the question regarding the ways in which fantastic literature reflects the dynamic and all-too-often controversial development of the concept of the fantastic. At the same time, the majority of the contributions also investigate a broader context of specific social, political and economic conditions that frame the fantastic of the fin de siècle. They examine how fantastic genres use narrative manipulations, and how they incorporate various ideas of scientific development and progress by highlighting the role of religion, cultural anxiety and social crisis, as well as exploring the ways such genres use the fantastic for various purposes of cultural and social subversion. Fin de siècle fantastic literature is also investigated across a variety of cultures, as reflected in Scottish, Canadian, Australian, American and British writing, with particular emphasis on their predominant cultural or generic aspects, the genesis of the fin de siècle fantastic in some of these cultures and literatures, and their relations to a wider historical and cultural framework. The essays as a whole represent the work of scholars working in a diverse range of fields, and therefore adopt a wide range of approaches to the fantastic. As such, this volume provides a fresh and stimulating platform for further rethinking of the concept of the fantastic and its relation to fin de siècle literature, and its theoretical, philosophical, generic, and other implications within a broader literary, social and cultural context.

The Nineteenth-Century Novel: Identities provides an ideal starting point for understanding gender in the novels of this period. It explores the place of fiction in constructing gender identity within society at large, considering Madame Bovary, Portrait of a Lady and The Woman in White. The book continues with a consideration of the novel at the fin de siecle, examining Dracula, The Awakening and Heart of Darkness. These fascinating essays illuminate the ways in which the conventions of realism were disrupted as much by anxieties surrounding colonialism, decadence, degeneration and the 'New Woman' as by those new ideas about human psychology which heralded the advent of psychoanalysis. The concepts which are crucial to the understanding of the literature and society of the nineteenth century are brilliantly explained and discussed in this essential volume.

This book critically examines the long established tradition of adapting classic novels to film or TV screen, encompassing novelists from Jane Austen to Michael Ondaatje. The early cinema ransacked literature for stories suitable for retelling in moving pictures, and as the art of the cinema matured, and cinematography, music, special effects and sound were improved, the art of dramatization began to produce high quality versions of respected novels. The authors in this book analyze a wide variety of literary dramatizations.
